Castlederg High School
A High Performing, Non-Selective, Post Primary School
Dyslexic Friendly School
All staff provide a Dyslexic Friendly Classroom by using various strategies in their teaching to ensure learning takes place for all pupils. These strategies help remove barriers to learning for all pupils so that they are working to the best of their ability across the curriculum.
Literacy and Numeracy Support
We have Literacy and Numeracy after school clubs administered in partnership with the Literacy/Numeracy Co-ordinators. Furthermore if necessary pupils can receive individual support in these areas for a period of time if necessary.
We offer Reading Partnership within school, which is one to one reading support with a Learning Support Assistant for one period per week throughout the school year.
In Class Support
Where appropriate, pupils are supported in their learning through in class support provided by our highly committed Learning Support Assistants. This is provided in a discrete manner to ensure inclusion for all pupils.
All teachers will differentiate work for individual pupils were necessary within their streamed classes.
Achievement for all pupils is actively promoted in Castlederg High School according to the ethos of inclusion. We do this by providing additional support to those pupils who require it, to ensure they too reach their full potential across all subject areas. Our staff strive to ensure that all pupils have a positive learning experience in all aspects of school life.
