The new model for supporting students with additional learning needs came into effect in September 2017.
Additional resources are allocated to schools based on the schools educational profile. The educational profile is made up of 3 parts;
- Number of students with complex additional learning needs
- Number of students with a Sten score of 4 or below in Maths and English
- Social context of the school including location and social background
Here at Delgany NS we have four SET teachers ( Special Education Teachers) one of whom is shared with Kilmacanouge N.S. where she works for 2.5 hours weekly. We are committed to meeting the needs of all our pupils and our SET teachers work closely with the class teachers to ensure that every child gets the best possible education suitable for their needs. However we must emphasise that support must be given to those children with the greatest need and that the number of teachers allocated to the school may change in the future as our profile changes.
If you have any questions about the new model please do not hesitate to get in touch.
