Student Support Services
Our Student Support Services aim to ensure all children develop their full potential through appropriate support, collaboration, commitment and communication among teachers, other related professionals, and parents. We promote the successful inclusion of all children whilst meeting their individual needs through a personalized approach to learning.
It is ISSP’s belief that all children have the right to receive quality education by capitalizing on individual strengths. We recognize and respect individual differences and uniqueness, and take responsibility in providing skilled and sensitive teaching and support so that children with different learning styles, abilities and skills can find individual paths to success and fulfillment.
Together, the Student Support Services department along with teachers and parents employ a variety of strategies relevant to their area;
In an international environment, EAL plays an important role in welcoming and supporting children from a wide variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds to our school. Our EAL department supports language learners in the most inclusive way possible, so that all may access the curriculum and take an active part in all aspects of our school life. Our approach guarantees consistency and the progress of each language learner is continuously monitored.
Our EAL program uses the WIDA Model assessment and Six Stages of Second-Language Acquisition to determine the level of support, if any, a child will receive.
The Early Years and Elementary years are fundamental in a child’s welfare and well-being. Our counselling services advocates the social and emotional development of students in promoting a positive environment and outlook. The counselor works with key personnel in ensuring resources are available to students so their personal and academic potential is achieved.
Our SEN program is designed to help children with special needs to learn effectively in class. The departments, together with the teacher and upon approval of parents, will create an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) to set goals in line with curriculum standards. Children may be referred to the SEN program at any stage of their learning, whether it be during the Admissions process or whilst enrolled if there is an identified need.
