At GEMS World Academy Switzerland, we believe in providing the best possible conditions for all our students.
That’s why we have a dedicated team – our Inclusion department – ensuring every child has the same opportunities to shine in a variety of fields and make the most of their time with us.
In line with our core values, we respect each child’s individuality. All students are given full access to all areas of learning, and our teachers support them to reach their full potential, irrespective of race, age or ability.
The Inclusion department offers students further support in any area they need, using pull-out and push-in support, assistive technology and individual study sessions focused on work of the student’s choice. We also involve parents, where possible, in decisions about their child’s education for a fully inclusive team approach. Finally, we occasionally work alongside external agencies to implement appropriate support for a student’s needs in areas such as speech and language therapy and behavioural modification.
From the start, we have had a Director of Student Wellbeing leading a team of caring professionals that includes a full-time in-house Nurse, Wellbeing Counsellors and a Specific Learning Needs Coordinator.
