Admissions

Admission Related Information for the English Section

Rödaberg is a municipal school with a special assignment to provide education in English for children living in Sweden for a limited period of time. The education follows the Swedish Curriculum.

All subjects are taught in English. We have one class for Years 1 to 9. There is no preschool group. To be eligible, the students must have mastered English well enough to follow the lessons and assignments.

Swedish is taught from Year 1. In Years 7 to 9 it is taught for the same amount of time as in the Swedish section.
 

Priority Order of Admission:

First
Children of foreign researchers/experts staying in Sweden for a limited period of time.
Second
Swedish children, who have been living abroad, attended English-speaking schools, and are likely to go abroad again.

Within these groups we give priority to children living near the school.

Application Processing:
Applications for Year 1 will be answered in late April. Applications for a new school year for classes 2 to 9 will be answered in May. Applications for students coming during the school year will be answered within a few days.

We cannot be sure of how many places will be available at the start of the school year until April / May; as parents' work contracts, for example, may be prolonged. When we know the number of places available, the admission process starts with priority group 1 - Children of foreign researchers and experts.

Inter-municipal Agreement
Parents living outside the boundaries of Stockholm have to get a signed agreement from their municipality for the transfer of money for the child's schooling in Stockholm. The forms to fill in are available from the office, and the agreement must be made before the student starts here. If a student living in Stockholm moves outside the Stockholm boundaries the parents must immediately inform the school and apply for the Inter-municipal Agreement.

Placement
We consider the following factors when initially placing a student in a class: age, previous schooling and language ability - as stated in the application. If records from previous schools are provided, we take them into consideration. After an assessment period of three to four weeks, during which we also look at the child´s maturity and social skills, the final placement is made.

School Fees
Rödaberg is a municipal school which is why there are no fees for tuition, books or school lunches. Parents will, however, be billed for damaged or lost books.
