In Secondary school, we uphold the principles of a balanced education. Academic excellence is reflected in our philosophy of supporting and celebrating the diversity of learning needs within the Secondary school. We aspire to accommodate students with diverse learning needs to achieve their highest potential while celebrating their unique learning strengths and needs.
Our Secondary school Learning Support programme is designed to help students with mild learning difficulties advance in a mainstream school environment. The goal of the programme is to build students' self-awareness, confidence, and independent study habits so they can succeed in their studies.
Key support services are delivered via a combination of:
Educational Psychologist supports referred students through individual or small group meetings and discussions. At times it may include a facilitation model, where the psychologist works with homeroom teachers to provide accommodations and modifications necessary for students to access learning.
EAL support sessions are provided in English and focus on bridging any identified gaps in ability. The course will be individualised to address the specific needs of each student and will meet the child at their current ability. In addition, the curriculum for these sessions will be coordinated with the current core content curriculum being taught. The aim is to enable the child to transfer to the mainstream class.
Each class is assigned a homeroom teacher whose duties include such responsibilities as recording attendance, making announcements, communicating with parents, implementing PSHE curriculum, etc.
Secondary school co-curricular support programme is intended to provide both enrichment and core academic support to those students who meet or exceed the expected learning outcomes as well as experience difficulties accessing or keeping pace with the general curriculum.
