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.
