Shared Education

Roddensvale School is fully active within the Larne Area Shared Education Partnership.  The schools involved in the partnership include:

  • Roddensvale School
  • Larne High School
  • Larne Grammar School
  • St Killian’s College

To date we have secured in excess of £120,000 from Antlantic Philanthropies.

Student Voice

We have established a shared Student Council who have developed the vision of the partnership:

Curriculum Development

Through extensive action planning we have secured funding to allow development of Shared Education in various curriculum areas alongside subject specialists from the other schools, including:

  • Religious Education
  • Physical Education
  • Geography
  • Learning for Life and Work

Makaton

One of the major successes of the partnership was in securing the funding to provide 3 staff from Roddensvale with Continuing Professional Development opportunities in Makaton.  We now have 2 Local Tutors and 1 Regional Tutor.  This has brought a new dimension to the partnership whereby pupils, staff and the wider school community can become more inclusive in how they work with young people with additional needs.
