Student Care


Castlecomer Community School aims to provide a safe and respectful learning environment for all which can only be achieved with the co-operation of the whole school community.
Our Pastoral Care system provides a network which monitors the academic and personal development of individual students. A tutor assigned to each junior class will take a particular interest in the activities and progress of each student. The Year Heads have responsibility for a year group and will liaise with the Principal, Deputy Principal, Chaplain and Guidance Counsellor while also keeping in close contact with each subject teacher.

 

School supports include:


Behavioral Support services
Chaplain
Counseling services
Guidance Counselor
Tutors
Year Head
Learning Support
Resource Teachers
Senior Mentors
Student’s Council

Wellread Programme

wellreadlogo

We are delighted to announce that we have received the "wellread" award, an initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development. The school community is now recognised nationally as a school that promotes and encourages a culture of reading.

You can read more about the award on the PDST website by clicking here, and you can find out more about our school initiatives under the "extra-curricular" tab above.
