1. Special Circumstances – there are three documents for this section. The SC1 Form, the SC guide for parents and the SCR Form.

The “Claiming Special Circumstances – A Guide for parents and guardians*” has been written to help parents but each Principal should make sure that he / she is very familiar with the content – You will undoubtedly come across requests for advice and as you are very aware PPTC is not involved in any decisions relating to Admissions.

The SCR form is the way in which parents Register a Claim for Special Circumstances – PPTC Schools ask for this to be returned no later than 2.00pm 14th December 2022 to the Assessment Centre where the child sat the Assessment – the SCR is designed to help parents and PPTC schools – it is expected that many parents would be very aware, close to the time of the Assessment, if they believe their child’s performance may have been affected by a factor which justifies the claim.
If the SCR information is based on an alleged ‘incident’ at an Assessment Centre then the PPTC school has an opportunity to be appraised of the situation. Each PPTC school will have kept the “Record of Incidents” sheets as evidence of anything that happened in any room, or e.g. in the corridors, on Assessment Day. If application is made to a school other than the PPTC Centre where the child sat the Entranxe Assessment then that school may approach the PPTC Centre for evidence regarding the “alleged incident”

The SC1 form is the important document in which parents provide (as part of the Post Primary Transfer Application) the evidence to support their claim.
Although the absence of a completed SCR does not of itself invalidate a completed SC1 – the presence or absence of an SCR can be helpful to BOGs, depending on the nature of the Claim. It is solely a matter for each BOG to determine how to evaluate the evidence.
