We understand that you want the best for your child. So do we. Understandably, one of the key concerns for parents considering moving their child during the academic year is the disruption to learning – will my child miss topics from the curriculum, are you able to meet their learning needs, how will I know if they begin to struggle? We are committed to helping your child realise their educational ambitions. Our thorough and robust approach to academic transition will ensure your child has the best possible start at our school, no matter when they join.
“We understand that moving schools is a big event for children and their families,” said Paul Holyome, Principal at The British School Yangon. “We look forward to welcoming your family to our school. I know you will find our school to be extremely welcoming, friendly and caring towards every child. Our senior leadership team will always be more than happy to talk with you about any concerns you might have.”
At The British School Yangon, we personalise each child’s transition, ensuring each child receives the right academic and social support to help them settle quickly and minimise interruptions to their learning.
Understanding your child’s academic needs
Our admissions process includes meetings, assessments and reports to enable us to create a detailed picture of your child’s academic ability and ensure we are able to meet their learning needs. We will ask you to provide previous school reports and your child will undertake admission assessments tailored to their age group and, where possible, meet with a member of our academic team.
We are committed to fully supporting your child and encourage you to share a variety of information with us – how does your child learn, what do they enjoy doing in school, what do they find challenging? This information is invaluable for our teachers and enables them to start building a relationship with your child. It enables us to support your child’s accelerated learning from day one by allowing our teachers to personalise learning immediately, ensure any support systems required are in place, such as intensive language classes or special educational needs support, and create opportunities which make them feel comfortable in their new class as quickly as possible.
