Special Educational Needs (SEN)

The ISB is ‘non-selective’ and provides the support needed for children with a range of specific educational needs.

We have a Special Educational Needs (SEN) teacher who supports children, the class teachers and coordinates between external specialists and parents, as appropriate.

We are committed to providing a good education for all of our children. At the time of admission, please share as much information as you can about any special educational needs your child may have. Your child’s education and needs are of the utmost importance to us. By ensuring we have all the information at the admission stage, we are best placed to fully evaluate whether we can provide the right level of support for your child.

Able, Gifted and Talented
We acknowledge that some children are academically gifted or talented. These children often work above the standards expected for their chronological age group. We will identify early if your child displays such characteristics and we support the further development of their skills.

Our provision for able, gifted and talented children is multi-dimensional. Some children can be extended in their learning through class-based differentiation, while other children may be given the opportunity to work in extension groups where learning has a higher-level focus and a quicker pace. We are always happy to discuss this directly with you.

Speech Therapy
We work with a registered Dutch speech therapist provider who assesses our children’s needs. The speech therapist is fluent in English and Dutch and can provide speech therapy sessions for your child, with your permission, during the school day.
