Language support for students not fluent in English

All children that join our school with no or limited knowledge of English will receive English as an Additional Language (EAL) to accelerate their English development and allow them to fully access the curriculum.
During their first 6 weeks at BEPS, the beginners participate in the EAL "Fun Club" and receive daily a "Survival English" lesson to help them settle into our English speaking environment.
After this period, and according to the child's level, the Learning Support team and Class Teacher will recommend the appropriate number of EAL sessions for the rest of the year. Parents will be informed before the sessions begin and will receive feedback on progress at the end of each term. The number of EAL sessions is reviewed on a termly basis.

Use of technology in the classroom

At BEPS we regard technology as an integral part of students’ learning. From Reception upwards, the children visit the Computer room once a week (in half class-sized groups). Here they develop their skills at their own level. When appropriate the children also have the opportunity to use our bank of Chromebooks and iPads in their classroom.

Is the school ready to use virtual classrooms when needed? (e.g. teaching lessons online if the school is closed, e.g. during COVID-19 closures)

Yes. Online learning was implemented for all year levels during the recent COVID-19 quarantines. Platforms: SeeSaw for Early Years, Lower School and Year 3, Google classroom for Upper School, Google Classroom and ManageBac for Secondary, ManageBac for parents. These are used alongside the established email procedures.

Do teachers assign homework to their students?

Yes. At BEPS we believe homework is important. However, it also needs to be balanced as children need time to play and engage in other activities, either at home or in the local community. Apart from reading, no homework is given during the weekend or the holidays.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Since 1972 BEPS International School has served the International Community of Brussels by providing quality education for children aged 2½ to 15. It is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Brussels, surrounded by the green of the Bois de La Cambre.
During their time at BEPS, children are provided with exciting learning opportunities to ensure that they reach their full potential not only academically, but also emotionally, socially and personally.
The school’s unique approach to teaching and learning and its development of international mindedness has been so successful that, as of September 2018, BEPS had expanded with a new Secondary branch.

Teaching approach of the school

BEPS International School is committed to providing high-quality education and developing a love of learning in our children. They are encouraged to become confident, independent learners and global citizens. Our friendly and welcoming community offers a safe, caring and stimulating environment, in which pupils are challenged to reach their full potential.
At BEPS, we want our children to engage in learning relevant to the 21st Century and beyond. They need to be able to thrive in today's world where learning is expanding and change is constant, and in tomorrow's world too. Therefore, teachers will facilitate their learning using up to date practices based on the latest research in education and neurosciences. Teachers design brain friendly learning and develop the children's ability to articulate on their learning using relevant assessment practices.
