Under certain conditions, our Complex can respond to requests as follows:

Conditional offer

If it is determined that the student does not fully meet the requirements according to the interview/ test results, but the school feels that the child has a higher likelihood of making positive progress, a conditional offer is issued to admit the student to the Complex with the support of the family and additional tutor and re-assess that student after a certain period.

Waiting list

If no places are available in the targeted stream of the school, a place on the waiting list may be offered. While this may be conditional upon who leaves the school (and plans of current students may be subject to change), we make every effort to provide an accurate estimate regarding the likely waiting time.

Declined

It is rare for us to decline students who have completed the test; this would only occur in rare cases in which:

- The family are unwilling to support the school in the required areas of the home-school partnership;

- We are therefore concerned that the student will not make satisfactory progress;

- None of the streams available for the students’ age are appropriate to their learning needs;

- A child has very profound special educational or behavioural needs;

Home-school partnership

We welcome families who are open-minded, share our school’s vision and are prepared to nurture their child’s success, on the educational paths provided by our school through effective home-school partnership.  This is essential to the success of students on their educational journey, irrespective of the language of instruction or the  stream that they enter.

Parents should recognise and be willing to cooperate with the school’s philosophy and teaching methodology, and they should be prepared for a long-term commitment to supporting their child’s education.

Key responsibilities of parents whose children attend Modern Educational Complex named in Honour of Heydar Aliyev include:

  • ensuring that their child is present and punctual in their school attendance (aiming for a minimum of 95% attendance);
  • reading and (when requested) responding to letters and emails sent by the school;
  • supporting and monitoring the completion of your child’s reading and homework at home;  
  • attending parent-teacher meetings at least four times per year in addition to any more urgent/ impromptu meetings that the school may request;
