MARKS AND PROMOTION
Certain Criteria have been evolved for awarding marks to the pupils on which their promotion is considered, taking into account the work of the pupil during the whole year instead of the final exam alone.
- This gives an incentive to the pupil to study right from the beginning of the year.
- Hence parents are requested to monitor their ward's academic work from the re-opening day onwards.
- They should also see their wards do not absent themselves for trivial reasons. If a pupil absents himself/herself for any of the assessment / Summative no retest shall be given. Parents have to abide by the decision of the school authorities regarding promotion.
- Leave will not be granted unless, the absence is due to extraoridnary circumstances like serious illness for which a medical certificate must be produced and leave sanctioned by the school authorities.
- Only when children are sick, permission is granted to parents to take their child home after the assessment/ Summative exams.
- They should pick up their wards in person. Otherwise, they should depute some responsible person with a letter authorizing the person to do so.
