18,133 Ukrainian students in Irish Schools

Posted by on 11/06/2024. 18,133 Ukrainian students in Irish SchoolsTags: Teachers Parenting

The Department of Education can confirm that 18,133 Ukrainian pupils had been enrolled in schools across Ireland at the beginning of June. Out of that figure, 11,287 of these pupils had been accommodated in primary schools while 6,846 pupils had enrolled in post-primary schools.

This data indicates an enrolment rate of 93.1% among Ukrainian children aged 5-18 who have come to Ireland.

The department wishes to thank school communities and stakeholders at a local and national level across Ireland for their engagement, collaboration and support in accommodating Ukrainian pupils in Irish primary and post-primary schools.

To assist with the transition of Ukrainian students and their families into Irish schools, Regional Education and Language Teams (REALT) continue to operate. These are hosted by the 16 regional Education and Training Boards around Ireland and staffed by regionally-based education support personnel.

These teams continue to make sure that clear, accessible information flows are in place between schools, local education support services and national support structures in relation to people arriving from Ukraine.

Information for parents in Ukrainian and Russian on accessing school places is available on
