Promotion Policy


Class Kindergarten to IV

There is no detention policy for the students of class Kindergarten to IV The promotion indicators are solely based on the overall performance of the child and activities throughout the session.

Class I To V

Schools are not permitted to retain students in these classes according to CBSE stipulations.

However if a student is found struggling with the curriculum and consistently does not show any improvement at all, it is advisable to hold personal meetings with the parents to counsel them about their child. The sole objective of the first counselling session, which should take place after the first semester, is to give the child an opportunity to work harder to perform better. Extra attention classes by the teacher’s will be organised for the child and his/her performance will be monitored with a liberal approach.

After regular monitoring of the performance of such children, the second counselling session will be done after the declaration of the final results. In case the child scores below 'D' in more than half of the subjects, it is indicative of the fact that the child will not be able to cope with the rigours of the next class. Improvement exams will be organized for the students in which a liberal approach along with a comfortable atmosphere will be provided to the students. If the students somehow is still unable to perform then the parents are expected to make a written request to the school to retain the child in the existing class.
