Special Education Needs in Greenlanes National School

The Special Education Needs team in Greenlanes National School currently comprises of three permanent based teachers (Aidan O'Shea, Miriam Brennan and Dermot Moynihan). All three SEN teachers are fully qualified in the area of SEN. Each teacher has completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Learning Support and Special Education Needs. We also have three Special Needs Assistants working in the school, Sandra Sargent, Paula Chaney and Lynn Boyle. 

We are fully committed to the principle of inclusion and the good practice which makes it possible. Our policy aims to enable children with Special Education Needs and children whose first language is not English, to become fully integrated members of our school community. This will be achieved by careful consideration of the needs of each child and by either modifying activities or by providing support that will help the child to participate in them.

We aim to give every child the opportunity to experience success in learning and to achieve as high a standard as possible.

We take into account the different backgrounds, experiences, interests and strengths that influence the way in which children learn when we plan our approaches to teaching and learning.

We recognise that a minority of children will have particular learning and assessment requirements that will create barriers to learning if we do not address them through special arrangements.
