We are so excited to welcome you to the Clever Clogs classroom. You will find that we are a wonderful class of five students aged between 12 and 18 years with many exciting talents and strengths. Coming to school is really exciting for us, we love to learn and spend time with our friends.

The Junior Cycle Level 1 Learning Programme is implemented in our classroom. The curriculum is differentiated according to the individual holistic and learning needs of each student.

Our subject areas include:

  • Communication, Language and Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Personal Care and Wellbeing
  • Being Part of a Community

  • Physical Education

In addition to the above subject areas, we participate in so many vibrant extra-curricular activities all year long including: Learn to Cycle, Gymnastics Programme, Athletics Programme, Home Economics Sessions, BLAST – Arts in Education, Music Therapy, Dance Sessions and so much more!

At the beginning of each academic year, an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) is created by the class teacher in collaboration with parents/guardians and outside professionals.

The Total Communication approach is utilised to promote and enhance our communication skills every day in school. Our classroom staff use vocalisations, photographs, symbols, Lámh, choice boards and communication boards when reinforcing our communication skills.

Functional living skills are central to the classrooms routines and tasks. Students are given ample opportunities to practice skills of daily living through teacher designed activities and social trips to the local village of Delvin. Here in the Clever Clogs class, we work towards independence at every opportunity.

The class Tuck Shop is a popular feature on our Friday timetable. Here, the students are afforded the opportunity to be in role as both shop keeper and customer, reinforcing a wealth of numeracy, language and social skills. Nobody ever forgets their wallet on a Friday!! Keep an eye on this page and we will update you on our sensational and delightful learning journey.
