Students with Special Needs
The Gulf English School believes that all students should be able to follow our mainstream program. The term 'mild learning difficulties' is used to describe students with below average or above average intelligence. This is reflected in a slow rate of maturation, reduced learning capacity and inadequate social skills. Students with mild learning difficulties need to be able to participate in the major portion of the regular academic program. In certain instances students with mild learning difficulties may benefit from slightly modified approaches in the classroom, using a range of teaching styles and techniques. However, The Gulf English School does not have the resources to accommodate significant or multiple modifications.
Students demonstrating low achievement or extreme difficulty with mainstream work will be referred to the Student Support Team for evaluation. After an assessment has been completed the Student Support Team will make recommendations, in the best interest of the student, to the Head of School; who will consult with the parents concerning the recommendations of the Student Support Team. Academic probation procedures will also be followed.
Parents must provide all documentation concerning previous assessment, or any past history of learning difficulties, with their admissions application. Failure to disclose such information may result in a student being asked to withdraw from school. Should it be found that the Student Support Team recommends that a student be evaluated for either intelligence or learning difficulties, the parents are obliged to have the evaluation completed in a timely manner, and advice will be given on whom to contact for these evaluations. Financial responsibility for these tests will lie with the parents. Failure to do so could also result in the student being asked to withdraw from The Gulf English School.
Priority for admission into Pre-school
- GES gives priority to students from The Gulf English Nursery into Pre-school.
