Student Support

 

Aim:

  • Develop a whole-school approach policy that supports students with individual differences and special learning needs.
  • Identify students with “special learning needs” early and provide appropriate counselling and assistance.
  • Provide equal learning opportunities for students with “special learning needs”, so that they can learn together with other students and continuously improve and enhance themselves.
  • Make reasonable adjustments in learning, teaching, and assessment for students with “special learning needs” so that they can obtain their learning goals.

 

Role:

Our school adopts the "Whole-School approach" to take care of students with different learning needs.  The school has established a "Student Support Team" and formulated a school-based support policy to implement early identification and specific support projects.  The school regularly organizes workshops/teachers talk for teachers to recognize and assist students with different needs.

 

Program Details”

  • Bridging Program

Students and parents may get to know the new school early.  This helps parents plan how to help their children to adjust and adopt to the life of Primary one, and to understand the different learning methods and routines of primary school and kindergarten, helping students and parents understand and overcome the anxieties and struggles in this moment of change.  This builds up a close contact and cooperative relationship between parents, teachers, and school.

 

  • "Early Identification of Students with Learning Difficulties Program"

Schools implement the Education Bureau’s “Early Identification and Guidance of Primary One Students with Learning Difficulties” plan on time.  The establishment of “Student Support Teams” identifies students in need of support, formulates student lists and support record sheets, and adopts the “whole school participation model” for care of different learning needs of students and systematic learning support is provided.

 

  • Speech therapy and Educational psychologist

Early identification and counselling of students with speech impairments can help improve their expressive skills and enable them to learn more effectively in the classroom. To this end, the school has a speech therapy service. The in-school speech therapist provides professional assessment, guidance and training for individual students in need.  But also provides appropriate topic sharing for all students, parents and teachers in the school, such as holding student seminars and parent seminars. Secondly, speech therapists provide classroom speaking skills training for individual grade students to improve students' speaking skills and verbal communication skills.

 

  • School-based Educational Psychology service strengthens the support and enhances the capacity of schools to cater for students’ diverse educational needs. The psychologist assists the school in promoting preventive and developmental work, and provide comprehensive and regular case follow-up and intervention services.

 

  • Student learning support groups

Organize small group services from internal and external resources for students with different learning needs, such as after-school school-based learning support programs, homework support groups, and in-class companion study support.
