Learner support programme

Learners who struggle with in specific subject areas may require additional attention in a supportive environment to succeed. At our Curro School, our learner support programme provides primary school learners with speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, remedial therapy, counselling, and reading support. Learners attend their therapy sessions in the discovery centre during the school day and return to class afterwards. Teachers, therapists, and the head of the discovery centre stay in close contact to ensure each learner’s progress.

Furthermore, all learners undergo annual standardised tests in spelling, reading and Mathematics. The results are recorded by the discovery team so that all learners’ progress can be monitored and possible concerns can be detected early on.
