learning support at glenavon

what does this look like?

Students with additional and/or diverse learning needs are identified by classroom teachers either through anecdotal observations or CDA preparation.


These students are discussed at a team and/or management level and potential programmes are identified that may be of benefit to the student. Where possible students are put into these groups as soon as the need is identified.

These groups are facilitated by our trained teacher aides, learning support coordinator, SENCO and classroom teachers.These groups take place throughout the school day.


When required, referrals are made to outside agencies such as; Ministry of Education, RTLB and SWIS for extra support for students and teachers.
