At various times in their education a student may benefit from additional help or guidance. At NIS we provide support to students in a number of ways including help with any learning challenges. This often involves gathering additional information on the student’s learning needs, either through internal testing and feedback, or we may require families to have some external testing completed for more complex needs. The student’s progress is monitored carefully and support from the student services department is given to teachers to differentiate the class work to ensure the best possible outcomes and academic success.
Some students may also benefit from having additional adult support; again this could take a variety of forms, it could be an intern giving 1:1 direct support in the classroom, or a designated support assistant working with the student for some or all of their timetable. It could be as simple as a recommendation for some after school tutoring.
