Enrolment of Children with Special Educational Needs

  • Parents/guardians of a child with special educational needs must supply all relevant reports on that child in a timely manner.

  • The school will co-operate with the parents/guardians and all relevant agencies to ensure that all the necessary supports are in place and provision made to cater for the child’s educational requirements.

  • It should be emphasised that it is to the child’s benefit that all relevant documentation in relation to that particular child’s needs be made available to the school at the earliest opportunity. Failure to do so may result in a delay in providing the appropriate supports for the child.

  • It will be at the school authority’s discretion to determine how to provide for a child’s needs until the appropriate supports are in place.
