Curro Burgundy is an independent school in Bothasig, Cape Town that provides high-quality education for learners from 3 years to Grade 1 with higher grades phasing in annually. We also offer an assisted learning stream from Grade 1. Our approach to specialised education within the mainstream curriculum is meant for learners who need additional support to achieve expected competencies in the core academic skills – literacy and numeracy. Our goal is to eventually reintegrate these learners in the mainstream environment. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual workplace goals.
What is assisted learning?
Assisted learning provides high quality educational assistance to learners who need smaller classes where they can get the immediate support they need to achieve expected competencies. Learners still follow the national CAPS curriculum, but benefit from the necessary support and concessions provided by the Education Department and the school.
For learners to benefit from assisted learning, they need to be able to maintain the basics of the mainstream curriculum with the support provided by the school. Learners who are unable to do so, would benefit more from another form of specialised education, such as remedial learning.
What do we offer?
At Curro Burgundy, we balance academic excellence with sports and cultural well-being, thereby ensuring that learners develop into well-rounded individuals. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum provide a strong basis in the foundation phase through specialised programmes (such as the Bazoo integrated literacy programme) and continues to build the skills and knowledge required to succeed later on in primary school.
Our enhanced curriculum provides learners with 21st-century skills, while our classrooms and facilities are fitted with state-of-the-art tools. Our dedicated teachers give learners personal attention in the classroom, which helps to ensure that they achieve to the best of their abilities.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-awareness, discipline and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Therefore, we offer focused cultural activities aimed at helping learners discover their inherent talents and broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. These activities are generally included in the school fees.
