Liaising with Teachers

If you need to speak to Ms. Ward or your child’s class teacher, please ring or email Sandra who will arrange an appointment. 

Educational Assessment

An Educational Psychologist is available annually to carry out Educational Assessments on children who we believe are not making reasonable progress. Parents are consulted and permission is always sought before this is done. 

Special Education Needs

Should your child have Special Education Needs he/she may qualify for daily support and extra help from our Special Education teachers.

Learning Support

The school has the services of a fully qualified Learning Support Teacher. Early identification of learning difficulties is crucial in their remediation. All children are regularly screened through the administration of standardised and observational tests. Parental consultation and support is a vital aspect of our learning support programme.

We hope your child’s years spent in Nun’s Cross School will be extremely happy and will help him/her to grow in all that is positive and good.
