Rankoromane School

Provision of Services

Rankoromane School provides primary school education for 56 children with learning difficulties and related disabilities aged between 5 – 14 years.
The curriculum is based on a synthesis of the Botswana Government Primary School Syllabus and the Waldorf education approach of Camphill schools worldwide. It emphasizes experiential learning guided by the individual child.
The education programme is holistic in that it addresses the full range of learning, nurturing and developmental needs of the child including activities of daily living, communication and other social skills, numeracy and literacy, arts, crafts, sports, etc.

Learning goals for each learner are defined in an Individual Education Plan that is developed together with parents / family, residential care staff, teaching staff and therapists as appropriate.
This guides the learning path of each child and is updated annually based on regular formative assessments, the developing capacity of the child to decide on their learning priorities, the input of parents / family and other related factors.
