Parents need to commit to supporting the school and the learner.
Placement depends on whether the learner will benefit from remedial interventions and parents enrolling their child at Charlton Scholars must accept and comply with the admission criteria and therapy requirements.
Learners accommodated will include those with specific learning difficulties in reading, writing, spelling, spoken language, comprehension, memory, numeracy or perceptual skills. Underachievement should not be the result of poor work ethic, psychiatric disorders, trauma or neglect.
Neurological disorders including ADHD must be identified by a neurologist, pediatrician or psychologist. Should learners with tourettes, epilepsy or dyslexia be unable to cope with the CAPS mainstream syllabus, their needs can be accommodated on merit.
Learners identified on the Autistic Spectrum can also be accommodated provided the child has learning potential and can cope in a social environment.
Learners with mild intellectual barriers can be accommodated up to the age of 10 years where they will be referred to a school where skills are taught as they would no longer benefit from our educational programme.
Learners with severe visual or hearing impairments as well as learners with physical barriers or cognitively handicapped learners, cannot be accommodated at Charlton Scholars.
Those learners with behaviour barriers, such as severe emotional barriers/psychiatric conditions cannot be accommodated either.
Charlton Scholars does not offer boarding facilities or transport services. Parents are responsible for the transportation of their own children.
