ADMISSION AND RE-REGISTRATION

Overview

It is the policy of A’Takamul International School that the agreed target groups of students are registered in an efficient and effective manner. Student recruitment is essential for school progress and success. All staff have a part to play in recruitment, although some will be more active than others. It is important to have a clearly defined admission policy, structured so that every staff member knows his/her individual role.

Purpose

  1. To ensure that each member of staff attempts to provide quality service to the students and families of all students.
  2. To attain and maintain the set target for student registration.
  3. To increase the registration and thereby the funds coming into the school.
  4. To ensure all details related to admission, placement and potential student success are accounted for.
