Special needs students are catered to according to their developmental levels through our dedicated school SENCO.
Having trained in Special Education Needs and with a masters in the field, Mr Mulima supervises gifted and talented children – MAT – Most Able and Talented, EAL – English as an Additional Language and students with different learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and fragile leaners.
In conjunction with other professionals such as educational psychologists and student counselors, the St. Constantine International SENCO department is able to cater for all needs of students with different learning difficulties.
“It is my job to ensure a fair, productive and happy social, working and boarding environment,” says Boarding Master Mr Emmanuel Mulima, who is also trained in Special Needs and has a Master’s degree in the field.
He plans for students according to their developmental levels, models instructions and provides consistent one-on-on, or small group interventions, as required.
In conjunction with other professionals such as educational psychologists and student counselors, the St. Constantine International SEND (Special education needs department) is able to cater for all needs of students with different learning difficulties.
Mr Mulima works alongside our other expert in this area, MrBankole Sogelola (our second SENCo) from Lagos in Nigeria.
Prior to joining St. Constantine International he taught at the Children’s International School (CIS), at Lekki, Lagos and is currently connecting with our students virtually. (As well as Special Needs, he will be working with students for EAL, teaching across both Primary and Secondary in the core subjects.)
Together Mr Mulima and Mr Bankole attend to the whole school’s SENCO needs – Primary and Secondary. Learning support assistant teachers – Upendo Mollel and Milkah Watiri also assist in Primary, along with an RBA assisting the learning support department and two volunteers.
We have an intern counsellor Ms. Tabitha who meets and gives a listening ear to our students, following guidelines set down by the school. The counsellor meets individuals and groups to promote optimum mental and emotional health.She is impartial and non-judgemental, which helps to provide a safe and confidential environment for students to look at their own values and beliefs. She works under the SEND. Mr Mulima,SENCO: firstname.lastname@example.org
