SCHOOL POLICY

Parent and student guide regarding school rules and regulations
Behavior reflects the academic and social progress of a student. We expect our students to behave at all times in a manner that reflects the culture, traditions and beliefs of our society and is conductive to a positive working environment. The administration and staff of Mahila Seva Samaja School believe that it is important to encourage and reinforce positive behavioural patterns and to discourage negative behavioural patterns, and rely upon parental support and cooperation to accomplish this objective.

Say NO to violence

We emphasise the importance of non-violence. Pushing, swearing, shoving, biting, hitting and kicking each other are unacceptable, even if done in fun. Physical assault will be dealt with severely, by suspension. It is very important that parents discuss this policy with their child(ren). The school needs parental support in this endeavour.
If a child is found bullying a child physically or mentally, the child will be counselled by the Class Teacher, Coordinator and Counsellor. If this behaviour continues, the child will be suspended and asked to leave the school.
Children cannot use any type of social networking sites to malign their friends, teachers and the school. If any child is found doing this, the immediate consequence is suspension from the school.

We request parent’s cooperation for the following:

  • Do not send expensive and excess stationery or send things that are not allowed by the school and if found with the child, same will be confiscated.
  • Parents are requested to approach the school for any student related incidents or queries. If there is a misunderstanding or fight amongst children, the same has to be brought to the notice of the school and please do not approach or deal with the issue directly with parents. We are doing this solely to avoid conflicts.
  • Parents should report to the front office if they need to pick up their children in case of emergency. Parents are not allowed to go to the classrooms directly.
  • There will be no refund of money (excursion, external exams etc) after the last date for withdrawal.
  • No last minute request for leave will be entertained unless it is an emergency. Two days notice to avail leave is required.
  • Parents are hereby informed that carrying of mobile phones or any other electronic gadgets is strictly prohibited in school and confiscated if a child has it and will never be returned.

The following consequences have been established for non compliance of any of the above rules & instructions
