Support for Learning and School Attendance

Support for learning and growth is part of high quality basic education. Support for learning and school attendance is available for all students. Forms of support include the student’s pedagogical support, guidance and student welfare. The student has a right for early, systematic and proactive support. The support received by the student must be flexible, persevering, and it must transform according to the student’s needs. Different forms of support can be used singly or in conjunction with others so that they complement each other.

Student welfare includes promoting and maintaining learning, good mental and physical health and social well-being, as well as activities improving their preconditions. The aim is to create a healthy and safe learning environment, to protect mental health, to prevent exclusion and to promote the well-being of the school community.

With the multifold support of learning and growth every student is guaranteed a possibility to succeed in learning, to develop as a learner and to become an educated person.
