Our Approach

Our Approach

All students undergo an initial evaluation to find the child’s current academic level and equip the school with an understanding of how they learn. This information informs us of skills acquired, the level the student can access the curriculum and identifies the additional programming required to support your child in becoming a more efficient learner.

Our core curriculum is based on the National Curriculum of England with an important local slant making it relevant to our island students. We deliver aspects of the curriculum using a Project Based Learning (PBL) approach in which students actively engage in real-world, personally meaningful projects.  Accommodations are varied and strategies to support learning are embedded into our approach.

Students will benefit from evidence-based intervention programming working at their own pace to master essential literacy and numeracy skills.  The focus is to learn specific strategies to address and overcome identified challenges.

Our students also participate in the Arrowsmith Program doing cognitive enhancement exercises aimed at strengthening learning capacity. The Arrowsmith principle is rooted in neuroscience and the concept of brain plasticity- stimulation of weaker cognitive areas that contribute to learning difficulties can be strengthened. Once the source of the learning difficulty is addressed, the learner’s ability to perform complex tasks will also be improved. For more information on the cognitive enhancement program, please watch the TEDx Toronto video The Woman Who Changed Her Brain:

All-encompassing is an emphasis on helping students develop effective learning behaviours. When students start to master the right learning behaviours, they experience success leading to improved grades, better self-esteem, and an individual who can take charge of their learning.

Our Cognitive Enhancement Programme is designed and delivered based on the world-famous Arrowsmith Program. The programme foundations are derived from neuroscience research demonstrating that it is possible to address learning disabilities by identifying and strengthening weak cognitive capacities. The goal of our Cognitive Enhancement Programme is to help students strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning dysfunctions and to enable them to become effective, confident and self-directed learners for life. This programme deals with the root causes of the learning disability rather than managing its symptoms. Students become effective learners without having to compensate for their learning disabilities. Their ability to perform complex tasks is improved when the weak cognitive areas are strengthened.

Is CLC&S right for your child? Take Arrowsmith’s 30-minute cognitive profile questionnaire to start the journey into understanding your child’s brain’s strengths and weaknesses through a cognitive lens.

Then, contact us to discuss how by making your child a part of our school community, we can help strengthen your child’s ability to learn.
