Educational follow-up and Inclusive school
The French educational system is universal and inclusive: it welcomes all pupils of legal schooling age and has to offer them modalities of teaching adapted to their condition.
In this context, the follow-up of pupils with special educational needs is a priority of the French Ministry of Education, the Agency for French Teaching Abroad and our college.
This monitoring is organized under the authority of the principal, in consultation with the teaching teams, in coordination with educational specialists and psychologists (including the school psychologist of the college), and in constant dialogue with families and pupils.
The identification of learning disabilities is constant and the management of the college can at any time ask a family to consult the specialists of their choice to analyze and specify the disorders that have been identified.
A procedure for setting up, monitoring and evaluating pedagogical solutions is systematically started. It may concern (non-exhaustive list):
- “dys-” disorders (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, etc.)
- attention deficit disorders
- mild autistic syndromes
It also concerns diseases that a pupil may have, either sporadically or chronically (non-exhaustive list):
- eating disorders
- physico-motor handicap
- pathology requiring special intervention (subject to management’s approval of the ability of the college to provide a safe environment for the child and caregivers
In all cases, protocols are set up (PAI, PPRE, PPS, etc.), each corresponding to a situation.
