We use age-appropriate assessments to help us to understand more about the learner who is joining our community; we do not use them to select (or exclude) children. Assessments vary depending on the age of your child. It is important to note that KISU is a passionately inclusive school; providing we believe we have the resources and expertise to support your child effectively then all children are welcome. We aim to make assessments as relaxed as possible to ensure your child feels comfortable and able to be themselves.
As aforementioned, we always try to arrange meetings for you and your child with key staff. These are not interviews. Rather, they are a chance for us to learn more about your child’s learning and curriculum needs and to support you (especially in secondary school) with subject choices. In this way we can be sure that we are fully prepared to welcome your child on his or her first day at school.
It would greatly help us to process your application in good time if you were able to bring the following documentation with you on your visit:
- Copies of your child’s most recent full school report
- Copy of your child’s passport (the bio page)
- Finance clearance letter/document from your previous school to assure us that all monies due to it have been settled
