Welcome to Fleming Fulton School for caring education – meeting life’s challenge in a special way
At Fleming Fulton our mission is to provide first class education, therapy, medical support and care to help disabled young people lead a fulfilling and enjoyable life
Fleming Fulton is a BELB controlled co-educational school for children with physical disabilities.
The school serves pupils between the ages of 2 and 19 years from the whole of Northern Ireland. Pupils are admitted following consultation with parents and educational and medical assessment by their own education and health boards.
A coordinated educational and therapeutic programme is provided by a multi disciplinary team of teachers, support staff and therapy personnel.
The school includes a nursery pre-school assessment unit, a primary and a secondary department. Children normally enter the nursery in the year following their second birthday and remain for a period of two years. At the end of this period recommendations are made regarding admission to P1 in a mainstream school, Fleming Fulton or other special school.
The school provides the full ‘Revised Curriculum for Northern Ireland’. Pupils move through the primary and secondary schools according to the school’s promotion policy. Pupils’ progress is monitored through continuous assessment with appropriate external accreditation at key stages 2, 3 and 4. Pupils may attend the school for 3 further years following the statutory learning age of 16 years.
In addition, through its LILAC project the school provides outreach support for disabled children attending mainstream schools.
Fleming Fulton has a strong tradition of curriculum development and is an ICT BECTA accredited school for its excellence in using ICT. It has international links with schools through the ‘Comenius’ and ‘Connecting Classrooms’ programmes.
The staff consists of a principal, 2 vice principals, 29 full time teachers and 6 part time teachers, 25 classroom assistants and 19 general or technical assistants. In addition the school has physiotherapist, occupational and speech and language therapy departments and medical support.
Striving for excellence is at the core of the school – in the examinations results achieved; in the range of prizes won by pupils such as the Rolls Royce Science prize or the Bombardier Aerospace award; in the Teaching Awards successes; or in a range of externally assessed standards such as Investors In People, National Training Awards, Chartermark, or the ET Excellence award.
