Tipperary Town & District School Completion Programme

The Tipperary Town & District school completion programme (SCP) is a targeted programme of support for children in both primary and post primary school who  have been identified as potentially at risk of early school leaving or who have poor  school attendance. We currently work with four local primary schools and one post primary school in the Tipperary Town area. Our SCP programme aims to provide support to students in a variety of different ways both during  and after the school day. Our hope is that both students and families alike will engage with  the SCP supports on offer which  make school life  that much easier and less stressful.

Our team is made up of

We offer support programmes which range from whole class engagement/ small groups / one to one work. These programmes work on areas and teach skills such as improving social & emotional literacy & expression, developing  the ability to communicate appropriately, developing effective strategies to cope and manage conflict, developing problem solving skills, learning empathy skills and improving general wellbeing.
