Montrose Pre-Primary

Montrose Pre-Primary is a private school set in the heart of Parkmore, close to the Sandton CBD.  Although closely associated with Montrose Primary school for the past 15 years, Montrose Pre-Primary School is a private pre-primary school.

N.B. It should be noted that enrolment and acceptance at Montrose Pre-Primary School does not guarantee admission to Montrose Primary School, as there are separate admission requirements.

The school offers Grade R classes for learners entering into Grade 1 the following year, as well as Grade 00 and Grade 000 classes and the principal is Mrs Fiona Niemand.

Our fully qualified teachers feel that it is a privilege to share the learning experiences of small children. The classroom will be a home away from home. Each day is planned so that there are numerous opportunities for individual attention and for participation in groups activities. The many learning experiences are presented through thematic teaching throughout the year and we value and encourage parental support.

Aftercare is not included in the school fees and will be charged for separately. A snack and a drink are provided during the morning, and lunch and an afternoon snack are provided during aftercare.

PARENT’S GUIDE TO ASSESSMENT

Assessment Weighting for Grade 1 – 3

Every subject is sub-divided into divisions for example in Languages in Grd R – 3:

  • Listening and Speaking
  • Reading and Phonics
  • Handwriting
  • Writing


Each sub-division is weighted and does not count the same percentage.

Reading and Phonics is calculated as a much higher percentage than Handwriting.

This applies to all subjects. Please do not add all the marks together and try and calculate a Term Percentage. The calculation will not be thle same as the report.

All weightings have been programmed into our Report Programme and the calculations are done automatically.

The focus of assessment within Physical Education falls into two broad categories:

  • Participation: exposes learners to an understanding of the value of regular participation in physical activity. Participation should encourage further development, enjoyment and the building of confidence.
  • Movement performance: each learner will be assessed at the level at which they are capable of performing. Movement performance must not encourage a sense of competition.
