We are a private learning centre catering for children from grade R to grade 3 at present. Our children are taught one on one in small classes.
Royal Academy is a privately owned, registered Impak Tutor Centre in terms of Section 51 of the South African Schools Act (Act 84 of 1996). We are located at 67 Glen Luce Drive, Douglasdale, Johannesburg.
Royal Learning Academy utilizes the Impak curriculum, which is in line with the National Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS). This implies that all pupils can transfer to mainstream schools whenever they want. Our environment is perfect for students who do not cope well in mainstream schools or who prefer to learn in small groups. We also find that kids who have been in environments where they have been bullied, they do better in a smaller environment. The small environment can be monitored more closely and the learners are taught how to treat each other with respect and not bully anybody.
On-going assessments are done by way of work or performances in class using various checklists, test, daily observations and portfolio work. All students will keep a portfolio of work done. The marks for these assessments and tasks completed are sent to Impak who then compile the report.
Royal Academy learners need to proficient in English or Afrikaans.
Our day runs from 08h00 – 13h00 Monday to Friday. Breakfast will be served at school for those who came early and couldn't eat at home. Lunch and snacks will be provided. Staff will be on hand daily from 6:45 for drop-off.
Aftercare is available, snack will be provided. Aftercare closes at 17:30. Late collection penalty will be applicable unless prior arrangements have been made.
Holiday care will be available and a special holiday program will be provided. All information for the holiday program will be available closer to the holiday.
There is no uniform; students are however required to be dressed in neat and comfortable clothes. Girl’s hair, if long, needs to be tied up and boy’s hair needs to be kept short.
These will coincide with the school terms as set out by the department.
