Special Educational Needs

Lisnagarvey High School can cater for pupils who have special educational needs which can be addressed within mainstream schooling. Such needs may stem from one or more source: intellectual, academic, learning, social, emotional, behavioural, medical and physical sensory.

Under the direction of the Special Needs Co-ordinator all teachers have a responsibility for the teaching of pupils with special educational needs.

Pupils with special educational needs are placed on the Special Needs Register and will have an individual education plan, a copy of which is sent to parents.

Pupils whose ability is below average in English and Mathematics are taught in smaller classes. They follow the Northern Ireland Curriculum with the level of work tailored to their ability.

Pupils also have the opportunity to participate in Primary Movement. This is a programme of specific exercise designed to help with coordination and conditions such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autism and ADHD. Pupils who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs will have this reviewed annually.

Subject teachers can avail of the services of a support teacher or Classroom Assistant to work with pupils with special educational needs. Pupils may be withdrawn from class and given intensive reading tuition in a small group situation. For children with specific learning difficulties we avail of the services of staff from outside agencies.
