STUDENT PROMOTION THROUGH THE SCHOOL

PR-7-6

PROCEDURAL DOCUMENT

Effective Date: 15-Sep-08

 

Rationale

To ensure that students are promoted through the school in a fair and consistent manner. 

Guidelines

  1. Students who turn 5 between January and 31 June will be classified at Year 1.  Students who turn 5 between 1 July and the end of the year will be classified as Year 0.
  2. There is a need to be flexible to ensure provision of students needs.  Retention/promotion discussions should be generally restricted to students whose birthdays occur in April and May.
  3. All students’ learning needs are to be catered for. 

Conclusion

Decisions concerning placement, retention or promotion of students should be made after consultation between Principal, teachers, senior staff and other related services.  Parents will then be notified and invited to discuss the decision with the senior staff and Principal before a final decision is made.  All students should have success at whatever level they are at.
