Policy & Protocol
We always put our students learning and growth as our first priority. In these challenging times, our thoughts are with the whole Belvedere International School community. We are grateful for all the kind messages from parents and we take strength from your support. This is not an easy time for everyone but believe it is important that we all work together. We are confident that as a united school community, we will move forward in a positive direction.
Our staff continue to work very hard to deliver school work remotely and to offer wellbeing advice and activities, as well as providing additional help and support to our families. We have always worked extremely well together and now, more than ever, this partnership will help us to navigate this challenge. Our school will continue to work together in order to provide continuous home learning to the highest level to our students. Stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
We are grateful for our strong partnership with parents and for their continued support that they are providing at home. Please find links below to some guides and information that we hope you find useful as you support your children at home in this period of distance learning.
Please find below the timetables for our distance learning programme. We also offer an online activities program each day from 3.30pm. Hours are adjusted during the Holy Month of Ramadan in accordance with Adek.
In the case of absence, Parents should contact the school before 10.00am on the morning of the absence from distance learning.
