Junior Cycle

The former ‘Junior Certificate’ has been recently revised.

The Framework for Junior Cycle (2015) gave a much needed revamp of the Junior Cycle course that is far more student-centred than the previous course. This framework gives schools greater flexibility to design  programmes that are suited to the needs of their Junior Cycle students and to the particular context of the school.

 Our School Programme :

* is guided by the twenty-four statements of learning, eight principles and eight key skills that are at the core of the new Junior Cycle

* encompasses learning in subjects or a combination of subjects and short courses

 * includes an area of learning entitled Wellbeing

* provides a range of other learning experiences

* includes priority learning units (PLUs) that will help to provide a Junior Cycle programme that is appropriate to the needs of particular students with significant special educational needs.
