BIS can support a limited number of students with mild learning difficulties. Primary consideration in offering a place will be the student’s ability to achieve success in the regular curriculum with limited support. Places cannot be offered to students who need extensive programme modifications, an alternative curriculum, or constant support.
The school reserves the right (in consultation with parents) to conduct necessary assessments and obtain copies of all previous reports and records. Should it be unclear as to whether a student is capable of accessing the general curriculum with minimal support, a provisional place may be offered for six months to ascertain whether BIS can cater to the child’s learning needs.
All students entering the Learning Support Programme at BIS will be placed in the Support Services Referral Process. This is a collaborative process in which parents, teachers, the learning support staff and school principal participate. The full referral process is described in the document “Whole School Referral Process”, a copy of which is available on request.
