Specialist provision

Page updated on: 05/11/2019

We are highly committed to inclusion and to educating as many of our children and young people within their local communities as possible. 

Whilst most of our pupils’ needs can be met in our mainstream schools, a range of special schools and specialist provision has been developed to educate pupils. These settings educate pupils with additional learning needs, social, emotional and behaviour development and physical needs as well as units for observation and assessment, communication and interaction and sensory needs where this proves challenging in mainstream classes.  In keeping with the commitment to inclusion, most of these settings are attached to mainstream schools. 

If it has been suggested by a professional that your child needs to attend a specialist setting and you wish to discuss this further and arrange a visit please email the relevant Family Liaison Officer:

A short term placement for children aged 3-7 years (Foundation Phase) with general or specific developmental delay, undergoing assessment.

For children whose speech, language and communication needs require a specialist setting; children have access to mainstream experiences and opportunities in the host school.
