Sparrow Foundation School was founded in 1992 in order to address the need for specialised, learner-centred education. As a part of the Sparrow Educational Trust, the Foundation School is an independent primary school, focusing on learners with special educational needs (LSEN). Sparrow Foundation School offers an adapted CAPS curriculum to learners from grade 1 to grade 7. The school is accredited with Umalusi and ISASA, and is also a member of the Anglican Board of Education.
The rising cost of educational organisations that offer remedial teaching and learning facilities excludes many differently-abled learners from accessing specialised educational services. Sparrow Foundation School bridges this gap with special needs education that is of exceptional quality, while not compromising on affordability.
In order to address the varied needs of learners, a group of experts across a range of remedial, therapeutic and educational fields work with the educators at Sparrow Foundation School to provide an educational approach that values emotional growth just as much as academic development.
Employing a holistic teaching and learning environment that makes learners feel grounded and supported, the growth mindset of learners is developed in order to enable them to become well-rounded members of society, equipped with skills that will benefit them on their educational and professional journeys later in life.
