In the school year 2015-16 we assisted children on the Special Educational Needs register at our school in a variety of ways including the purchase of specialist equipment, investing in additional training for all staff and purchasing specialist assistance from external agencies including the Educational Welfare Service and Educational Psychology. A proportion of the funding received is used for support Teaching Assistant salaries to ensure we are able to offer the best possible nurturing environment for the children in our school.

There are several policies that link to our work alongside children who have Special Educational Needs, these are attached below for you to peruse:
