In order to facilitate and encourage the holistic development of our students, the Educational Support Unit (ESU) in the College offers academic, social, emotional, and behavioural support to all College students.
An Educational Psychologist, a Psychologist intern and a Learning Support Therapist are available to consult with students on a one-to-one basis, as well as in small group formats where peer support and learning is encouraged. The ESU encourages students to take responsibility and ownership of their wellbeing by requesting support for themselves when necessary. Parents, teachers, and other professionals involved in caring for students are also encouraged to refer students to the ESU when additional support is required.
Please note that the IEB has a very clear policy regarding the psychometric battery of tests which should be utilised when conducting this particular type of assessment. It is also important to bear in mind that an assessment does not necessarily lead to an application, nor does it guarantee the granting of an accommodation. The IEB’s independent review panel (and not the school) makes the final decision as to whether or not a student is granted an examination accommodation. (Please contact the ESU for more information in this regard).
