Meet The Inclusion Team

Inclusion Team

Laura Stokes

Head of Inclusion

As the Head of Inclusion at South View School, I am extremely proud of the progress that all our students have made this academic year. Progress is not just seen academically, but socially and emotionally, particularly during the pandemic. I am delighted to be part of an inclusive school where all students are treated as valued members of the school community.

The Inclusion Department is embarking on an exciting journey of growth for the next academic year, expanding our abilities to be able to provide a strong system of support for all students. This will include our English as an Additional Language provision and our Most Able, Gifted and Talented Provision. I am also extremely excited to support our newly appointed Whole School Counsellor as she establishes the school’s Counselling Department, a service that will be available for students, parents and staff.

I operate an ‘open door’ policy with everyone I work with and welcome parents to contact me directly if they ever have any concerns they wish to discuss.

My name is Danielle Mc Hugh and I’ve worked as a SENCo in Southview School for the past two years, previous to this I worked in both inclusion and mainstream school settings in Ireland. I am looking forward to working with a growing inclusion team next year and sharing best practices to continue and develop the learning provision at our school.


Gemma Kelly

Secondary School SENCo

My name is Gemma Kelly, and I am honoured to be Secondary SENCO at South View School. I am a passionate and experienced SENCO and have worked in Education for over 13 years specialising in the field of SEN for 9 years. I’m passionate about providing the very best opportunities for all students, allowing them to excel and creating the right environment for every student to thrive. I believe success cannot be measured on academic achievement alone and I am focused on ensuring students are provided with a differentiated and engaging provision, facilitating unique experiences that allow students to thrive and reach their full potential.


Katie Heather

EYFS Inclusion Teacher
I am excited to join the South View Inclusion team this year. I have been working within mainstream, inclusion and early intervention settings for over 15 years. I strive to motivate children to do their best in a stimulating and challenging environment ensuring children feel happy and excited to be at school. I have high expectations of their academic abilities ensuring they are all able to achieve their full potential.​ Early intervention plays a huge part in children’s development paths and I am honoured to be playing a part in that journey.
