Special Educational Needs

Vision & Aims

In Gaelscoil Thaobh na Coille our aim is to provide a comprehensive education through the medium of Irish that will cater for the individual needs of all our pupils and ensure that those pupils who have Special Learning Needs will be given support in a positive environment.

The aim of this policy is to ensure that certain practices are in place so that the school can do the following:

• To enable pupils with learning difficulties to participate in the full curriculum with appropriate modifications

• To implement a whole school approach in relation to teaching and learning for those pupils with Special Educational needs.

• To help parents make an informed decision when enrolling a child in our school.

• To enable children with special educational needs experience a broad and balanced education alongside their peers

• To develop systems of communications for parents of children with special educational needs.

• To ensure that our duties and obligations as set out in The Education Acy 1998 are fully met, to enable children with special needs to receive an education that is appropriate to their needs.
