Learning support and resource teaching is an integral part of Presentation Secondary School. It is provided by the Special Needs Team which comprises two learning support teachers, Ms Carol O'Shaughnessy and Mrs. Mary McInerney, and other committed and dedicated members of staff. Mrs. McInerney holds the position of Learning Support Coordinator.
Our learning support programme is provided on an individual or small group basis.
Specific programmes, timetables and a variety of educational resource materials are provided to meet the special needs and requirements of these students.
This programme has its own specially resourced classroom. The learning support programme works in tandem with the Junior Certificate Schools Programme (JCSP), School Completion Programme, and all subject teachers where appropriate.
Learning support in Presentation Secondary School is organised to be a fun, happy and secure experience to help pupils with learning difficulties to develop to their full potential. Those who would benefit from learning support are identified from their entrance test results and independent psychological reports.
An IEP (individual educational plan) is developed for some pupils. Teaching progresses with a multi-sensory and individualised approach to learning spelling, reading and writing. Additional help, if required, is available in mathematics and other subjects.
Application is made to the Department of Education on behalf of all SEN pupils for special arrangements in both the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate examinations.
