Pastoral Care

We are very proud of our Pastoral Care system in Castlecomer Community School, which is in place to support and guide your child through their time with us.

  • In first year each student is placed in a Class Group, with a dedicated class teacher, This teacher will be the first line of support for the students, and they will remain as part of this groups for the Junior Cycle.
  • Each year group is overseen by the Year Head, who deals with pastoral, behavioural and academic issues.
  • We have a chaplain (Ms Cuddy) and two Guidance Counsellors (Mr. Tynan and Ms. Broderick) on the staff, who are there for issues that may require more indepth help.
  • As well as all these layers of support. the school also has access to a professional counsellor, and appointments can be arranged for a student to see them if necessary.

Wellread Programme


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.
