Promotion Policy (KG to Class 5)

Schools are not permitted to detain 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 the 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 to an opportunity to work harder to perform better.

After regular monitoring of the performance of such children , the counselling should be repeated in February. 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. The parents are expected to make a written request to the school to retain the child in the existing class
