We, at Ballycahill NS, endeavour to provide an inclusive learning environment where all pupils feel welcomed, valued and are engaged in the life of the school. The area of Special Educational Teaching is where we cater those children who may require some extra support. The level and nature of support reflects the specific needs of pupils and the regular monitoring and reviewing of progress informs our decisions when planning to provide support.

As well as catering for children’s specific needs the SET provides support in the areas of early intervention and in the prevention of difficulties in challenging areas of the curriculum. Here, team teaching or small group intervention can be used to give the children in our school the best chance at mastering the skills they need most.shutterstock_116955382
