Progression and Promotion
Progression from grade to grade through this phase within the appropriate age cohort should be the accepted norm, unless the learner displays a lack of competence to cope with the following grade’s work.
A learner, who is not ready to perform at the next level, should be assessed to determine the level of support required.
With regards to retention, parents are informed that their child is not meeting the minimum requirements. Regular meetings are held with radar learners’ parents.
Grade discusses intervention strategies. Documentation is filled in for retention of learners.
The following are guidelines to determine whether a learner should be permitted to progress from Grade 1 to 2 and from Grade 2 to 3 in the Foundation Phase:
(a) Adequate Achievement (Level 4) (50%-59%) in one official language at Home Language level
(b) Moderate Achievement (Level 3) (40%-49%) in the second required official language at First Additional Language level
