Message from Special Education Support Team 

Parents, our Special Education Needs Team has been working on how best to support our pupils who need additional help. We realise that many children can find it hard to settle down to work at home. Please encourage your child to choose from the menu of work set by their class teacher. If help is needed or if alternative tasks need to be set, please do not hesitate to email one of our team – see our contact details below.
After Easter, on our school website we will have a weekly padlet of 3 simple tasks (maths, literacy and relaxation) for our pupils who receive support. Keep in mind that all activities your chid is doing at home (free play, lego, chores, baking, gardening etc) are forms of learning. Walks outside, chats with parents and reading together are the most valuable learning at a time like this. Wellbeing is our priority. We hope that you all stay safe and well at this difficult time.
Michele Farrell, Sara Loughran, Daire Smyth (Ms Farrell) (Ms Loughran) (Mr Smyth)
