At LICS we strive to give every child the opportunity to achieve the highest standards regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or background. We recognise that there is a diversity of needs including learning, health, physical, emotional, behavioural and social.
Student support is almost any service for students outside or beyond the curriculum and instruction in schools. The Student Success Services department at LICS aims to reduce barriers to learning and offers its differentiated services to a range of learners.
LICS receives learners from different educational backgrounds, some of whom may not have had exposure to the Cambridge curriculum. As such, learners may need smooth integration into the curriculum. We are on hand to assist children who have gaps in their learning to catch up so they succeed in their mainstream classes.
We offer an effective English as a Second Language (ESL) program for children whose first language is not English. Once children gain a comfortable level of competence, they are integrated back into their classroom where they attend first language English lessons alongside their peers.
Children excelling in their mainstream classes may need a challenge to push them further. The Student Success Services department is on hand to make this possible.
We offer targeted small group teaching in Literacy (Reading, Writing and Spelling) and Numeracy for children who have Specific Learning challenges such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia. We work closely with parents and teachers in supporting children on the department’s register as well as those being monitored closely.
As part of building holistic learners, we offer counselling services to learners who may need it in both Primary and Secondary school. In Secondary, the SSS team strives to build an integrated program with the Pastoral Care system at LICS to make sure we are supporting the whole-child in his learning journey and providing learners with academic as well as social and emotional skills.
Furthermore, in keeping with a comprehensive program to meet student needs we work closely with other professionals who conduct assessments and provide further insights and support to children on register. These professionals include, but are not limited to Psychologists, Speech therapists and Occupational therapists.
