There are more than 12,500 Ukrainian pupils currently enrolled in Irish schools.

According to the Department of Education, just short of 8,000 are in primary schools, with just under 4,600 pupils enrolled in secondary schools.

Dublin is the county with the largest number of pupils enrolled at 1,905, followed by Cork, with 1,253 and County Kerry, with 1,222.

1,217 pupils are attending primary school in Dublin, and 688 are in secondary school.

The Department of Education says: "As of 1 November, 12,544 Ukrainian pupils have been enrolled in schools across Ireland. Out of that figure, 7,948 of these pupils have been accommodated in primary schools while 4,596 pupils have enrolled in post-primary schools.

"To assist with the transition of Ukrainian refugees and their families into Irish schools Regional Education and Language Teams (REALT) continue to operate, hosted by the 16 regional education and training boards around Ireland and staffed by regionally based education support personnel.

"These teams are ensuring that clear, accessible information flows are in place between schools, local education support services and national support structures in relation to people arriving from Ukraine."
