Clongowes is an inclusive school and, as such, provides Learning Support to students to help them reach their full academic potential. Learning Support practices are developed to improve the learning experiences for students with educational difficulties and this includes a solution-based framework of assessment and intervention.
We promote positive attitudes, values, and open relationships which lead to open communication with students, parents and teachers. While engaging with students, making learning meaningful and enjoyable, we are able to set attainable standards of achievement in a flexible teaching environment.
We operate in a relaxed atmosphere, where students feel welcome to drop in, and discuss any perceived learning difficulties, which they are experiencing. Collaboration with teachers, prefects, and external services is fostered and an essential part of the process. The Learning Support staff is also involved in the co-curricular life of the school where we are actively supportive in areas such as debating and drama.
