Learning Support Programme


The Learning Support Department is an integral part of Santa Sabina. Our team consists of a Special Needs Co-ordinator, Ciaran Flynn who works with Audrey Carty. Both teachers are fully qualified in the area of special educational needs.

The main aim of our team is to cater for students who require additional support in their academic subjects. We strive for equal educational opportunities for all students and we assist students who experience learning difficulties in reaching their potential.

Classes take place on an individual or small group basis for students across all year groups. Co-teaching, where two teachers are timetabled to teach a class is also in operation in the school. This allows students with additional needs to remain in their mainstream class, while still receiving support.

The Learning Support Department works closely and on a continuous basis with parents, mainstream class teachers, year heads, guidance counsellor, deputy principal and principal to ensure that all students’ needs are identified and, in turn, provision is put in place to aid their academic and personal success in school.
