We are fortunate to have a very dynamic Special Education Team in Ennis National School. The Learning Support, Resource, Language Support teachers and Special Needs Assistants enhance, support, individualise and supplement our pupils classroom- based learning.
The Reading Class caters for 5th/6th class children in Clare who have a severe Specific Learning Difficulty/dyslexia. There are places for nine students in the class. Students work intensively on literacy and numeracy in the Reading Class, at a level that is appropriate to their needs, and using methods suitable for dyslexia. 5th and 6th class children with severe dyslexia from anywhere in Co. Clare may apply for a place in the Reading Class by writing to the principal, Ray McInerney, enclosing their psychological report.
There is ongoing close liaison, communication and support between staff throughout the school. In this way, we are able to utilise the strengths of a large staff team and enhance the quality of learning and teaching here at Ennis National School.
