Evaluation and promotion Policy

For pre-primary and classes I to V

The evaluation process has been designed by keeping a development profile for each child. The profilepresents information on the children and their development in a continuous manner. It focuses not only on learning subjects but on the total personality development of the child. Information on the children is gathered by the teachers through observation in classrooms, activity rooms as well as outdoors, personal discussion, worksheets, oral work, clay, music, dance, physical training, etc. Routine kind of homework is deliberately avoided to reduce pressure on children and make schooling joyful. There is continuous observation of children in different aspects of development. The attempt is to translate the curriculum in a more personalized, joyful and fun manner, relevant to individual learning styles of children.
