Learning Support provides additional help to students in lessons and throughout the academic year. Our aim is to identify individual student needs, to deliver differentiated and specifically designed programme to help them achieve better results.
Learning support can be given in many ways:
- in-class support,
- after-class support,
- small group consulting hours,
- individual consulting hours,
- English Language Support (ELS).
Learning Support works on Individual Educational Plans which are designed to help students to overcome learning barriers.
In our school, we support our students in all ways. As the Oxbridge Academy team, we offer our qualified counselor who confidentially supports our students through one-to-one counselling. Moreover, our staff is also trained to support students not only in school but also outside.
Our aim is to help students to be individuals, and help them to work through their difficulties, understand themselves better and find the ways of managing their situation, offering them consultations with our counselor.
Psychological tests of the students are done with the aim of identifying the level of their cognitive development. Annual surveys are also done for the students to determine the dynamics of cognitive processes in them. The students are monitored during the classes and breaks. Additionally, there are consultation hours for the students, parents and members of the staff (teachers). Additional surveys are commissioned by the administration during the year. Staff members and students have some thematic courses and with that they also need to pass trainings and attend the seminars. The teachers, as all the staff members, need to pass psych diagnostic tests before being hired to work. Conducting psychological games, quizzes and contents for the students is also offered.
In addition, Counselling is not about giving advice or opinions, nor is it a friendly chat with a friend. The counsellor helps the students to understand themselves better and find their own solutions to resolve or cope with their situation.
Our doctor works full time at Oxbridge Academy. Her office is located on the first floor, on the left side of the corridor. It is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
If a student feels sick during the school day, the homeroom teacher sends him/her to the doctor’s office where the doctor checks and decides to, either, return him/her to class, or send them home. Afterwards, the doctor informs the homeroom teacher if she is sending the student home, and the homeroom teacher informs the parents and the administration about the situation.
