About Our Primary School

Acts House of Education prides itself in their Primary department which comprises Grade 1 to Grade 6. We enrol learners from the age of 6 years old. We follows the CAPS curriculum with class ratios of 1:24.

Guided reading is offered in Foundation Phase from Grade 1 - 3. This is a small-group instructional approach which is designed to provide the differentiated teaching of reading. Guided reading supports children in developing reading proficiency, with the small group dynamic allowing them to be taught in a way that’s more focused on their specific needs, which can accelerate their progress. The elements include:

  • Working with small groups
  • Matching student reading ability to text levels
  • Giving everyone in the group the same text
  • Introducing the text
  • Listening to individuals read
  • Prompting students to integrate their reading processes
  • Engaging students in conversations about the text

Spiritual growth is at the heart of everything we do at Acts, therefore, learners are encouraged to engage in daily devotions, biblical assemblies and worship assemblies with the worship team of Acts Christian Church.

Our onsite Educational Psychologist looks after our learners' educational and emotional needs. We provide support for our learners to deal with the challenges of school life - in the classroom and on the field. We aim to improve the learning process and educational success of our learners. The educational psychologist works hand-in-hand with the teachers and parents for the success of the learner.

• On referral from the teacher/parent, learners who are identified as experiencing barriers to learning are assessed.
