At Inforum Academy, all classes are face-to-face sessions. Students sometimes use computers for research purposes.

The teacher assesses your child with an assessment test first and they identify the weakness. Based on that, advice is given about which STEP (level) suits your child.
If your child is behind in their grade, the teacher may offer the level below as a catch-up.
For example:
If your child is in Year 3 and s/he is behind in class, s/he may be offered the STEP 2 class at Inforum Academy after assessment.

It the assessment confirms this, then the next higher Step level will be offered.

The Essentials program is a combination of English and Maths.

Maths is also used in everyday life and we believe that it is important because it allows a child to take complex processes and make them more manageable by applying structure, patterns and rules.

Early grades are good to start the habit of studying and improving comprehension skills. We believe that a strong foundation is very important for their future academic learning and we help to build a stronger foundation and students’ confidence from early grades.
