FS1 – FS2

School visits for Foundation Stage 1 and Foundation Stage 2 are based primarily on observation of the child at play in a classroom setting, engaging them in conversation and looking at physical development and body awareness.

Years 1 – 9

Assessments for Year 1 to 8 are conducted either individually or in the form of a small group to ensure that it is a relaxed, stress-free experience. They include basic mathematics, reading and writing.

Assesment Criteria & Process 

Our observations and assessments take into consideration the whole child. We observe communication skills, social development, behaviour, attitude, manners, physical development – both large and small motor control – and academic levels. We are also interested in specific talents in any field – musical, sporting, or artistic, as well as academic.

We take our time to allow us to get to know your child and observations and assessments will normally take 30-50 minutes.

All observation and assessment documents, results and comments remain the property of Safa British School. After the observation/assessment, you will be contacted within a week by the registrar who will inform you whether Safa British School is able to offer a place.

Waiting Lists 

In the case that no further places are available in a year group, children who have successfully passed the entry assessment will be placed on our waiting list and seats will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
