The European Schools recognise that each pupil learns in a unique manner and that some pupils may experience the need for additional support or challenge during their schooling.
To that purpose, the European Schools promote access to learning by creating
accessible and flexible learning environments, using of a
variety of teaching methods and learning materials in their classrooms.
Whenever necessary, personalised support is provided in the form of
reasonable accommodations and
support measures that cater for the pupils' needs and foster a successful, increasingly autonomous learning path.
Different forms and levels of support are provided, designed to ensure appropriate help and equal opportunities for all the pupils, including those having special educational needs, experiencing difficulties at any point in their schooling or gifted ones in order to enable them to develop and progress according to their potential.
The following documents show how the European Schools take these children's special circumstances into account:
