Student Support Programme [SSP]

We have a Student Support Programme which supports the needs of students with different learning abilities and needs. A team of specially trained educators work with our learners individually and in a group setting, enabling as well as equipping them with life skills that are crucial for healthy emotional development and growth. There are multiple forums where these special educators deliver explicit lessons that teach social and emotional skills.

“Emotional well-being is our ability to understand the value of our emotions and use them to move forward in a positive direction.”

 

At the Bloomingdale International School, the emotional well-being of our students is of prime importance. Today with the growing challenges, the better we are able to manage our emotions, the greater will be our capacity to enjoy life, cope with stress, and focus on priorities. 

It is for this reason that we lay emphasis on developing an emotionally intelligent student.

 

Circle Time

To help students deal with daily stressors, develop adequate life skills and learn effective coping mechanisms, we have Circle Time classes for our learners. During this forum, they express their thoughts, views and opinions on various topics while also learning how to deal with problematic situations positively. The goal at every stage is to equip our learners with self-regulatory mechanisms, develop a positive self-image, enhance their strengths, and grow into well-integrated, resilient individuals. This strengthens their emotional health and hones their social skills considerably.
