Admission and Enrolment

Early Intervention Special Class

Patrick’s National School has been sanctioned for an Early Intervention Special Class for Autistic Students since September 2023 in line with the Department of Education and Skills criteria.


This class is intended to meet the needs of students with complex and severe educational needs arising from their diagnosis of ASD. It is intended for students who have a diagnosis of ASD meeting DSM IV/V or ICD-10 diagnosis criteria and is for all students who meet the criteria irrespective of cognitive ability.


This early intervention special class for ASD will have a maximum of six pupils and is staffed with one teaching post and two special needs assistants per class of six.

Deadline for applications is Monday 4th March 2024.

At St Patrick's National School we recognize that choosing the right school for your child is extremely important and that each school has its individual characteristics.

Please visit us at any time, our doors are always open and you will receive a warm welcome. We offer personal visits, to include a tour of the school and a meeting with the Principal, when possible. 

Admission can take place at any point in the term and we do not have an entrance examination. 

The Admissions process can be started by making contact with our school office to talk through the Admissions process and tell you all about school days at St Patrick's. 

To arrange an appointment please contact the office on 01 287 5684.
