The Visiting Teacher will assess all new applications and may also seek opinions from psychologists and other professional personnel. Ideally children will enrol on September 1st. However, if need arises and subject to a place being available, applications for admission will be considered at other times during the school year.
Applications for admission will be considered by the school principal, class teacher, visiting teacher of the deaf and one member of the Board of Management.
Others may be co-opted if it is considered necessary.
In line with school policy, each child will integrate with mainstream classes where possible. This may be partially for non-academic subjects such as PE, Art. Other children may integrate for academic subjects. Integration is dependent on close cooperation and collaboration of whole school staff and is kept under constant review.
