Children with special needs

Children with special needs (both physical and mental) are welcome and encouraged to take part in classes. Children with special needs should try to book as soon as possible and on booking should make the Joe Mooney School aware of their needs. The school is committed to try and make every endeavour to accommodate their needs but unfortunately in some cases this may not be possible due to the fact that the Joe Mooney School does not own the class rooms it uses.

Our guest traditional music teachers are leaders/experts in their disciplines, but they have no specific training in being able to identify the needs or accommodate the needs of children with special needs.  It is for this reason that children with special needs are required to be accompanied by an adult during the class so that they can get the most from the class in a secure and friendly environment.
