Improving Educational Outcomes for children and young people in West Limerick
What is the School Completion Programme?
The School Completion Programme (SCP) provides support to children and young people to help them to get the most from their education.
The West Limerick SCP project focuses on:
- Improving childrenâs attendance at school
- Improving childrenâs participation in school (involvement in class and school activities)
- Improving childrenâs retention (staying in school)
Who is the West Limerick SCP for?
The West Limerick SCP is a targeted service for children and young people who require additional support to get the most from their education. It is not open to all pupils and students.
Children and young people must be referred to SCP. Schools, parents and other agencies can refer.
Once a referral is made, then the SCP will see if SCP is the best support for the child. Not every child that is referred will receive support.
If you are interested in finding out more you can contact Stephanie Mulvihill, Co-ordinator or Nicola Hayes , HSCL, Co-ordinator.
