St Andrews International School Bangkok prides itself on the fact that our teachers know their children very well. As a truly inclusive International School, the population of St Andrews school is made up of children with a wide range of needs. Some children in the Early Years and Primary School have limited English language exposure and, therefore, need support to access the UK curriculum. The role of the Learning Support teacher is to assess children’s areas of need and develop programmes that meet those needs. The Learning Support teacher plans lessons along with and in parallel to class teachers that reinforce the children’s in-class learning. This provision helps these students to access the curriculum and allows them to participate more in their education. The Learning Support teacher will be a specialist within the wider learning support team.

All teachers are also expected to contribute positively to the extra-curricular programme, which runs after school, offering an extracurricular activity that either supports or extends the students’ learning, or from another area of interest.

St Andrews is committed to ensuring the safety of all our students, and expects all staff to share the same commitment (see our Child Protection Code of Conduct). No teacher will be appointed without at least two references, including one from the most recent employer, a ten-year criminal record check and relevant regional Prohibition Order/DBS checks.
