What is an Extended School?

“An Extended School provides a range of services and activities during or beyond the school day, to help meet the needs of children, their families and the wider community.”

All administration is now carried out through the Northern Ireland Extended Schools Information Systems (NIESIS) which is available at www.niesis.org.
