Academic Policy

Academic Policy

We believe that children work hard enough in the school. They should have the opportunity to relax, engage in activities of their choice and have quality family time after school. We don’t give regular homework but recapitulation and occasional home projects to complete with their families so as to enhance our thematic units and build on the home school connection.

Assessments allow the instructor to determine if the students are meeting and exceeding the goals of education. It’s a tool to gather critical information about a child’s development and growth for both parents and educators.

SEI Pre-primary follows a 3-way path of evaluating children.
  • Two formative and summative tests are held in an academic year.
  • Surprise assessments are conducted to know the understanding of children without giving an opportunity for repeated practice.
  • Interim evaluations are conducted to glean the students’ understanding of the subject matter and sharing of knowledge with other staff members.

Pre-Primary progress reports are provided to parents once in every quarter for the academic year. Parents are invited to conference with the child’s teacher on the 4th Saturday of every month. Performance report can also be accessed through InSeight App. (click the link below to download the app).

SEI accepts students with a wide range of academic abilities. Some students need extra academic assistance at various points during their school years. The ARP at SEI is designed to assist students when they have trouble turning in their assignments on time, producing quality assignments or are failing to perform at a passing level on assessments. Additionally, students may be placed on ARP when they are first admitted to SEI, following an extended absence, or when they need close monitoring for a variety of reasons.

SEI’s ARP Advisers will work closely with students in a step by step process by setting up Individual Meetings, Planning Sessions and Personal Counseling to help the child. ARP is always temporary, and the goal is to get the students to be able to independently handle academics on their own.
