In Ennistymon vocational school we have a highly developed Pastoral Care system where each student is individually known, nurtured and cared for. We aim to ensure that the academic, physical, emotional and social well-being of each student is supported in a meaningful way. Small classes guarantee individual attention and promote an environment which nurtures each student and where each student can develop their talents and maximise their achievements both on an academic and a personal level. An excellent rapport between teachers and students is a hallmark of the communication systems in this school. We have additional staff members who provide specialist care and support to our students and their parents.

Special Educational Needs

Our Special Education Department has a long history  in being a thriving and innovative sector , which provides an holistic and inclusive approach to the provision of special education in our school. We pride ourselves in being a model of best practice in special education .  Our qualified and dedicated Special Educational Needs team  of teachers and teaching assistants offer a wide range of teaching  support for pupils with special education needs. . 

We provide support for all students with models of co-teaching practice in subject areas.  We provide learning support for those students  with learning difficulties  and learning disabilities to address their literacy,  numeracy and accessing the curriculum needs. We provide resource teaching for those with more specialised educational needs,  to address their social, emotional, behavioural, and or  physical and sensory needs. 

Our aim is to assist students with special education needs , to leave school with the skills necessary to participate to the level of their capacity in an inclusive way, in the social and economic activities of society and more importantly, to live independent, happy and fulfilled lives.

Guidance 

The Guidance Counsellor advises on career choices and assists pupils in making educational, vocational and personal decisions. She supports and helps students who are experiencing difficulty in their lives.   

 Students and parents are free and welcome to come and visit the guidance counsellor. An appointment system is the best operational mode in this way. Alternatively, a phone call from parents over a concern can be accommodated quickly. Also, as part of overall school information dissemination e.g. school notices, parent-teacher meetings, open nights, enrolment days etc. information regarding guidance and counselling is made available as required.
