The pastoral care of every student is at the very core of our philosophy. We recognise each girl as a unique and valued person with different talents and needs. While all teachers are involved in pastoral care on a daily basis, we assign each class to the special care of a Class Tutor.
The Year Head monitors the discipline of each year group as well as their academic and social progress.
The Guidance Counsellor, whose comprehensive advice extends throughout the whole school, meets with each student individually during her senior cycle.
The Learning Support Team assesses pupils with special needs and gives tuition to students on an individual or small group basis.
The Chaplain guides the spiritual development of students.
The Care Team meets on a weekly basis to set up supports for students who are experiencing difficulties and aims to ensure, in a confidential and sensitive manner, that each student is nurtured during her time with us.
English language support is offered to students whose first language is neither English or Irish and who are assessed as requiring additional help with English. This support enables students to access the Junior & Leaving certificate programmesand integrate more fully into the school community.
The Rainbows Programme supports students bereaved through death or separation.
The Home/School/Community Liaison Scheme offers support to parents and guardians through courses in the Parents’ Centre and other initiatives.
Parental involvement is greatly welcomed through our Parents’ Association. Parents are kept informed of their daughters’ progress through annual Parent Teacher meetings, end of term reports and on a weekly basis, through the school journal. Teachers are always happy to meet parents on an individual basis, by appointment.
