Entry evaluation for students


Brief description of entry evaluation required

Horizon's assessments take into consideration the whole child. Horizon observes communication skills, social development, behaviour, attitude, manners, and physical development – both large and small motor control and academic levels. Horizon is also interested in specific talents in any field – musical, sporting or artistic, as well as academic.

Assessments for Foundation 1 and Foundation 2 are based primarily on observation of the child at play, engaging her/him in conversation. Horizon observes children at play in the playground looking at physical development and body awareness. If possible we may visit your child at their nursery school. These are normally completed by end-November.

Horizon takes its time to allow it to get to know your child and assessments will normally take 30-50 minutes. All assessments are conducted either individually or in the company of a small group to ensure that it is a relaxed, stress-free experience.
