KSI believes each child is unique and encourages students to achieve their learning potential. New students are assessed on entry and those requiring additional learning support are identified and appropriate structures put in place.
Parents will be informed if their child requires additional support and it is important that they trust the school’s judgement as decisions about support or extension are always made in the best interests of the child. Teachers attempt to preserve a pupil's self-esteem by responding to a specific learning difficulty in terms of enhancement rather than remedy. Teacher expectations and a pupil's own self-confidence are very important parts of the learning process and concentrating on the positive aspect attempts to preserve this.
KSI Bogota supports children with learning & behavioural difficulties, through a partnership with The Learning & Psychology Centre (The LPC). The Learning & Psychology Centre is led by prominent psychologist, Annie de Acevedo, and a team of specialists who work together to offer a range of student intervention services and programmes, centered around Social & Emotional Wellbeing, and Language Learning & Cognition including:
