St. Aloysius Primary and Secondary Schools are inclusive, mixed-ability schools whilst in the Sixth Form a few students with learning difficulties are admitted under specific criteria if the environment is deemed as being conducive to their learning requirements.
The College strives to implement inclusive practice which is fully reflected in its mission statement where we strive to support our students develop into Men and Women for others, whilst supporting them into reaching their full potential not just academically but also as human beings.
The school provides a holistic education to a number of students with Special Educational Requirements through ensuring that each individual’s learning needs are met and different areas of learning are addressed. Whilst academic education is given priority other aspects of learning are also addressed. These include the continued development and refining of motor skills, communication skills, social skills, independent living and community skills and cultural skills.
Curricula are adapted to meet the learners’ requirements to ensure that each students’ potential is reached and students leave the school as well-prepared for future adult life as possible.
The introduction of Vocational subjects at secondary level and specialist lessons addressing life skills and employability skills, nature classes, cooking and independent living lessons, tutorials addressing organisation, time-management and study skills are ensuring that students are exposed to different opportunities to reach their objectives.
Inclusive practice is reflected in all activities within the college including AMDG Nights, Talent Nights and Soirees.
The College is introducing Universal Design for Learning practices both through its curricula and through the physical set up and environment of the three schools.
