To date Lagan College’s Learning Support Department is led by the Head of Additional Educational Needs (senior teacher) alongside an Assistant Head of Department with a specialist responsibility for Special Exam Access Arrangements.
Due to the planned retirement of the Head of Additional Educational Needs at the end of August 2023, the department will be going through an exciting period of transformation and growth. The department is currently led by two leadership post holders, with plans by the Board of Governors to develop leadership opportunities further within the Learning Support Department next year.
The Learning Support Department is central to learning within our all-ability, integrated school community. It also serves to underpin the pastoral care and wellbeing of all our young people. As a school, we are fully committed to supporting each individual child to achieve their potential and remove barriers to learning for students of all abilities.
