Moderate Learning Difficulty Unit

Provision for children with
Moderate Learning Difficulties

We have a specialised unit which provides for children who have been identified as having moderate learning difficulties, (MLD) by the Special Education Department of the South Eastern Education and Library Board. The children in this unit are enrolled as pupils of our school and are integrated into school life and into their year group classes, particularly in subject areas such as Art, Music, Drama and Physical Education. After intensive teaching programmes, these children should either be identified as being ready for reintegration into their own mainstream school or considered for some other special provision.

An MLD Outreach Support Teacher also operates from Towerview Primary School to help those children on the waiting list for unit placement.


If you would like to view our MLD unit, please make an appointment by contacting the office.
