What We Do..
Providing High Quality Editable Planning Templates & Sample Plans for Irish Primary School Teachers
One of the most time consuming jobs a teacher has to do is written planning and preparation. Primary school long term plans for September and fortnightly plans during the year are essential for teachers. However the requirements with regards to planning can be confusing, especially for new teachers or experienced teachers starting in a new role or setting.
Requirements for planning for primary school teachers have been in place since 1965. Rule 126 for National Schools states that Irish school teachers are required to prepare a detailed scheme of work in each subject, suited to the needs of their pupils. Further guidelines on Preparation for Teaching and Learning were published by the DoES during 2021 (you can read a summary of these guidelines in our blog post here). The National Induction Programme for Teachers (NIPT) also provided detailed guidance regarding layout and content for long term plans including templates, guidelines and examples. In addition to this, in 2015 when the Primary Language Curriculum was published, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) produced its own sample template for long term planning, further adding to the confusion over planning documentation.
Preparing English, Irish, Maths, Science etc. long-term plans for the year can require hundreds of hours of work and can easily become overwhelming. Writing support plans for pupils can be confusing when you’re not sure what to include. Creating templates for plans where there is no Department samples is tedious and difficult. The Teaching Plans online shop solves these problems! We provide Irish teachers with quality primary school sample written planning, planning templates, sample timetables, and other teaching resources which you can quickly and easily tailor to your own class, so that you can dedicate more time to teaching and less to written planning. To provide additional help and support, we share guidance, hints, tips, and useful resources in our Irish teaching blog.
The Primary Language Curriculum sample long term and short term sample plans and templates available on this website contain ALL of the sections recommended in the NIPT and NCCA templates. All English and Gaeilge long term plans on teachingplans.ie are based on the most recent 2019 version of the PLC, and took weeks to complete.
In short, we have sample, editable long term written plans for all primary school class levels and for SET, EAL and autism class teachers to save you time and hassle. Sample fortnightly plans for all class levels are currently being created. Our editable Irish primary school curriculum sample planning is of the highest quality.
