Inclusive teaching refers to the creation of a learning environment which provides all learners, regardless of their specific learning difficulty, with the opportunity to fulfil their learning potential.

 

Inclusive teaching describes the range of approaches to teaching, that consider the diverse needs of all learners to create a learning environment where all students feel valued and where all learners can thrive.

Shelanti Private School adheres to all the requirements of the National Curriculum, CAPS. Our focus is on 21st Century skills development and not purely content. These skills include: critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, information literacy, media literacy, technological literacy and flexibility. This ensures high academic standards and a smooth transition into institutions that use different approaches.  The curriculum is presented and unlocked according to each learners' strengths. This differs from other schools, where the curriculum is the focus and all learners are expected to adapt to one specific style of teaching and learning.

 

 

The intellect of the learners at Shelanti Private School is recognised and is taught in the unique manner in which they learn, they flourish emotionally and excel academically. (See Alumni )At Shelanti we use different approaches to achieve these aspects.

 

  • We consider Sensory Play and Sensory Exercises as crucial to the success of all our learners. Movement is used daily and forms part of the curriculum. Movement benefits students' work and behaviour in school; their understanding of difficult concepts, their retention of learned information, and their lifelong health and well-being. Movement is one of the most beneficial ways for ALL children to engage and retain the information they are being taught in school.
  • All the learners at Shelanti Private School have a sensory profile allowing the educators to generate specific exercises according to these profiles.
  • We recognise the 9 forms of intelligence (Howard Gardner) and merge this knowledge with the instruments of the Kobus Neethling Institute.

 

Every learner's teaching and learning preference is determined using Kobus Neethling's instruments. These profiles now guide the educators to the learners' different learning styles. Educators can therefore prepare lessons, assessments and homework tasks accordingly.

Shelanti Private School recognises the technological needs of the 21st Century learner. We therefore integrate Coding and Robotics in our curriculum. This allow the learners to use the "language" that come naturally to them all. They learn crucial 21st century skills such as creativity, grit, perseverance, problem solving and collaboration to name a few.

 

 

Google Classroom is used as the platform to share tasks and projects. This platform encourages autonomy, independence and accountability.

Life Skills forms an important aspect of the curriculum as it includes Performing and Visual Arts. Visual Art is a focal point at Shelanti and forms an intrinsic part of our integration model.
