Our school has twenty four mainstream classes, a Reading Class and two special needs classes. There are three class groupings of approximately 27 pupils at each class level from Junior Infants to Sixth class. Class teachers are responsible for the children’s welfare and delivery of the curriculum. Work is planned jointly by the teachers at each class level. By drawing on their individual experiences, knowledge and expertise, class teachers at each class level ensure work is well matched to meet the needs of the children.
We have a very dynamic Special Education Team in Ennis National School. The Special Education Needs Teachers and the Special Needs Assistants enhance, support, individualise and supplement the learning that takes place in classrooms. Pupils who have special educational needs are identified by class teachers and additional support may be provided following consultation parents.
The Reading Class caters for 5th/6th class children in Co. Clare who have a specific Learning Difficulty/dyslexia. Pupils work intensively on literacy and numeracy in the Reading Class, using methods suitable for pupils with dyslexia.
