The report commends the very high quality of teaching and learning observed; the kind, supportive student-centred learning environment; the reactive differentiation and scaffolding and high quality of assessment; the strength of teacher demonstrations and questioning techniques; the very thorough lesson preparation and planning, and the quality of the Health and Safety procedures in the classroom.

The design team will then begin the Stage 2B work which has as its stated objectives to:
As a community we are absolutely delighted with the news that our much needed extension has moved ahead to the next stage of planning. This represents a huge step forward for Lucan Community College, our students, teachers and parents in getting a school building to match the quality of our teaching and learning. We want to acknowledge the huge effort made by our pupils with their petition and also our Board members, parents and teachers with their individual letters to the Minister for Education and local representatives in getting the extension back on track. We also acknowledge the ongoing work of the DDLETB building team who are managing this process. We sincerely hope it now moves ahead at speed without any further delays.
As all members of our school community will be aware we have been awaiting the provision of a school extension and refurbishment for over ten years. We now need your support to move the school extension process forward. It appears that it is now delayed in the DES building unit awaiting approval to proceed to Stage 2B. So how can you help? Please print, address, sign and forward copies of the letters below through any means possible (mail, email, social media) and encourage other people to send them to as many people as possible on the contact list below and to anyone else who may be able to offer representation on our behalf. This is a really crucial time in the school extension process and everyone’s support is much needed at this time.

The Board of Management recently updated the school’s Substance Misuse Policy. Lucan Community College shows no tolerance of activities that would cause any member of the school community to feel threatened, alone, insignificant, victimised or unsafe in any way. To this end the college operates a Substance Misuse policy which was written and reviewed in consultation with the Parents’ Association, staff and representatives of An Garda Siochana. This policy is part of our overall Code of Behaviour.
