Rochestown Community Special School

Rochestown Community Special School is a special school catering for pupils aged from 4-18 years with a diagnosis of Autism and/or Complex Needs.

We are run by the Department of Education and under the Patronage of Cork Education and Training Board.

“Community Special Schools are state, multidenominational, co-educational schools underpinned by the core value of Excellence in Education, Care, Equality, Respect and Community”

All students are given equal opportunity for enrollment in line with the Education (Admissions to School) Act 2018 and the criteria set out in the School’s Admissions Policy. Our schools promote a fully inclusive education that recognises the plurality of identities, beliefs and values held by students, parents/guardians and staff. Students of all religions and beliefs are treated equally. The school environment and activities do not privilege any group over another whilst at the same time acknowledging and facilitating students of all religions and beliefs.

Cork ETB Community Special Schools deliver the curriculum for Special Schools as prescribed by the Department of Education and adapted to meet the educational needs of each student. A variety of methodologies and strategies are adopted to maximise the students’ learning potential.
