Beyond Grades: The Holistic Progress Card by Podar Prep

Beyond Grades: The Holistic Progress Card by Podar Prep

At Podar Prep Preschool, we believe that every child is unique, and their progress should be measured beyond traditional grades. That’s why we’ve introduced the Holistic Progress Card (HPC), a comprehensive tool that provides a 360-degree view of your child’s development. In this blog, we’ll take you on a journey through the HPC, showing you how it goes beyond grades to capture the essence of your child’s educational experience.

Understanding the Holistic Progress Card (HPC)

The HPC is a multidimensional report that delves deep into your child’s progress in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains. It encompasses various aspects, including self-assessment, project-based learning, quizzes, role plays, group work, portfolios, and teacher assessments. It’s not just a report card; it’s a window into your child’s growth and learning journey.

A Bridge Between Home and School

We understand the importance of involving parents in their children’s education. The HPC serves as a bridge between home and school. It’s accompanied by parent-teacher meetings, known as Portfolio meets, where parents actively participate in understanding and supporting their child’s holistic development. It’s a collaborative effort to ensure your child’s success.

The ‘All About Me’ Section

The HPC begins with the ‘All About Me’ section, where we document essential details like your child’s age, height, weight, and a photograph. These details help us monitor your child’s physical, personal, and social development throughout the year. It’s a valuable tool for tracking their progress.

‘By Teacher’ and ‘By Me’ Sections

The ‘By Teacher’’ section is a developmental-based assessment conducted across seven domains of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in line with NCF 2022. Our teachers observe your child daily, marking their developmental progress. It helps us identify areas where your child excels and where they may need more support.

The ‘By Me’ section encourages your child to express their thoughts and feelings through creative drawings. They illustrate aspects of their life, including family, interests, and friends. These drawings offer insights into their cognitive and imaginative capabilities.

Parent-Teacher Conference Notes

This section highlights positive discussions between teachers, parents, and your child. It focuses on your child’s strengths, areas for improvement, and the way forward, both at home and in school. It’s a collaborative effort to ensure your child’s growth and development.

‘Me and My Friends’

This section features your child’s class photo, serving as a wonderful memory of their friends and teacher. It helps your child stay connected to the friends they’ve made during the academic year.

We believe in nurturing ‘conscious learning.’ The NCF-2022 suggests introducing self-assessment to help learners monitor their own learning trajectory. At Podar Prep, we’re implementing self-assessment parameters, such as assessing their enjoyment or satisfaction with activities using emojis. This encourages your child to take an active role in their learning journey.


The Holistic Progress Card at Podar Prep goes beyond traditional grading systems. It’s a comprehensive tool that reflects your child’s unique journey and development. We’re committed to providing holistic education that empowers your child for a brighter future.
