Brief description of entry evaluation required

Primary-aged children will be assessed using a variety of age-appropriate tools including oral interviews and oral reading as well as reading comprehension tests and writing samples where appropriate. The purpose of this testing is to help determine the nature of the support needed rather than entry to the school.

In the Secondary School children must have a high level of English and Mathematics proficiency to access the curriculum and to successfully graduate therefore Verita has increasing expectations for Mathematics and English proficiency with each year of Secondary School.
