Inclusion and Diversity Service

The IDS is a regional service for Northern Ireland. We provide advice and support to schools regarding provision for ‘Newcomer’* pupils.

*The term ‘newcomer’ pupil is used to refer to a pupil who has enrolled in a school but who does not have satisfactory language skills to participate fully in the school curriculum and does not have a language in common with the teacher.

We provide support for schools in the form of Pre-school , Primary, Post-Primary and Special Toolkits.
