We seek to ensure that all our pupils experience an engaging, inspiring and enjoyable time at School.
Belfast Royal Academy works to promote the inclusion of all pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN) through its policies and practice. The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) supports pupils with particular learning difficulties and is responsible for leading the team of Classroom Assistants who, in addition to working with individual pupils, provide an additional layer of pastoral support throughout the School. Every pupil on the SEN register is monitored carefully and information about their needs is shared with their teachers. Individual Education Plans (IEPs) are written annually for Statemented pupils to ensure appropriate targets are set. Staff also pass referrals regarding any pupils causing concern to the SENCo.
Our Learning Support Team contribute significantly to our School community, assisting pupils to develop their learning, independence, self-esteem and wellbeing.
