The Solution Studio

All the students at Cedar International School are entitled to achieve their potential academically, socially, and emotionally as outlined in the school mission and objectives. All students have individual and unique needs, however we recognise that for certain students it will be necessary to make additional provisions in order for these aims to be met. The Solution Studio is here to help!

At Cedar, special educational needs is defined as an individual’s need for a provision which is additional to, or otherwise different from the educational provision made for students of the same age, beyond the boundaries of expected levels of differentiation.

The constraints may be any one or a combination of the following; physical, social, emotional, or intellectual. We also recognise the needs of the more able, gifted and talented student, who may require additional challenge, social or emotional support through our Island Inquirers programme. The Solution Studio Inclusion model is an evidence-based practice, which provides individualised support, through a range of interventions with a range of professionals based on the students needs, whether academic, social or emotional. We aim to

  • Build self esteem and confidence
  • Meet the academic, social and emotional needs of students
  • Remove barriers to learning
  • Develop independence
  • Provide individual education plans (IEP) as needed
  • Work in partnership with parents, students, teachers, allied health providers

The Solution Studio team currently consists of;

  • Mrs Gemma Restell – SENDCo (special educational needs and disabilities coordinator)
  • Mrs Catherine Ouriach – school counsellor
  • Mrs Sharon Rameshar – primary support
  • Mrs Victoria Ghiorse – primary support
  • Ms Malen Semira – secondary support
