13,753 Ukrainian pupils in schools across Ireland

Cork has the 3rd highest number of Ukrainian pupils enrolled in schools in the country, with 872 at primary level and 482 at post-primary level.

The latest numbers were confirmed by the Department of Education at the beginning of the new year and show that overall, 13,753 Ukrainian pupils have been enrolled in schools across Ireland.

Out of that overall figure, 8,823 of the pupils have been accommodated in primary schools while 4,930 pupils have enrolled in post-primary schools.

Dublin has the most Ukrainian pupils enrolled with 1,216 primary and 674 post-primary, and Kerry has the 2nd most with 879 primary and 494 post-primary.

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

These teams are ensuring 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 gov.ie/Ukraine.

The department has confirmed it will continue to publish figures on the enrolment of Ukrainian children each month.
