Education For All
The International School of Moscow is committed to providing an appropriate and high-quality education for all of our students. We believe that all young people, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, have an entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum, which is accessible to them. All children, where possible, should be fully included in all aspects of school life.
It is essential that each individual child feels welcome and valued. Therefore, inclusion is always evident in the general ethos of our school. Everyone involved in our school’s life aims to have and encourage:
- high expectations for all
- a feeling of self-worth and self-confidence
- positive, equal images
- role models from all groups in society
We regularly observe, assess and record the progress of all our students in order to identify learners who are not making satisfactory progress and who may have additional needs.
All children new to our school are assessed to establish their current level of need. If needs are highlighted, then the SENDCO (Student Support Services) teacher will,
with the support of the respective teachers, devise a programme to suit each individual. Based upon observations, assessment data and following a discussion with parents / carers the student may be recorded as needing either:
- differentiated support within the class
- additional support through SEND support
- withdrawn support from lessons
