Wellbeing & Support

“Wellbeing is present when students realise their abilities, take care of their physical wellbeing, can cope with the normal stresses of life, and have a sense of purpose and belonging to a wider community”. (Junior Cycle Wellbeing Guidelines 2021.)

Physical and mental wellbeing is central to all programmes in our school.

The 4 key areas of wellbeing promotion are:


Student Support Team (SST)

The Student Support Team (SST) meets weekly. Members include Principal, Deputy Principal, Year Head, SEN Coordinator, HSCL, and Guidance Counsellor.

The Role of SST

Through implementing a continuum of support, the SST can provide for the educational, social, emotional, behavioural and learning needs of all, some and few students to ensure their ongoing wellbeing.

‘Best practice indicates that schools adopt a whole-school, multi-component, preventative approach to wellbeing promotion that includes both universal and targeted interventions’. Anne Tansey, Director NEPS.

The work of the SST is central to this approach and we have developed our SST structures as part of our wellbeing promotion process in the school.
