Gaelscoil Philib Barún

Autism Special Class

We are delighted to announce that an autism special class has been sanctioned by the Department of Education to open in Gaelscoil Philib Barún in September 2024. The class will cater for a maximum of six pupils.

Applications can be made by submitting an email seeking enrolment, to be accompanied by a birth certificate and any relevant professional reports. The Application for Enrolment form is available from our Policies & Forms page of our website (where the school’s enrolment policy is also available). Applications for places in the class will be accepted until Tuesday, 30th April 2024.

Please be aware that Gaelscoil Philib Barún is an all-Irish speaking school and the special class will follow the school language policy as is the practice in every special class in all-Irish school settings. The special class will be resourced as per Department of Education guidelines. Applications will be accepted until the special class is full and will follow criteria laid out in the relevant section in the school’s enrolment policy.

For those parents not familiar with the school and who wish to view the school’s facilities, Gaelscoil Philib Barún will reopen after school holidays on Monday, 8 April 2024.
