Home / Curriculum / JCSP

JCSP is embedded within all our subjects at junior cycle. JCSP helps students build on their existing literacy and numeracy skills. A number of literacy and numeracy initiatives take place throughout the academic year to help improve numeracy and literacy. JCSP is offered to all class groups at Junior Cycle.

The Junior Certificate School Programme aims to provide a curriculum framework that assists schools and teachers in making the Junior Certificate more accessible to those young people who may leave school without formal qualifications. It attempts to help young people experience success and develop a positive self-image by providing a curriculum and assessment framework suitable to their needs. On completion of the programme students receive a profile which is an official record of their achievements from the Department of Education and Skills.

A number of initiatives take place each year including:

  • Drop Everything and Read (DEAR)
  • Paired Reading
  • Drama Workshops
  • Short Stories Workshop
  • MS Readathon 


JCSP Co-ordinators:  Mr. E. Maher
