Student Support

  • Inclusion

    St. Mary’s High School is committed to a policy of inclusion: one in which the teaching, learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of all children matter- including those identified as having special education needs, within the constraints of the school’s aims, its environment and entrance procedures.  In general, the school can support students with mild learning disabilities.

    The main aim is that every student with special education needs will reach their full potential in school and can make a successful transition to adulthood and the world of further and higher education training or work.


    An approved and  qualified school counsellor will be employed to ensure each student at St Mary’s School has the right to have their personal, social, educational and vocational development needs met. The Counselling Policy defines the categories of need and explains how these needs will be addressed.

    Career Guidance

    The school counselor will be responsible for coordinating the career guidance within the school. The Counselling Policy explains the opportunities that are available for students to receive careers advice and how to go about applying for higher education and pursuing other employment possibilities.
