We cater for learners between the ages of 6 and 18 years. Class sizes are small to cater for individual needs, maximum 10 pupils per class. Termly an Individual Development Plan (I.D.P.) is revised for each child. An I.D.P. promotes the unique growth of academic, social and emotional skills designed specifically for your child. The I.D.P. process is a vehicle to establish communication between parents and school personnel as equal partners, to make joint, informed decisions regarding:
  • the childrens’ needs, appropriate goals and

  • services needed to support the children, to help them achieve their potential

Junior Phase

6 – 10 year olds

The key focus is on perceptual skills, literacy, numeracy and life orientation.

There is a strong emphasis in empowering every child, making every child a reader. This approach continues throughout the school. Therapeutic support consists of pull-out individual therapy and an integrated approach into the classroom, to assess whether skills learned in therapy are transferred to another environment.

Within this phase there are four classes grouped according to age & ability levels. Class size varies from six to ten learners.

Junior One
5 – 6 year olds
Junior Two
7 – 8 year olds
Junior Three
8 – 9 year olds
