Speech & Language Class

The Speech and Language classes became new additions to Castle Gardens Primary School in 2016, further strengthening the inclusive nature of our school. 

Relocating from Killard School in September 2016, the speech and language classes provides specialist teaching for pupils with speech and language as their special educational need within a mainstream setting. The objective is to create a caring, secure and happy environment where learning experiences can be maximised and where children can grow and develop intellectually, socially and emotionally.

Our provision seeks to improve the pupils’ skills in communication and social interaction and their awareness of appropriate behaviours. It also aims to increase their ability to work independently and every opportunity is taken to integrate the pupils into everyday school life and the mainstream curriculum. 

We have two speech classes - a Primary 1/2 class and a Primary 2/3 class - with a a maximum of 12 spaces in each class. The exact make up of classes varies from year to year depending on the profile of pupils allocated by the Education Authority following the process of statutory assessment.

Speech therapists located within our school provide several sessions per week for the pupils. These sessions vary depending on the individual needs of the children and include 1:1, small group and whole class.
