Additional Educational Needs

Additional Educational Needs

Crumlin Integrated Primary School believes in early

intervention. If we believe a child is experiencing

learning difficulties or problems of any description,

we will consult with the parents at the earliest

opportunity to discuss ways of supporting a child both in school

and at home.

Children who require specialist individual attention

because of learning difficulties may be taught either

individually or in small groups for some periods each

week by our Additional Educational needs teachers.

Parents will receive copies of individual education plans for

their child and will be asked to support and review such plans.

 

 

Parents will receive copies of individual education plans for their child and will be asked to support and review such plans. A copy of the school’s

Special Educational Needs policy may be inspected by contacting the principal. The school is a designated MASTS school (multi-agency support

team for schools). The MASTS service consists of speech and language therapists, behaviour therapists, occupational therapists physiotherapists

and clinical psychologists. These professional work in partnership with staff and parents to improve the skills of children who have been

identified as having speech, language and communication needs; motor/sensory developmental needs; and social, emotional or behavioural

problems which effect their ability to learn and develop. In addition we have a very successful Reading Partnership Programme operating in

school. The School recognises that some children are very able in some aspects of the curriculum. Any child identified with an exceptional

ability will be nurtured and supported appropriately.
