Child protection is of the upmost importance as it ensures the safety and well-being of their students. By prioritising child protection, schools not only fulfill their legal obligations but also create an atmosphere conducive for learning and overall development.
Learning Support plays a vital role in promoting inclusion at Nanjing International School and ensuring a tailored education for each student's unique needs. Our Learning Support Services system employs various strategies, including collaboration, co-teaching, push-in, and pull-out lessons, to assist students with diverse learning needs. LSS teachers collaborate with classroom teachers to customize programs, ensuring students receive the necessary accommodations and modifications. They offer targeted intervention programs as needed and facilitate referrals to professionals when necessary. LSS teachers also partner with specialists to arrange therapy and specialized programs from community professionals.
Our LSS team consists of four specialists who share the common goals of providing targeted student support, working with families on individualized learning plans, and collaborating with colleagues to support all learners effectively. This is achieved through the use of assessment data, cooperation with external service providers, and discussions with leadership, admissions, counseling, and English Language Learning colleagues.
The English Language Learning team is comprised of specialists who work throughout our school to providing targeted support for English language learners. In Primary, ELL teachers are integrated into classrooms, supporting English acquisition within the context of the regular learning environment.
