Christ King Secondary School Special Educational Needs Department

Christ King Girls Secondary School recognises the person as an individual which is the cornerstone of our mission statement. Special education in the school is guided by the founding intention of Nano Nagle who believed in education for those socially or economically challenged.

In view of this founding intention the Special Education Needs Department mission is to enhance the teaching environment for the students involved. Working in partnership with parents and our guidance department, our SEN Core Team facilitates the meaningful inclusion of students with SEN.
