School Support Services

The school support team is there to support students, parents and teachers. We aim to prevent and resolve behavioural and learning difficulties. Together with the student’s family and teachers, we will find a way to support every student according to their needs.

Students, parents and teachers can contact the support team for advice on many different topics. You are also welcome to share your good ideas with us!
