Caring for your daughter, building her future

SUPPORT SERVICES

There are a number of support services available to students in North Pres. We take a coordinated approach to ensure the best possible intervention(s) for individual students.

  • Learning Support Team

The Learning Support Service identifies students who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties. Students may then be withdrawn to work individually or in small groups with the teacher.

  • Mentoring

Mentoring is provided through the Cork City Partnership Mentoring Programme with the objective of promoting and supporting successful completion of secondary education for Traveller Students.

  • School Completion Programme

The School Completion Programme aims to have a significant positive impact on the levels of pupil retention in primary and second level schools and on numbers of pupils who successfully complete the Senior Cycle.

  • Behaviour Support Teacher

The social and emotional behaviour of the student as well as their academic work is addressed through this intervention.

  • Guidance

Career guidance is available to students in the school through timetabled classes and individual meetings with the Guidance Counsellor for issues such as subject, course, career and lifestyle choices.

  • School Counselling/Art Therapy

Counselling is available to students who need to discuss personal issues or concerns with a qualified counsellor.

The focus of the work in the Art Therapy centre is to build a positive relationship with the students to help them achieve their potential while in secondary education.

  • Home School Community Liaison

The Home School Community Liaison scheme reaches out beyond the school walls to the homes and communities from which our pupils come. The HSCL Co-ordinator supports parents through home visits, classes for parents and community members and through involvement with agencies working in the community. The HSCL Co-ordinator works closely with all support services in the school.

Confidentiality

Teachers cannot offer total confidentiality to a young person who discloses certain information of a student welfare nature to them.
