Pupils under the statutory school leaving age can only be employed within their term of the byelaws on the Employment of Children.  These regulations do not permit the employment of children less than 13 years of age, and for those over the age there are limits in the hours and type of employment that are allowed.

Parents and employers must both complete an application form for an employment permit before the employment begins.  Forms are available from the School Office.

Further details can be obtained from the School Office or the Department of Education and Children’s Services (Inclusion & Equality).
