We accept pupils who can be successful in the daily academic program, provided there is space available in the grade. In addition, we offer appropriate Pupil-centred instruction for pupils with identified mild to moderate learning needs through our Learning Support Services. Particular support is provided for Reading, Mathematics and hand-writing. We do not have a program for pupils who require support for severe learning needs. However we’re happy to work with external specialist support agencies and therapists for the benefit of children that may require specialized support.
Admission to Newland Elementary is non-discriminatory and open to all pupils without regard to race, sex, religion, national or ethnic origin. We invite applications from pupils who can benefit from a broad, balanced, rich curriculum.
