Access to the Curriculum

The curriculum is seen as being a common curriculum for all the pupils of Edenderry Primary School and no pupil will be debarred from any part of it on the grounds of gender.

The school will consider the needs of all children when allocating resources.

Every effort will be made to provide maximum access to the curriculum to children who are physically handicapped and the school accepts its responsibility to attempt to develop the full potential of such children.

The pupils in the Learning Support Classes will be included in activities with the other pupils in a balanced way so that the maximum benefit from support class teaching and worthwhile inclusion is achieved.

Curriculum delivery

Parents may be aware that at present the Department of Education and the N I Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment are involved in a review of our educational system with a view to introducing changes which they hope will benefit both teachers and pupils alike.
