Additional Educational Needs

The school uses the resources provided by the Department of
Education to make provision for students with special
educational needs. We work closely with and are supported by
NEPS (National Educational Psychological Service). The Learning
Support Team in C.B.S. Thurles is committed to providing a
comprehensive and effective learning support service for students
to enable all students to achieve their full potential. Team teaching
helps students in the classroom while some students are
withdrawn for extra support. Special Needs Assistants (SNA’s) offer other
supports to individual students and are an important part of the
Learning Support Team.

A key cornerstone of the success of our SEN department is the trusting relationships built up with all the stakeholders, students, parents and the SEN team. All of our work in the SEN department is done in consultation with parents and student to achieve the best outcomes for your sons.
