Disciplinary Procedures

Principal and Teachers

In 2009 the Department of Education and Skills, in consultation with Educate Together and the other primary management bodies, published revised procedures in relation to professional competence and general disciplinary matters for teachers.

The procedures, available for both principals and teachers, are divided into two sections to be utilised in the appropriate circumstances:

  • Procedures relating to professional competence issues
  • Procedures relating to work, conduct and matters other than professional competence

The procedures are available on the Department of Education and Skills website as Circular 60/2009

Special Needs Assistants

Disciplinary and Grievance procedures for Special Needs Assistants were published in 2001 and are available on the Department of Education and Skills website as Circular 72/2011

Other School Staff

There are no Department of Education and Skills published disciplinary procedures for other school staff available. Boards of Management should consult the staff members contract and follow the procedures outlined there.
