We have a dedicated Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCo), Mr Niall Kelly who leads strategically to ensure that any child with an additional need, whether it be educational or medical, is supported and enabled to reach their full potential, academically and holistically.


As SENCo, Mr Kelly’s role is:

  • To actively lead and coordinate our Learning Support provision;

  • To act as a valuable point of contact for students, parents, teaching staff, non-teaching staff and outside support services in relation to Learning Support for students of our school;

  • To enable our students to meet their full potential by removing any barriers, or potential barriers, on their learning journey;

  • To continually monitor and evaluate SEN provision; identifying and promoting best practice.


In terms of meeting all needs and more specifically, additional needs, here at St. Joseph’s / Scoil Iósaef, we are proud of our dedicated teaching staff. In addition, we have an excellent team of Learning Support Assistants who go above and beyond to support and help nurture the children in their care.

Mr Kelly explains that,

“It is an honour, not only to have been entrusted with this vital role in St. Joseph’s / Scoil Iósaef, but also to work with such a dedicated and progressive staff who never give up and are fully committed to meeting the needs of the students in our school”.


You can be assured that the staff in St. Joseph’s / Scoil Iósaef will leave no stone unturned to support your child to achieve their full potential.
