Inclusion Policy

Mission Statement

 

Through the promotion of academic excellence, CISB strives to develop individuals for our society who, through understanding, tolerance, and respect, will help to create a safe place where children become lifelong learners, where excellence is tempered with compassion, and where success is moderated by spiritual understanding.  Inclusion

 

Inclusion is an ongoing process that aims to increase access and engagement in learning for all students by identifying and removing barriers. This can only be successfully achieved in a culture of collaboration, mutual respect, support and problem solving. Inclusion is the learner profile in action, an outcome of dynamic earning communities. Inclusion is more about responding positively to each individual’s unique leaning needs. Inclusion is designed to prevent the marginalization of historically oppressed student groups.

The IB supports the following principles of an inclusive education:

  • Inclusion is a process by which schools and others develop their cultures, policies and practices to include all students
  • An inclusive education service offers excellence and choice, incorporating the views of all stakeholders
  • The interests of all students must be safeguarded
  • The school community and other authorizing bodies should actively seek to remove barriers to learning and participation
  • All students should have access to an appropriate education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their personal potential
  • With the right skill training, strategies and support, the majority of students with special educational needs can receive an education within the general education setting

  Confidentiality

Confidentiality applies to all verbal and written information about potential, enrolling and previously enrolled children and their families. All staff will be briefed on the need for confidentiality and will be expected to fulfill their obligation to respect the protection of privacy. Written records will be stored in a secure location with access limited to the principal and the DP Coordinator. No information will be released about a child and the parent/legal guardian during enrolment or transition to another receiving program or school without first receiving the written permission of the parent/guardian.

Language Celebrations

To promote Mother Tongue of our students as well as the host country, CISB sets aside 2 weeks in February for students to explore and learn about language. The first week is Literacy week where students explore their own Mother Tongue, their culture and the literature that relates to them.  They are then given time to develop their own “stories” and present these at the culmination exhibition.  This exhibition is in conjunction with February 21st – International Mother Tongue Day.  Parents are invited to come and share their stories and culture during these two weeks to the various classes in the school and then at the end when the exhibition of student work is displayed.

CISB is also involved in encouraging students to participate in the annual Francophonie Week with Alliance Francaise of Dhaka, French School of Dhaka and Canadian High Commission.
