Knockevin Special School

Junior Department


At present, our Junior Department consists of five classes. We love being able to explore and experiment, and have many opportunities to do so.

We strongly believe that ‘together we can achieve more’ and this certainly applies to the holistic approach that is very apparent throughout all years in Knockevin. Class teams work together along with specialist teachers and therapy staff to ensure that our children are given the necessary provision and care to provide for their individual needs.


Learning and teaching across the department takes a topic based approach with schemes of work being developed for each curricular area. From the schemes of work, mid term planners are developed by each teacher to meet the specific needs of their class.


Children learn best when they are in a happy, positive and safe environment and our aim in the Junior Department is to ensure that all our pupils have fun learning together and can progress to the best of their ability.
