INTA Admissions Policy
SCS-INTA has many students for whom English is a second language. We therefore admit students whatever their level of fluency and as a principle we ‘mainstream’ all students as fast as possible. Our ability to give individualised learning programmes is limited by economic considerations.
Students with physical disabilities
Some but not all classes are located in rooms which are wheelchair accessible. Students with physical disabilities are welcomed, although our ability to meet all needs is restricted.
Students with special learning needs
We are open to all students, however we do need to be fully aware in advance of any special learning needs and you are obliged to disclose any past diagnoses or additional learning support that has been given. As we are a ‘fri grundskole’ It may not be possible for us to provide for your child as well as he/she may be provided for elsewhere.
