Support to fast track flexible school starting age plans welcome – Brogan

Sinn Féin MLA Nicola Brogan has welcomed proposals to fast track flexibility for families when it comes to school starting age for some children.

The West Tyrone MLA said:

“Many families are waiting and relying on these new plans, particularly those parents of babies born from April to June.

“Cross party support for fast tracking these proposals will give some comfort and relief to these families.

“Introducing flexibility to the school starting age for children has the potential to make a huge difference to their development. 

“Sinn Féin will work to ensure that the Education Minister gets these proposals over the line and in place for families as soon as possible.”
