Reports and Examinations

In the Primary School conventional examinations are replaced by continuous assessment. The child is under the constant observation of the class teacher who is warmly interested in his or her progress. The aim of teachers is to avoid the stress factor of exams which can do real harm in young pupils. Creative involvement in work provides the key to motivation, rather competitive accomplishment that separates winners from losers. Children who experience learning difficulties receive assistance to be able to remain in their age group as far as possible.

The teachers continuously assess the child’s work and behaviour in all spheres of school life, including academic progress and keep records of this. This is summarized in an in-depth written report, given to the parents at the end of the year in the Primary School. In the High School detailed reports are given bi- annually or at the end of each term.
