Learning Support

At St. Muredach's we have a Special Educational Needs department to cater for the needs of each individual child.

All of our teachers adapt their teaching to accommodate all students' learning styles, thereby ensuring students perform to the best of their ability. We provide structure and support to students with SEN.
