Community school - register child for admission

At the end of the first semester of grade 4, the teachers issue a primary school recommendation for each child. In this recommendation, the teachers state which type of secondary school the child should attend after primary school. This primary school recommendation is based on an overall pedagogical assessment. This takes into account

  • the child's previous learning and performance development,
  • the child's learning and working behaviour and
  • learning potential

Together with the primary school recommendation, you will also receive the half-year information for grade 4

As the parent or guardian, you decide which type of secondary school your child will attend. The decision is binding for the school administration.
