While all members of staff help and support students who are experiencing difficulties with aspects of their courses the school has a team of dedicated Learning Support teachers.
The Learning Support team is lead by Amy Lucas, Rosemaire Quilty Sharry and Deputy Principal Emmet McDonnell . They assesses students to determine the level of help required in the areas of both literacy and numeracy. This help is provided on both an individual basis and through a team teaching approach, which involves other members of staff.
The progress of students requiring help is continually monitored and parents are kept informed.
Where special arrangements are required for examinations such as the use of a tape-recorder, scribe etc. these arrangements are put in place and the Learning Support teacher helps the students to make proper use of the help being provided.
