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.
We have established a shared Student Council who have developed the vision of the partnership:
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
- Learning for Life and Work
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.
