About listInclusion Department

The Inclusion Department blends its  expertise in academic, social, emotional and behavioural skills to work with  students and to ensure that the individual needs of all students are met.

We  want all our students to access the school curriculum and have the opportunity  to fulfill their potential. We also want all our students to appreciate and  understand difference and diversity and that our school community of learners  reflects the society that we all live in.

Our  programmes promote Inclusion by supporting individuals, small groups, whole  classes and also whole school initiatives.

 

SEN (Special Educational Needs)

Working  in collaboration with teachers, students, parents and sometimes external agencies, the Learning Support Teachers create an action plan with specific targets to meet a diverse range of student needs which includes high achieving  students. These individual Student Support Plans are then reviewed and updated  on a regular basis.

EAL (English as an Additional Language)

EAL  programmes are designed to support those students who arrive with little or no English skills. Students may be withdrawn from class on a 1:1 or small group  basis to work on specific English tasks. Students are then integrated back into the classroom with EAL teachers also providing in-class support.
