How Scoil Áine works

Scoil Áine accepts primary and post primary students for a period of placement from their school while they are under the care of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). Our four classrooms have a maximum of 6 students per class.

We have a highly motivated and dedicated staff of 4 teachers, 4 special needs assistants and 3 social care staff. We work together in a carefully structured way to create a secure, happy and therapeutic learning environment.

Our aim is to give each student the opportunity to grow emotionally, socially and academically, to cope with, and overcome, individual difficulties identified by the CAMHS team and to do this at the student’s individual pace.

We tailor the relevant Department of Education and Skills (DES) Primary and Post Primary curricula for each student based on their individual strengths and challenges.

Confidentiality is integral to the daily workings of Scoil Áine.

Scoil Áine is a non-denominational school with a fully constituted Board of Management under Diocesan patronage.
