Special Educational Needs

Clonturk Community College welcomes applications from students with special educational needs (SEN). The application process for a pupil with special educational needs will be the same as that of any other applicant. However, in order to assess the needs of an SEN student, the school authorities will meet with the parents/guardians to discuss the pupil’s needs and the school’s ability to meet those needs. A copy of the student’s educational, medical, or where appropriate psychological reports will be requested prior to enrolment. Clonturk Community College will strive to ensure that an education appropriate to their needs is provided for pupils with special educational needs and will seek to:

 

  • Identify the needs of pupils in advance
  • Acquire the necessary resources
  • Do all that is reasonable to accommodate the needs of a person with a disability by providing special treatment or facilities if required

 

If special resources are required, it may be necessary to defer enrolment until these are provided by the Department of Education and Skills, or other statutory body as appropriate.
