Support and guidance PYP
ISD is an inclusive school intended to serve the whole of the international community in Delft. As such a school, we strive to meet the educational needs of all students. Students with specific educational, physical, emotional or social needs will always be considered for our school. The school collaborates with specialist therapists to meet a range of specific needs; however, these services could be at additional costs to parents.
ISD has a Student Care Department that can offer the following services, depending on the needs of the student:
- in-class support by the class teacher through accommodation of the programme;
- in-class support by a member of the Student Care Department;
- pull-out support by a member of the Student Care Department;
- meetings with the Student Care Department member responsible for pastoral care;
- support by external specialists through the external support network
The primary department of ISD is part of Samenwerkingsverband Passend Primair Onderwijs Delflanden (PPO Delflanden). Its procedure has to be followed if ISD itself cannot fulfil the requirements for a child with special educational needs.
Teachers offer guidance
All teachers, in accordance with our Behaviour Policy and our belief on PSPE (Personal, Social and Physical Education), take on the role of counsellor and offer student guidance as and when needed. This is especially so in the case of class teachers who play a vital role in the personal and social development of the students under their care. The school is also able to call on external support services to support students in the school when needed.
We find communication between you and our school very important. Our goal is to get you involved in all activities as much as possible. The Social Schools platform enables us to inform you directly and safely through mobile or web app, by email and/or by push notifications.
