Special Education

Gortnahoe NS prides itself on its holistic approach to Special education. Our aim is to help every child reach his/her potential. Through continuous assessment and observation, the needs of each child in the school is monitored and then the necessary interventions are organised and implemented by the Special Ed. Team. This may involve teaching in an individual or group situation or team teaching in the classroom with the class teacher.

Our Deputy Principal Múinteoir Ciara Lanigan is our SENCO ( Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator). If you have any concerns in relation to your child please feel free to contact Ciara or the class teacher for help and advice.
