SEN (Special Educational Needs) in Loreto College Foxrock

We value and respect each student and seek to educate all irrespective of ability, in an open learning environment.  We understand excellence in relation to each girl’s potential.  A student may access support by referring herself or through parent and or teacher referrals.  We welcome engagement with the student and help students to identify their strengths as learners.  Support may take the form of individual or group learning support or resource teaching, in class teaching support, curricular support in a particular subject area, SNA access, assistive technology, examinations support etc.  We understand that a multi-disciplinary approach works best to enable each student to reach her learning potential.                                                                                                                 

‘Learning through experience.’
