EVALUATION 

We evaluate learners from both the Senior and Junior Phase throughout the year.  An exam is written every term in the Senior Phase.  We emphasize the acquisition of skills and strive to present a holistic view of each child’s academic performance.

 

Progress reports are given out every term in the Junior and Senior Primary Phase.  These reports are followed by parent evenings during which you are able to discuss your child’s progress with his /her educator.

 

At Veldenvlei Primary School we strive towards the developing of the child as a whole and not just as an academic learner.  We strive towards a school as part of a system that consists of educational partnerships and networks.  Our aim is to prepare the learner in such a way that he / she will be an asset to society and the environment.

  • om die beeld van ons skool met trots uit te dra sodat wetsgehoorsame landsburgers gekweek kan word.

EVALUERING 

Die leerders in beide die Junior Primêre sowel as Senior Primêre Fases word deurlopend geëvalueer.  ‘n Eksamen word elke kwartaal geskryf in die Senior Fase.  Ons beklemtoon die bemeestering van vakvaardighede en ons streef daarna om ‘n geheelbeeld van elke leerder se akademiese vermoëns weer te gee.

 

Vorderingsverlae word elke kwartaal uitgegee vir die Junior en Senior Primêre Fase en word opgevolg met oueraande waartydens u u kind(ers) se vordering met die opvoeders kan bespreek.

 

By Primêre Skool Veldenvlei word daarna gestreef om die kind nie net as ‘n akademiese leerder te ontwikkel nie, maar die kind in sy / haar totaliteit.  Ons mik na ‘n skool as deel van ‘n stelsel van onderwysvennootskappe en netwerke asook om die kind voor te berei sodat die leerder ‘n aanwins kan wees vir die gemeenskap en die omgewing.
