The School has specialist teachers in Art, Music, Physical Education, Science and Home Economics, who, as far as is possible, work with the class teacher to develop their themes. A block system is in operation with classes benefiting from the expertise of the specialists for several weeks each year.
Special Educational Needs
The Learning Support teachers support many children (of all ranges of ability) in language and number in a co-operative teaching situation within the classroom or in small groups in another area.
The Learning Support teachers also advise class teachers and provide suitable materials for use within the class. Parents are informed when their children are in need of support of a more specialised nature, whether on a short or long term basis. Opportunities to discuss these matters with the staff concerned are given to parents, in order that they are fully informed of the situation that has arisen.
