Learning Support

The Educational Support Coordination in Berkendael is ensured by Mrs. Laura DE GREEF (laura.de-greef@edu.eursc.eu ).

Where class differentiation is not sufficient, the school provides the following educational support structures: General Support, Moderate Support, Intensive Support (type A and B).

  • General support. Any pupil may experience difficulties in a particular aspect of a subject or who may need to ‘catch up’ because he arrived later in the system of the European Schools, or having been sick or not studying in his mother tongue or dominant. Pupils may also need additional help with acquiring effective learning strategies or study skills.
  • Moderate Support is an extension of General Support. This could be suitable for pupils experiencing considerable difficulties in following the curriculum due to, for example, language issues, concentration problems, etc. It is organised for a longer period than General Support.
  • Intensive support Type A is provided to respond to an expert’s assessment of the student’s needs and to the signing of an agreement between the principal and the parents. Intensive support A is provided to pupils with specific learning needs, whether in terms of learning, emotional, behavioral or physical.
  • Intensive Support Type B : Management may decide to provide intensive support to a student or group of students who do not have a specific educational need diagnosed, for example in the form of intensive language support for a student or to a group of students unable to follow the normal school curriculum.

The reference documents (2012-05-D-14-en-7 and 2012-05-D-15-en-8) can be consulted on the website of the European Schools (www.eursc.eu).
