Background of School Completion Programme
School Completion Programme is a Dept of Education & Science programme working throughout the country to encourage young people to stay in school. There are currently 25000 young people
involved in the programme in over 500 schools.
Deeside School Completion Programme
Our cluster of schools consists of 7 schools, at both primary and secondary level in rural Louth and Meath. Project staff are based in each of the three secondary schools; where we work on a daily basis with school staff to ensure that our young people are supported and encouraged to reach
their full potential.
At Deeside, we support young people in a number of ways, school attendance, homework, exams, project work, lunches, moving from primary to secondary school and resolving difficulties and personal problems. All this work happens in an individual or group setting.
As part of our work with young people, we build trusting and supportive relationships with parents/guardians which in turn allow us to create a positive school experience for young people.
To enhance our work and to ensure the best service, we work closely with other agencies in the community. This work allows our families, our schools and our community to benefit from the support services available.
Some of the agencies our programme works closely with are:
