Student Services at BISR is a whole school department that encompasses Learning Support, English as an Additional Language (EAL) and Counselling. The Director of Student Services is responsible for provision coordination and the department’s main role is the provision of additional and specific support for students. Our students are our priority and we consider what is in their best interest when we make decisions about individual students.
All students must be competent English language speakers to gain admission to the school, but some children require short- term support as they settle in to English medium education.
All teachers at BISR have received training in the teaching of second language English speakers.
BISR support the teaching of a student's first language even if is not a language taught through the formal school curriculum.
