Breda Academy, Belfast

EAL and Inclusion


We are determined that all students, whether they are exceptionally gifted, have learning difficulties or other disabilities, should be full members of the school and benefit from the whole curriculum. Breda Academy warmly welcomes newcomer pupils from all cultures and countries and we proudly celebrate our multicultural status.  Additional support and attention is provided by the SEN and EAL Inclusion Team, in conjunction with classroom teachers throughout the curriculum.

The support given is tailored according to the individual needs of each student and is delivered in a variety of ways. Student progress is monitored carefully throughout their time here and we communicate with parents on a regular basis.

Breda Academy boasts a range of learning support rooms and dedicated SEN and Inclusion staff who specialize in providing support in literacy and numeracy and English as a second language. A specialist teacher is employed to support children with specific dyslexia issues.
