Guidelines for children with special needs.
Within our School, we always have children, who, for one reason or another, do not fit into the Curriculum set out for the majority of our pupils.
“Learning difficulty” the term used throughout the 1989 Education Act, for a child with special educational needs is defined as follows:-
1) Has significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of his/her age.
2) Has a disability which either prevents or hinders him/her from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided in School.
In order to work effectively the Infant Teachers try to build on the language and skills which the children possess, and Parents are encouraged to work closely with the Class Teacher if there is any problems.
