Entry evaluation for students

Assessment

Brief description of entry evaluation required

KISU uses age-appropriate assessments to help KISU to understand more about the learner who is joining its community; KISU does not use them to select (or exclude) children. Assessments vary depending on the age of your child. It is important to note that KISU is a passionately inclusive school; providing it believes KISU has the resources and expertise to support your child effectively then all children are welcome. KISU aims to make assessments as relaxed as possible to ensure your child feels comfortable and able to be themselves.
