St. Killians is a primary school which specialises in providing programmes designed to cater for the individual needs, talents and potential of pupils with a range of specific educational difficulties.
Each child's uniqueness is valued within the school, which fosters a secure, caring and positive environment to enable pupils to develop their full potential.
The school values the contribution of all staff in the creation of such an environment and in facilitating the pupils to find within themselves the strengths to deal with their educational, personal, emotional, social and spiritual difference.
We are a Department of Education School, which is under the patronship of the Catholic BishopCork and Ross.
Children attend from Cork City and County and are transported to school by taxi, mini-bus, or parents on a daily basis.
All children have Individual Educational Plans, with targets set by both educational, health professionals, parents and the pupils where possible.
The team consists of:
Principal, Teacher, Resource Teacher, Special Needs/Classroom Assistant, Speech & Language Therapist and Occupational Therapist.
All of the above posts are subject to funding.
We aim to...
Create a secure and caring environment that challenges the pupil to develop their potential, in co-operation with parents/guardians.
Facilitate the child in finding within themselves the strengths to recognise their talents while dealing with their educational differences.
Provide a high standard of diagnostic, remediation and compensatory education.
Provide strategies and techniques for the child to recognise and be realistic in choices.
Parent involvement in the school is actively welcomed, encouraged and valued.
