Wellbeing

 

    How Is Wellbeing Defined at ISP?

    We believe that wellbeing...

    • is central to the development and fundamental happiness of our students;
    • is a focus on students as individuals, made possible by our small and close-knit community;
    • is an individualised package that supports a student's unique needs;
    • is a commitment from all staff to actively support and safeguard children.

    Our united and collaborative approach to wellbeing received commendations from the Council of International Schools (CIS), the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB) during the 2019 joint accreditation.
