ASSESSMENT Progression of the children will be monitored by school arranged assessments on the RAD Syllabus and class work. These will result in a medal & certificate from Andrea Mannion Dance School and not the RAD. RAD exams will be considered for anyone wishing to do so with the necessary extra classes, preferably from Grade 3 upwards, or by request. Examinations are not compulsory but are offered to each class when appropriate. Please encourage your child to practice at home and attend regularly.
Poor attendance leads to lack of confidence & disruption to individual & class progress.
