Part of this interview’s purpose is to discuss whether there are any additional learning needs to be considered. Having additional learning needs does not exclude a student from entering Ajyal International School. However, the School needs to ensure that there are appropriate resources available to provide the level of support required. Ajyal asks for as much information as possible during the enrolment process to ensure that all relevant considerations are made, and that the school and the family have the same understanding and expectations. There may be additional fees required with in ADEC guidelines to fully deliver the additional identified support.
