Junior

All pupils wanting to come to our school need to be assessed for placement. We have got a strict policy in place for ages in the different Grades and our pupils turn 5 years in Grade 00, 6 years in Grade 0 and 7 years in Grade 1.

Our placement test is to determine whether a child would be able to cope in a specific Grade. With the younger children we assess the ability to understand the academic language as well as whether the developmental milestones have been reached. From Grade 0 onwards we also add academic assessment which includes reading, writing and arithmetic.
