Curriculum Information

The Ivy Academy material has been developed in order to facilitate Blended Learning and enable all learners to achieve to their optimal potential.

Each learner receives a manual per subject that will cover the entire National Curriculum Statement. This includes all the Learning Outcomes and Assessment Standards, as well as the new CAPS adaptations to each curriculum. In each workbook is a selection of tasks with answers, for learners to monitor their own progress, as well as additional tasks that will be submitted to educators for assessment in accordance with the National Assessment Documents.

This includes tasks for Continuous Assessment (CASS) or School Based Assessment (SBA) and additional tasks that can be recorded to document learners’ progress. For revision purposes, interactive computer assessments have been developed. The learners’ results will be monitored carefully to identify possible intervention strategies and also to provide parents with ongoing feedback.

In addition, all learners will have access to the visual presentation of each lesson per subject in accordance with the National Curriculum Statement. Material for all subjects is available to our students using our Interactive technology based tuition. This will enable learners to work through every lesson at their own pace. This Technology Learning Based Programme has, as its objective, the enhancement and refinement of the learning process. 

Learners will be required to purchase English, Afrikaans and Zulu (if it is a subject of choice) literary setworks for their year of study.

Other subject teachers may recommend additional textbooks for practice and enrichment exercises. These textbooks, however, are not compulsory.
