Our Guiding Principles

- The most important years of the growth of a child are the first six years. Children learn to initiate things on their own. They are more open to change, growth and new experiences. They’re ready to get more out of life itself.
- Every child is gifted in some way. A rich, stimulating environment allows each child to bring forth his or her own special talents and abilities.
- Interaction between children in a non-formal environment makes the young ones outspoken and smart.

4. School Policies
a. Attendance Policies
Students are not allowed to leave the school compound for any reason unless they have prior permission from the Head Teachers concerned. For special permission to leave school early due to medical appointments, written requests should reach the Head Teacher before the commencement of classes on a particular day.
Any student who is absent for more than 5% of the total number of working days in a Term may not be eligible to take the tests or exams for that term. These include excused as well as unexcused absences. Special provisions can be made for students with prolonged illnesses. A medical certificate must be produced before the child returns to the school. Students must submit letters of absence to their Head Teachers before they resume their classes. The letters should clearly state the reason for absence.
If a student continues to be absent for more than a week without giving information to the Head Teacher, his/her name will be struck off the rolls, and the student has to be readmitted. The school will not arrange special tests or exams missed due to absence. Irregular attendance, unjustified or unexplained absence and habitual late coming and objectionable behavior of any kind may result in the removal of a boy/girl from the school.
Policies regarding Assignments
• Students are expected to do homework which includes written and oral work. Homework serves three important purposes:
To reinforce and supplement skills taught in class.
b. To share a student’s progress with parents.
c. To develop proper study habits for future growth. Parents are requested to go through their children’s diaries and ensure that they do their homework regularly.
• A student returning from an illness or absence must meet his or her teachers on the day he/she resumes school to find out how much has been covered in class during his/her absence. Students who remain absent are responsible for finding out the homework either from their teachers or other students in their class. A student must submit all assigned work immediately upon return. It is the student’s/parent’s responsibility not the teachers’ to make sure that all missed work due to absence is completed.
• If an assignment is not submitted on time, the student will get zero for that assignment.
• Students should develop the habit of doing their homework regularly.

The rest is left to the students to complete at home. At home, the students are expected to learn, revise and practice the lessons and skills taught in class. Parents/Guardians should supervise students’ homework and ensure that the students complete the work assigned to them.

Students who are weak in studies can also attend these classes.

This is to help the parents to assess the capabilities of their wards and take necessary steps should they be required.
Parents are requested to analyze the performance of their children by going through their report cards. They should discuss the problems with their wards and provide them with additional help should it be necessary.

The school provides transport facilities only to those who opt for it. It is not mandatory to avail the bus services. The school tries its level best to cater to the needs of the children. However, it is unable to fulfill its commitments in circumstances beyond its control. In case of unforeseen circumstances like public demonstrations and severe traffic dislocation, parents should come to the school to collect their wards. They are requested to bear with the delays caused by break-downs or other mechanical problems.
The school will remain closed on days when there is a total bandh and there is no transport on the roads. The school will remain open on days when there is a partial transport strike affecting public bus and minibus service only. On such days, parents/guardians are expected to make their own arrangement to bring their children to school and take them back after the classes are over.
vi. Academic Ethics
If a school is to be a learning community that functions effectively, it must place its highest values on personal integrity and mutual trust. Without these, no real learning can take place. While we highly value patience and tolerance, we must become intolerant of those, who cannot be trusted and who do not value truth, for they can quickly destroy the spirit of the community and learning. It is because of this we take severe action in cases of dishonesty of any kind, but particularly in cases in which dishonesty invades the classroom. Cases of this kind are dealt with by the teacher and brought to the attention of the Principal.
vii. Code of Conduct
Cheating can be defined as an act intended to deceive. It is not only dishonest and morally wrong but also gives a false impression of a student’s progress and makes assessment of a student’s work impossible. For these reasons, cheating of any kind is not tolerated. The school believes that integrity is more important than academic excellence. It reserves the right to penalize students who use unfair means.
Students found cheating in exams, tests, homework are given the lowest grade. They are immediately sent to the principal and their parents are informed about this serious breach of academic integrity. A student may either be suspended or expelled from school if he/she is found using unfair means.
viii. Expectations from Students

- Suggestions and voluntary services are always appreciated from the parents.
- Parents/Guardians must supervise their child’s studies at home.
This should be done every day in order to avoid the pressure of revision immediately before the exams. It is practically impossible to revise all the lessons in class before every round of examination due to time constraints and the volume of the syllabus.
