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.
