  • Irregularity in attending school is a major disruptive force in a student’s life. It leads to a lack of sustained interest in studies. It also isolates a student from her companions for she misses opportunities for shared work and fun. Hence, the school takes a serious view of parents who do not ensure their ward’s regular attendance.
  •  Students are accountable to the school authorities for their behaviour both in school and out of school, particularly when they are in their school uniform.
  • Parents of students are expected to regularly check with the class teacher about the behaviour of their wards.
  • Attendance: As per the CBSE circular in September 2010, 75% attendance during the academic year is required and no relaxation of any kind will be granted to a student who does not fulfil the school as well as the board requirements for all classes. If the child does not meet this criteria she will not be allowed to sit for the year end examination.
  • If a student is found outside the school premises during working hours without the written permission of the school authorities, the Principal will be forced to take strict disciplinary action which, if deemed fit by the management, may lead to expulsion
  • Leave of absence is granted on a written application from parents or guardians but only for serious reasons.
  • If any student absents herself for more than a week without intimating the school about the reason for absence, her name will be struck off the roll. Readmission has to be sought if the child has to return to the class.
  • It is also compulsory to attend all school functions.
  • Appointments with doctors, dentists and other medical personnel must not be arranged during school hours.
  • It is compulsory for a student who is absent for a day to bring a leave note addressed to the Principal/Headmistress and signed by the student’s parent/guardian. If the absence is due to a long illness/contagious disease, a doctor’s fitness certificate is essential, in addition to the leave letter.
  • Children suffering from measles, Chicken pox and other infectious diseases should not be sent to school until the quarantine period is over.
  • Measles – 11 days from the day of onset of cold and fever;
  • Chicken Pox – 2 weeks after rash appears and till the crust has completely fallen off.
    This is a preventive measure to protect your child and the spread of the disease in the school. Serious action will be taken if a child with fever, measles, chicken pox or any other contagious disease is sent to school.

Discipline is the continual exercise of the will, enlightened by the intellect, so that it may act easily and habitually according to the right order and help to attain self-mastery”.
