Over thirty schools across the city access these programmes which benefit 850 children annually. A report outlining these programmes and how they operate was launched today in St. Brendan’s National School, The Glen. The report highlights feedback from school staff and students which shows the importance of these programmes in retaining children in education and optimising their performance.

Tuesday, 9th April 2019 saw the launch of Cork City Partnership’s “Supporting Cork Schools Report” in St Brendan’s National School, The Glen. The Partnership has been supporting schools in Cork for 20 years. We believe that early supports and interventions in school will yield positive educational outcomes for children.
