This Forum is for Principals, Special Education Teachers and SENCOs working in primary schools.
This session aims to bring together a network of teachers working in special education in Clare Primary schools. The network aims to provide professional learning, support and networking opportunities for teachers. Margaret Egan will facilitate the establishment of the network and will support its development over time. The practical implementation of the network will be decided by its members and professional learning needs will also be identified by members. If you are a Principal, Special Education Teacher or SEN Co-Ordinator in a primary school in Clare and would like to find out more about the network, please join us.
