Specialist Open Morning at the Early Years and Infant Campus

Transparency – at BIS HCMC, we want our parent community to see what is happening in the classrooms and have the opportunity to ask about anything that we do.  It is by doing this that we have built up the levels of trust and support between home and school.



It was wonderful to see over 150 parents join us for our Specialist Open Classrooms event on Thursday morning at the Early Years and Infant Campus.  Following a short presentation from our specialist leaders, parents had the freedom to visit classes and see the specialist lessons taking place and find out more about what our specialist teachers do.

At BIS, we have two types of specialist teachers; subject specialists and support specialists.  What is the difference?

Subject Specialists

Subject specialists teach the whole class a specific area of the curriculum where they have a higher level of expertise. In primary (EY&I and Juniors), our subject specialists teach physical education (PE), music, information and communication technology (ICT), modern foreign languages (MFL) and library skills.

Support Specialists

Support specialists work with small groups of children or individuals who need additional support in a particular area.  Our English as an Additional Language (EAL) teachers teach children who join BIS without the level of English to fully access the curriculum. The remit of our Learning Support (LS) teachers is much wider, giving a boost to children who may have joined the school and have gaps in their learning, or helping those who may be having a particular difficulty in a certain area of the curriculum.

All the specialist teachers, who teach at the Early Years and Infant Campus, were in the lessons, providing a great opportunity to ask questions and find out more about our approach to teaching music, physical education (PE), information and communications technology (ICT), modern foreign languages (MFL) and library. Our support specialists were on hand to share some of the resources they use with the children and to answer any questions about their roles.

Thank you to everyone who attended on Thursday; it was super to hear such positive feedback from parents and teachers alike.
