CARING IS A JOINT EFFORT



DIFFERENT FORMS OF CARE

Because of our small scale, we have intensive contact with children and parents. A child has to feel good and feel at home at school. Sometimes, the teacher, the team or the parents are worried about the development of a child. This can concern learning, behavior or the social and emotional development of the student.

Every teacher has a group plan per subject, which contains the educational needs of all children. When a teacher notices that a student needs extra attention, he or she will take action. For instance, children can get extended instruction or rather extra challenging subject matter.
The care coordinator supervises the learning processes of students needing care that cannot be solved by the class teacher alone.

Besides adjustment of the study program in class, we sometimes also choose forms of care for which an additional teacher is engaged, such as for the Kangaroo Groups, for extra enrichment study programs, pre-teaching groups for extra stimulation of the Dutch language, re-teaching groups for more intensive instruction, “Bikkeltraining” to boost self-esteem and resilience. Input of external experts can also be advisable, such as a psychologist, speech therapist, behavioral specialist, etc. This always happens in consultation with the parents.
