The underlying policy of the Home, School, Community Liaison Scheme, (HSCL) is one that seeks to promote partnership between parents and teachers. The purpose of this partnership is to enhance pupils’ learning opportunities and to promote their retention in the education system. In addition, the HSCL Scheme places great emphasis on collaboration with the local community. It fosters a sense of trust between the students, the parents and the school.

The five goals of the HSCL Scheme focus on

• promoting co-operation between home, school, and community

• empowering parents

• retaining young people in the education system

• supporting marginalised pupils

• disseminating best practice.

Seamus Roche is the HSCL Coordinator in Largy College. Seamus is available to meet with parents to discuss matters of concern which may be impacting on their children’s education. He is available to meet with parents both in the school or in the home

The aim of the HSCL Coordinator is to develop and maintain a positive parent/school relationship, to make our school more accessible to all parents/guardians and, in general, to promote the well-being of the school’s students.

The HSCL Coordinator is a key member of the school’s Pastoral Care Team, where he works closely with the Principal, Deputy Principal, Year Heads, Chaplain, Guidance Counsellors, SEN Coordinator and School Completion Team, in supporting the welfare of the students of the school.

The HSCL Coordinator plays a pivotal role in supporting students and their families through many difficult and challenging situations, up to and including situations requiring the implementation of the school’s Critical Incident Policy.

As well as working closely with the Primary schools in order to ensure a smooth transition to Post Primary, the HSCL has built strong links with other agencies which support young people and their families. These include statutory, voluntary and community groups such as the I.S.P.C.C, Tusla, Foroige, S.V.P, Clones Family Resource Centre Youth Work Ireland and many others. In this way we seek to work collaboratively in order to best meet the needs of all of our students
