Our learning support programmes
At Nord Anglia International School Manila, we consider each student on an individual basis. If the school believes that Learning Support is necessary as a condition to accept the student, the admissions team, in collaboration with the LS Coordinator, may request for further assessment information, may interview the parent and/or the student, and may contact the previous school. Other people involved in the admissions process also include the School Principal, Head of Secondary, Head of Primary, Heads of Department as necessary.
Special educational needs and disability paperwork such as assessment reports, school reports, recent and previous individual education plans or learning plans (IEPs/LPs), are passed on to the admissions team by the parents as soon as possible or available. NAIS Manila uses this shared information to determine if the current program will meet the student’s needs and to decide which particular LS stage and pathway the student will be placed under as part of the acceptance into NAIS Manila.
In addition to this, if the student’s first language is not English and has or might have challenges in the speaking, listening, reading or writing in English as well as accessing the curriculum, which is taught in the English language, the EAL teacher should be notified by Admissions to determine eligibility of support upon entry.
