Guiding students to reach full potential via inclusive & personalised learning
The faculty at St. Andrews International School S107 champions the inclusive and personalised approach to learning. As a truly international school that is composed of students and teachers originating from over 40 different countries, personalised learning is particularly appropriate for the children within our small diverse and inclusive community.
In general personalised learning aims to customise learning specifically for each individual student. International educational reports into the teaching method assert that ‘personalised learning and support acknowledges that every learner has unique characteristics and individual learning differences that influence their school performance’.
Teaching staff at St. Andrews S107 always strive to provide the best opportunities for our students to flourish. We therefore implement individual learning plans to address what each child already knows about any particular subject, and then what teaching method helps that child learn the best. This approach is essentially about tailoring an education to meet the individual’s needs, interests and aptitude, and also a child’s learning preferences.
At St. Andrews S107 It is our experience that different students, in the same learning situation, will more often than not make sense of the learning process in completely different ways, as our students are all individual learners with specific needs.
““We believe that it is our warm community feel, alongside our relentless support for your children’s academic, social and personal growth, that makes us special. We strive to offer our learners the individual and personal support that will enable them to exceed their expectations in anything they choose to do”.”
The Leadership Team
St. Andrews S107 teachers are caring, professional and committed to an inclusive and personalised learning approach to educate the children in our care.
An inclusive and personalised approach to learning connects with our school’s principles and our Guiding Statement, which places emphasis on actively encouraging each student and promoting an ethos of caring, respect and tolerance of differences in abilities, needs, cultures and religions.
Steps to a personalised approach to learning
Assess: teachers will get to know each student, what they know about the subject, and how they learn
Plan: by collaborating with the student a plan is prepared for the student to follow
Evaluate: teachers will assess the effectiveness of the learning approach
Adjust: during the learning process the teacher will make adjustments to the plan to meet the student’s strengths and needs
