Extras
The whole school participates in a weekly assembly consisting of prayers, songs and readings. All prayers and hymns are Christian, but readings are taken from many sources and aim to encourage a respect for all religions by teaching the children about different religious beliefs and festivals and the reasons behind them.

In addition, each day begins with a gathering of the whole school for a prayer and roll-call.


Diagnostic Testing
In addition to the continuous assessments and testing carried out on a regular basis, any child who is found to be having difficulty is tested individually using either the ASTON INDEX, which is a diagnostic tool for language difficulties, or the NFER-NELSON EMDK, which is a diagnostic tool for mathematical difficulties in young learners.


Brain Gym ®
Brain Gym® is included as a daily activity in all classes. It comprises of simple, yet dynamic, physical movements which are used to integrate all parts of the brain to enhance learning. These movements are similar to movements that children naturally do during their first three years of life as they complete important developmental steps for coordination of eyes, ears, hands and the whole body. Research shows that doing these movements prior to any learning activity greatly improves the ability to assimilate and process information.
