Grants for School Years 2016/2017

1. Standard Capitation Grant: €296 per capita less the contribution to teachers’ salaries of €562 per whole time equivalent (WTE) teacher on the DES payroll. The grant is paid in three installments based on current enrolment:

September 2016: €99 per capita;    January 2017: €99 per capita;     April 2017: €99 per capita.

N.B. Where the school's enrolment increases or decreases, the September and January payments are calculated on 2015/2016 enrolment and the full adjustment for current year enrolment is applied to the April payment.

2. DEIS Grant (DEIS Schools only): €159 per student x disadvantage rating (usually 30%)

3. Support Services Grant€206 per capita in 2016 and €210 per capita in 2017 payable in three instalments in September, January and April. The minimum grant payable for 2017 is set at €42,000.

4. Grants for Secretaries:

a) Basic Secretarial Grant - €37 per capita in 2016 and €38 per capita in 2017. The maximum grant payable for 2016 is set at €13,300

b) School Services Support Fund (SSSF) Secretary Grant - €25 per capita in 2016 and €25.50 per capita in 2017. The minimum grant payable for 2017 is set at €5,100 and the maximum grant is set at €8,925)

(School secretaries employed under ‘the 1978 scheme are paid directly by the DES and therefore any such school is not entitled to the secretarial grants above regardless of its enrolment figure. However, if this secretary resigns/retires the school will be paid a grant based on enrolment figure subject to a maximum of 350).

 
5. Grants for Caretakers:

a) Basic Caretaker Grant - €31 per capita in 2016 and €31.50 per capita in 2017. The maximum grant payable for 2017 is set at €11,025

b) School Services Support Fund (SSSF) Caretaker Grant - €19 per capita in 2016 and €19.50 per capita in 2017. The minimum grant payable for 2017 is set at €3,900 and the maximum grant payable is set at €6,825.

To qualify for the Basic Secretary or Caretaker Grants a school must have an enrolment figure of at least 200 pupils. The grant is calculated by multiplying the enrolment figure by the rate per capita up to a maximum of 350 pupils. If a school subsequently falls below the 200 enrolment figure the grant is paid on the enrolment figure x rate.

The SSSF Caretaker/Secretary Grants are paid to schools receiving either of the above mainstream grants. A school in receipt of the Secretary Grant will receive the SSSF – Secretary Grant and a school in receipt of the Caretaker Grant will receive the SSSF – Caretaker Grant. Each eligible school will receive a minimum grant based on 200 pupils up to a maximum based on 350 pupils. Schools with enrolments between 200 and 350 will be paid on a pro rata basis.

Schools that have never reached a minimum enrolment figure of 200 pupils, and therefore are not in receipt of the Caretaker or Secretary grants, are still entitled to the SSSF Caretaker (€19.50 per student for 2017) and SSSF Secretary (€25.50 per student for 2017) grants at the minimum grant of 200 x Rate.
