Learning Support

In Drumragh Integrated College we promote a whole-school approach to improving access, participation and achievement for students with a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities. We want each child to feel both included and supported, aiming to foster his or her self-confidence and sense of belonging. We employ a variety of strategies to facilitate inclusion and to help students overcome barriers to learning.

Our framework for creating positive outcomes for students includes the following: Providing a safe, caring and supportive environment;

Making accurate, productive use of assessment information including outcomes of standardised testing;

Supporting effective teaching and learning in keeping with identified needs and, where relevant, in close collaboration with the College’s Literacy and Numeracy Co-ordinators;

Using further diagnostic testing where appropriate to implement tailored support programmes; Conducting on-going reviews of interventions and additional support;

Ensuring close tracking and rigorous monitoring of progress – linked into the whole-College Tracking and Monitoring system; Having high aspirations for all; and Promoting an ethos which embeds student independence.

Particular emphasis is placed on building working partnerships with parents to facilitate greater involvement in decision-making and support for their child’s learning. We also acknowledge the significance of multi-disciplinary provision and close links are maintained with external professionals. This involves liaison with educational psychologists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, hearing impairment specialists, behaviour support specialists, the Child and Adolescent Service, ASD Services, Social Services and the Inclusion & Diversity Service.
