Student Pass/Fail Policy

1. Rationale:
Green Park School has all children’s best interest at heart. Every child learns at a different pace and it is therefore important to take this into account throughout, and especially towards the end of each academic year.
Should a child not meet the required year standard, or displays severe learning difficulties, Green Park School reserves the right to hold the child back from moving on to the next year group, and the child will repeat their present year group.

2. Applicable to:
• All students from Year 3 to Year 6 who do not meet the expected level of grade (45%) in Mathematics and English in their final assessment in Term 3.
• All students who have an attendance less than 80% throughout an academic year.
Note: Absences which are excused (doctor’s note, leave request form) will not be taken into account.

3. Parental involvement:
All teaching staff at Green Park School is committed to update all parents on a regular basis on their child’s academic progress. Parents of children who are in danger of failing their year group in an academic year will be called to discuss their children’s progress well in advance, but latest towards the end of the second term, so that the necessary support can be given and children are given the opportunity to improve in the areas addressed to meet the required expectations for the year group.

4. Policy Review:
This policy is subject to annual review
