The Student Care Team is a multidisciplinary team that works collaboratively to support students in need, or to support those affected by a particular situation.
The aim of the Student Care Team is to ensure that all students receive an equal education and the support they need to achieve their goals. This is in line with the values and ethos of IES, where a key for learning is a safe and orderly environment. IES Tyresö works together with social services, the county council, and the police in Stockholm.
Overseen by the Student Care Coordinators, the team is made up of two nurses, two school counsellors, special needs teachers, and a study/career advisor.
The team meets regularly to evaluate behaviours by students that are perceived to be threatening, harming or disruptive to the student, to others or to both, and coordinate an appropriate response.
