Broad General Education

The ASN Department supports pupils in S1 – S3 with the emphasis being on Numeracy and Literacy. Classes are supported by ASN Teachers as well as Pupil Support Assistants. Support staff ensure that pupils are equipped, on task and following instructions from the class teachers. Pupils may also work in the Department where they will be supported with homework tasks and class work. Technology will be introduced as a tool to help with reading, writing and recording work and these methods will be used in assessment situations as pupils progress through school.

Senior Phase

Pupils in the Senior Phase of school will be supported by ASN as before but as assessments become an integral part of their curriculum, important decision are made. Additional Assessment Arrangements are made for pupils who have identified needs. This is a rigorous procedure which involves input from parent/carers, teachers, outside agencies and the pupils themselves. With this support all pupils are able to present themselves for examinations positively and with confidence.
