Individual Education Programme
IEP’s are held during the first term. They are carried out by a team of professionals and parents.
Parents are also directly involved in the Educational Programme of their children. Individual Educational Programmes are held annually during the 1st school term. Students, parents and all those working with the child are present at the conference. Talks are also held during the year to inform the parents about the type of education their children are receiving. Contact books are provided by the school to keep contact with parents from day to day. Parents can make appointments to talk to the Head of School, or class teams, should the need arise. Parents are also involved in the Christmas Activities.
