For students with Learning Issues :
For students that would not be able to accomplish a GCSE because of learning difficulties the former Diocesan Christian Lifestyle Programme is no longer an option. Some might like to offer the Entry level Programme offered by Edexcel selecting the Roman Catholic Option and combine this with the Faith Award offered by the Archdiocese of Armagh “The Muireadhach Award “. This combination would offer these students a challenge and a very good personal experience of religious education at this stage in their schooling.
