Since our start we have been creating an all inclusive environment, offering holistic teaching to accommodate the needs of each and every one of our learners.
What we offer
At Goodwood Park Primary School we offer comprehensive education, to learners from grade 1 – 7. Unfortunately, we do not offer grade R education or facilities.
Our education phases are divided into 3, to ensure that we offer our learners all they need during the different stages of primary school. We offer:
- Foundation Phase, Grade 1-3: we provide continuous assessment based education (CAPS). School hours for grade 1-2 is from 07:50 – 13:30.
- Intermediate Phase, Grade 4-6: learners are required to write tests and exam through the year, all of which adds to their end year mark. School hours are from 07:50 – 14:30 on Mondays to Thursdays, and 07:50 – 13:45 on Fridays.
- Senior Phase, Grade 7: learners write a range of tests and exams through the year, which counts for their final results at the end of the year. Their school hours are from 07:50 – 14:30 on Mondays to Thursdays, and 07:50 – 13:45 on Fridays.
We also arrange a wide range of extramural activities and fun events throughout the year.
