About Us


Livingstone Primary School (SEN), situated in Morningside, is a Short Term Remedial school for children who experience specific learning difficulties such as ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech delays, language deficits, Maths difficulties such as dyscalculia and hearing loss.  However, these learners are of average and above average intelligence.  In addition, these children may experience other boundaries to learning such as, Anxiety Disorders, Asperges Syndrome and Depression to name but a few.

Our children are sent to us from mainstream schools because they struggle to read and write at an appropriate age and grade level.  We work intensively on their difficulties, as well as on the curriculum, and eventually, after two to three years they return to mainstream schools throughout Durban.

1.    The school will endeavour to achieve the primary objective of remediating  learners to overcome their specific learning difficulties.
2.    The goal is to return learners to mainstream schools within a period of two to  three years, where they can work effectively and confidently within the class.          
This will enable them to realize their true potential and to allow them to work  independently in the mainstream situation.
3.    Livingstone Primary School, furthermore, aims to reach out to Educators and Learners in Mainstream School as an LSEN resource.
