Educational support for children with learning difficulties of different forms and levels is in place at the European School. For generic information about the different level of support provided at school please visit the school’s web site here and here.

Learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADA/H, high potential, are not always well known. The right to ensure an inclusive education of these pupils is a priority for the PA as well as the school. The PA, alongside the school, actively supports families of such children to help ensure the learning environment is adapted to better address special needs.

In 2017/2018 the ESF PA established, in cooperation with the school, a “tripartite agreement” for children with an official diagnosis from a qualified medical professional. This agreement between the school, parents, and a third-party therapist allows outside support personnel to work outside school hours on campus alongside the child.
In this context, the PA also participates in the Educational Support committee. This committee addresses specifically issues surrounding the well being of special needs students. Conferences, trainings and other initiatives for parents, teachers and students are proposed as well in this forum. Attendees includes school directors, PA Board members representatives and the support teachers coordinators.
