Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Guidance on the specification of windows to be installed in all school building projects is set out in Technical Guidance Document TGD021-1 which is available on my Department's website. These guidelines state the minimum standards to be used in the design and specification of new or replacement windows for use in educational facilities and should be read in conjunction with other relevant design guidance, also available on my Departments website. These guidelines do not set out the standard required for existing windows. These standards apply to all Primary and Post-primary construction projects funded in part or in whole by the Department of Education and Skills.

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Arrangements to establish the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund are being pursued. I have nominated Sylda Langford to become Chairperson of the Board and in accordance with Government procedures, Ms Langford met with the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Education and Social Protection on February 20th to discuss the approach she will take as Chairperson and her views about the future contribution of the new organisation. The process to recruit a Chief Executive Officer (Designate) is also underway. I intend to commence the relevant legislation and appoint the Board shortly.

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Under the Education Act 1998 (as amended by the Education (Amendment) Act 2012) it is the Board of Management or VEC, as appropriate, which is responsible for recruitment, selection, appointment, discipline and dismissal of staff in accordance with procedures published by the Department following consultation with the education partners. The terms and conditions of employment, including remuneration, and the numbers and qualifications of the teachers and other staff of a recognised school who are, or who are to be, remunerated out of monies provided by the Oireachtas, are determined from time to time by the Minister with the concurrence of the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform.

Bullying in Schools

 207. Deputy John O'Mahony Information on John O'Mahony Zoom on John O'Mahony asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn when it is proposed to launch his anti-bullying campaign for schools; the proposed budget for same; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11437/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn On Tuesday 29th of January Minister Fitzgerald and I published the Action Plan on Bullying which sets out twelve actions to help prevent and tackle bullying in primary and second level schools. I have ring-fenced €500,000 to support implementation of these actions this year. Officials from my Department have already commenced work on the implementation of the actions. In particular, an awareness raising initiative on cyber bullying targeted at young people is already underway and the Department is supporting the Stand Up! Awareness Week Against Homophobic & Transphobic Bullying in second level schools in March. Work will continue on implementing the Action Plan on Bullying in the coming months.

Third Level Staff Remuneration

 208. Deputy Peter Mathews Information on Peter Mathews Zoom on Peter Mathews asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn the numbers and grades of persons, by university, who have been offered a post and have subsequently not taken the post as a result of discussions on salary levels each year since 2009; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11445/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Universities are autonomous statutory bodies and my Department has no function in their operational management, including matters relating to the recruitment of college staff. The information requested by the Deputy is therefore not available in my Department or the Higher Education Authority.

Student Support Schemes

 209. Deputy Patrick Nulty Information on Patrick Nulty Zoom on Patrick Nulty asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn if he will confirm that the student assistance fund will not expire for the 2013/14 academic year and that it will continue in place; his views on whether there is an even greater need for the fund in the current economic circumstances in view of the increase in numbers of students availing or attempting to avail of the fund recently; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11461/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn The objective of the Student Assistance Fund is to assist students, in a sensitive and compassionate manner, who might otherwise, due to their financial circumstances, be unable to continue their third level studies. The Fund is managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) on behalf of my Department and is funded under the National Development Plan, with assistance from the European Social Fund. A survey conducted by the HEA in November 2012 showed that the higher education sector is experiencing a significant increase in demand for the Fund over last year. In response to the increased demand, I approved an additional €3m to supplement the Fund, which was allocated in December 2012, bringing the total allocation for 2012-13 to €11m. The Fund is expected to assist in the region of 16,000 students this academic year. I have no plans at present to discontinue the Student Assistance Fund.

Special Educational Needs

 212. Deputy Michael McGrath Information on Michael McGrath Zoom on Michael McGrath asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn if he will ensure that a child (details supplied) in County Cork will receive the appropriate level of assistance and supervision, through resource hours and the support of a special needs assistant, while attending primary school. [11493/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn I wish to advise the Deputy that the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) is responsible, through its network of local Special Educational Needs Organisers (SENOs), for processing applications from schools for special educational needs supports, including Special Needs Assistant (SNA) support. The NCSE operates within my Department's established criteria for the allocation of such supports and the staffing resources available to my Department.

All schools were advised to apply to the NCSE for resource teaching and SNA support for the 2012/13 school year by 16th March, 2012. All schools, including the school referred to by the Deputy, have been advised by the NCSE of their resource teaching and SNA staffing allocation for the current school year. Details of the allocations which have been made to each school are available at www.ncse.ie. All primary schools receive a quantum of resource hours for children with special educational needs through the General Allocation Model and also through individual allocations for children with low incidence special needs.

The NCSE allocates a level of SNA support for each school annually taking into account the care needs of all of the qualifying children enrolled in the school. SNAs should then be deployed by schools in a manner which best meets the care support requirements of the children enrolled in the school for whom SNA support has been allocated. It is a matter for schools to allocate support as required, and on the basis of individual need, which allows schools flexibility in how the SNA support is utilised.

Where schools have enrolled new pupils with special educational needs who were not considered at the time that the allocations for the 2012/13 school year were made, or where schools are in a position to demonstrate that they cannot cater for the care needs of qualifying children from the level of SNA support which has been assigned to them, they may apply to the NCSE for additional SNA support or for a review of their SNA allocation. Similarly where SNA support was not initially allocated for a child in a junior infant class, but where it can be demonstrated that the child requires SNA assistance in the classroom environment, the school may apply to the NCSE for additional SNA support or for a review of their SNA allocation.

All schools have the names and contact details of their local SENO. Parents may also contact their local SENO directly to discuss their child's special educational needs, using the contact details available on www.ncse.ie.

Bullying in Schools

 213. Deputy Terence Flanagan Information on Terence Flanagan Zoom on Terence Flanagan asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn his views on correspondence regarding bullying (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11505/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Under the Education (Welfare) Act 2000, all schools are required to have in place a Code of Behaviour and this code must be drawn up in accordance with the guidelines of the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB). The NEWB guidelines were issued to schools in 2008 and make it clear that each school must have policies to prevent or address bullying and harassment and schools must make clear in their code of behaviour that bullying is unacceptable. The guidelines further state that as well as making explicit that bullying is prohibited in the school, and having an anti-bullying policy, the code of behaviour should indicate what action the school will take in relation to alleged breaches of the school's bullying policy. Every school therefore must have in place a policy, within the framework of the school's overall school code of behaviour, which includes specific measures to deal with bullying behaviour. Such a code, developed through consultation with the whole school community and properly implemented, can be the most influential measure in countering bullying behaviour in schools.

I am fully aware of the seriousness of the issue of bullying and it was for that reason that an Anti-Bullying Forum was held in May last year. The Deputy will be aware that I established a working group to address the issue of tackling bullying in schools, including cyber-bullying. The Group produced an Action Plan recommending further measures that can be taken to effectively tackle bullying, including cyber bullying, in schools. I broadly accept the proposed actions in the Action Plan which was published in January. I have asked officials in my Department to commence work on implementing the Action Plan in consultation with teachers, parents and management bodies at first and second-level schools.

My Department's role is to clarify for parents and students how their grievances and complaints against schools can be progressed. Guidance to parents on progressing a concern in relation their child's school is available on my Department's website at www.education.ie. Where a parent feels that the school's board of management has failed to investigate or adequately investigate their complaint, they should contact the Ombudsman for Children.

The Office of the Ombudsman for Children may independently investigate complaints about schools recognised with the Department of Education and Skills, provided the parent has firstly and fully followed the school's complaints procedures. The key criterion for any intervention by the Ombudsman for Children is that the action of the school has had a negative effect on a child. The office can be contacted at Ombudsman for Children's Office, Millennium House, 52-56 Great Strand Street, Dublin1, (Ph) 1800 20 20 40 or (01) 8656800, E-mail oco@oco.ie.

Schools Administration

 214. Deputy Mary Mitchell O'Connor Information on Mary Mitchell O'Connor Zoom on Mary Mitchell O'Connor asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn in relation to schools where not every child who wants to, can do transition year, his views on whether there should be a fair and transparent system for selecting children, that is, a lottery, rather than having teachers decide who is left out as this can lead to abuse, favouritism, discrimination and prejudice; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11519/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn The management authority of each school carries responsibility for making decisions regarding the Transition Year Programme in that school. In some schools, the programme is compulsory for all students. In those that offer it as an option, circumstances may arise where it is necessary to limit the number of students who can avail of it. It is the board of management of each individual school that decides the number of places available to students on programmes such as Transition Year. In cases where restrictions apply, schools should have clear procedures regarding how places are allocated to students.

Student Grant Scheme Applications

 215. Deputy Micheál Martin Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn the position regarding an application for a higher education grant in respect of a person (details supplied)in County Dublin; when this application will be processed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11525/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Officials in my Department have confirmed with Student Universal Support Ireland that the student referred to by the Deputy has been awarded a grant and an award letter issued on 28th February, 2013.

School Curriculum

 216. Deputy Terence Flanagan Information on Terence Flanagan Zoom on Terence Flanagan asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn if he will provide an update on his plans announced in May 2012 to introduce Chinese language and culture as an option subject for the leaving certificate; the year in which Chinese will be available to study as a subject in the leaving certificate, taking into account the increase in trade, economic and educational and cultural exchanges between Ireland, China and the EU; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11536/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn There are a range of foreign languages available on the curriculum in schools -- French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Arabic. Chinese is not currently on the curriculum. It is not possible in the current budgetary situation to expand the range of languages available in the post primary curriculum. However, the availability of Transition Year and the option for the NCCA or others, including schools, to developed short courses proposed as part of junior cycle reform will, in the future, give opportunities for the development of additional languages, including Chinese. The NCCA is developing a short course in Chinese which should be available in schools from September 2014.

Student Grant Scheme Applications

 217. Deputy Patrick Nulty Information on Patrick Nulty Zoom on Patrick Nulty asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn if a student grant application will be expedited in respect of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 15; the reason for the delay; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11538/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Officials in my Department have confirmed with Student Universal Support Ireland, that on 28th February 2013, a request for further documentation was issued to the student referred to by the Deputy. When the requested documentation is returned the student will be notified directly of the outcome. The Deputy should be aware that, following a request from my Department, the Higher Education Authority requested that institutions show flexibility, as most have done in the past, to students awaiting a decision on their grant application.

 221. Deputy Seán Kyne Information on Seán Kyne Zoom on Seán Kyne asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn the progress of the replacement scheme for pre-fabs that his Department is operating. [11609/13]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Under my Department's Prefab Replacement Initiative announced in March 2012 over 170 schools have been approved to replace their rented prefab accommodation with permanent. In excess of €42million has been allocated for this initiative of which €19.7 million has been paid to date. Funding is provided in two traunches, 70% when the project goes to construction and the remaining 30% on completion. A total of 104 schools have already gone to construction and 10 of these have been completed. The rental savings achieved by the 10 completed projects are in the region of €118,000.00. These figures will be subject to change as further projects are completed. This funding is being provided to schools to replace rented prefabs that are currently providing mainstream classroom and resource rooms for an estimated 6,000 pupils. In total 286 mainstream classrooms currently in rented prefabs will receive permanent buildings. Resource rooms and other ancillary accommodation will also be replaced as part of this initiative and a rental saving of up to €5m will be achieved when all the projects are completed.
