School Support 2021/2022





School support 2022/23


School Support applications have closed for this school year. 


We will reopen applications for the upcoming academic year on the week beginning May 23, 2022. Further details on how to apply will be issued to schools at that time.




Application overview:


Please note that schools can submit one application for general school support which must be approved by the School Principal. Schools are invited to select up to three areas for support on this application. We would be grateful if you would also update your school profile details in order to ensure that PDST has the correct information for communication purposes.


Once your application is submitted you will receive an email receipt (to the email address detailed on the school profile) and you will be given the option to print off the application for your records. A PDST advisor will then make contact with you to arrange the support. Please be advised that while we endeavour to respond to all applications made, this is subject to team capacity and available resources at any one time.
