The following criteria will be the basis of continual internal assessment: Classroom observations, field work, scrap book work, nature study walks, monthly projects, skill oriented works, assignments etc.
- Promotion is based on continuous comprehensive evaluation (CCE) throughout the year.
- No child will be detained if he / she
- has 75% attendance

- If the child’s progress is not satisfactory, the parent will have to give an undertaking
- that satisfactory progress will be ensured in the next class.
Class VI to VIII
To reduce the stress and anxiety which often builds up during and after the examination, a process of continuous and comprehensive evaluation is followed and feed back is provided regularly to parents. For the purpose of the CCE, the academic year has been divided into two terms. The first term will be from June-September and the Second Term from October-March.
The CCE is intended to provide holistic profile of the learner through evaluation of both scholastic and co-scholastic areas spread over the two terms.
Evaluation of Scholastic Areas:
