Special Needs Provision
The Inclusion Department comprising a Senco, a Social Worker and two Psychologists look after 53 children on the SEN register and 5 children on the G&T register.

The school caters for children with mild to moderate learning difficulties, medical conditions and physical disabilities who can access a tailored but predominantly mainstream curriculum.

Provision for SEN students includes IEPs, withdrawal sessions, counselling, behaviour therapy, and provision for shadow teachers in class.

Provision for G&T students include ALPs which provide individualised targets and personalised opportunities to stretch and challenge the students.
Al Basma British School students receive a robust, creative, vibrant, academic challenging and inspiring 21st Century education, making the schooling years an enjoyable time filled with rich and memorable experiences, preparing them for life. Each student’s unique skills and talents are released and enhanced in an environment of care and mutual respect; one that promotes resilience, confidence, self-esteem and self-management skills.
Al Basma British School is a healthy, safe environment within which students can enjoy learning, make progress and achieve high standards. They will be encouraged to participate fully in school life and make a positive contribution to the school and wider community, ultimately becoming successful, motivated, well-adjusted adults who achieve economic well-being. We will measure our success against these outcomes.
In a culture of collaboration and co-operation where students are taught to value diversity, our students are encouraged to work individually and with each other. Students will also be encouraged to be thinkers, creators and self-directed learners, respectful of others, and display positive behaviour and attitudes at all times.
