There are 3 active circulars relating to prescribed material for Junior Cycle English:

From September 2017 onwards, all teachers are entitled to a reduction in teaching time as outlined in DES Circular 0079/2018. Here, we provide some suggestions for things you might consider as part of the range of individual and collaborative professional activities you will engage in during this time.
The resources below have been designed to support teachers and English subject departments in planning their second/third year English programme.
Teachers who use the JCSP programme may find the attached draft JCSP English statements useful to serve as a guide for planning for teaching and learning in junior cycle English.
