Promotion retention policies

Kindergarten
For KG there is only continuous assessment throughout the academic year. In KG continuous evaluation is mostly through daily observation. The tests are spontaneous. We give our children regular oral and written feedback on their learning so that they understand how to progress. Their involvement in the review process raises standards, and it empowers students to take action towards their next steps in learning.

The assessment information is discussed with parents during the Open Houses.

For Grade 1 & 2 four formative assessments with 25% weightage each is conducted.
