Saint Brigid’s National School, is a primary school situated in the centre of Greystones, Co. Wicklow. Our mission is to provide the highest quality education for all our children in a happy, safe and stimulating Christian environment, focusing on their academic, social, personal, moral and spiritual development to help them be the best they can be.

Learning Support

The staff in St Brigid’s aim to provide a curriculum that will enable each pupil to reach his/her potential. Classroom teachers assess and monitor the progress of the children in their care. Additional help, from a Learning Support Teacher is provided for children who fulfil certain criteria.

Children receive help from a Learning Support Teacher following consultation with parents and after parents have given their consent.

Learning Support teachers also team teach with class teachers and work in-class with groups. We find this particularly useful in the Junior classes with early maths and phonics and in the middle and senior classes in maths.

We are supported in our work by our wonderful Special Needs Assistants, who bring so much to our school and are worth their weight in gold.
