New Junior Cycle

 

New-Junior--Cycle-logos

Cluny has been selected as one of 48 network schools to explore elements of the new Junior Certificate Exam. Staff and students are busily engaged in examining elements and exploring key skills in teaching and learning in preparation for New Junior Certificate in 2014.

Curriculum

For the junior cycle student, the new junior cycle will mean that the curriculum available in their schools will be a mix of subjects and short courses.

From 2014, the new junior cycle will feature newly developed subjects and short courses, a focus on literacy, numeracy and key skills, and new approaches of assessment and reporting. Schools will have more freedom to design programmes that meet the learning needs of all students. Follow the change as it happens on this website.

For a small group of students with special educational needs, priority learning units (PLUs) will be provided. These components will enable the statements of learning, literacy and numeracy and other key skills to be become a reality for the students throughout their three-year junior cycle.
