Remedial school Johannesburg


Mulbarton Remedial School is a small independent primary school situated in Mulbarton, Johannesburg. The school opened in 2004 at the request of parents who were looking for a school that met their children’s educational needs. Over the years, Mulbarton Remedial School has had a positive impact in our community.

We provide a caring and educationally sound environment through remedial teaching for the child who does not cope in the mainstream classroom. The teachers, parents and child work together as a team. Our approach provides a positive, enabling and encouraging environment where children are taught to believe that they can achieve at school and in the sporting arena. We build into each child to develop self-esteem, independence and resilience through our daily routines and programmes.

The teachers are all highly qualified, with years of experience in remedial teaching who are also dedicated to teaching and supporting each of the children they teach. A team of experienced, enthusiastic teachers’ assistants work alongside the teachers.

There is one class per grade from Grade 1 through to Grade 7. Classes have a maximum of 13 learners so that individual attention can be given to each child. When the need arises, smaller support classes with a maximum of 8 learners are provided for those who have large gaps in their learning. Remediation is an on-going part of our daily teaching, with concessions put in place from Grade 1 where necessary for specific learners.

We teach the core National Curriculum, adapting the curriculum to meet the specific needs of our learners. All the required subjects are taught in each grade. In addition, the school offers the following to further extend and develop each child’s potential:


  • Computer skills
  • Art, pottery & craft lessons
