The inclusive ethos of Our Own High School is reflected in every aspect of the school’s policies and processes.
DSIB inspectors also recognized this and sited OOW’s Inclusion Department as a success story. In their words “The school has a very positive and nurturing ethos which underpins the policy for inclusion. Students of SEND are welcomed and whilst the specialist staff team is not large in number, it is cohesive and well led.” The school takes pride in this recognition. We embody the GEMS vision ‘Every child is a Genius’.
We practice a transparent and open door policy that welcomes students with varied needs. Parents feel confident to approach their ‘counsellor’ to discuss their concern. Our teachers are sensitive to the needs of the students and support the students in the classroom with the appropriate provisions and accommodations.
