The Learning Support Department provides academic support to students who require additional intervention. This enables them to access the mainstream curriculum and reach their full potential.
DBGS does not have a Special Education Department. Therefore, it does not provide services for students who need considerable academic support.
The Learning Support Department is also responsible for administering all admission assessments for DGBS.
If your child’s class teacher feels that your child would benefit from a supplemental teaching intervention, the Learning Support Department will be contacted and areas of concern will be discussed. Together, the class teacher and the Learning Support teacher will plan a support programme tailored to the child’s needs. Parental consent will then be sought.
DBGS is an English speaking school. Therefore, a child who is applying to DBGS should be able to access the mainstream curriculum, which will be delivered in English. If your child requires additional support with their academic English, your child’s class teacher may recommend EAL intervention. This will be provided by the Learning Support department.
