Working together...

English International School Moscow provides an environment which enables staff and pupils to develop trusting and supportive relationships.

We pride ourselves on being able to work closely with English International School Moscow parents so we can together support students with their academic and personal needs.

The House system is specifically designed and applied to develop positive and responsible behaviour, plus it is used to acknowledge initiative and leadership which is intended to develop pupil self-esteem.

All pupils receive counselling and guidance throughout their time at English international School, Moscow as part of the daily programme.

The school is committed to the values inherent in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)* (1990). At English International School Moscow, we are committed to safeguarding children and young people and we expect everyone who works in our school to share this commitment. Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that worries them. We will always act in the best interest of the child.

The school promotes satisfactory development and growth by providing intellectual and physical challenge through the development of a sound curriculum policy that will promote the welfare and safeguarding of children. The school aims to create an environment within which children feel comfortable and know how to discuss such matters within a culture of strong pastoral support.

The school is also bound to take reasonable measures to safeguard the emotional welfare of its students from bullying or abuse within the school.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage and Primary Department, the class teachers are mainly responsible for ensuring the pupils receive all the support they need through the class teacher – pupil relationship.

In the Secondary Department, we have the Form Tutor arrangement. This provides an opportunity for students in Year 7 – 13 to relate to a member of staff, whenever they may need specific guidance and support, both academic or personal.

Pupils needs are addressed sensitively and effectively.

Personal, Social and Health Education lessons provide an opportunity for pupils to use a forum to explore emotions, growing up and the world around them.
