At CMRNPS, we strongly believe that parents are partners in the growth and development of their children. We encourage parents to help their child gain independence through new explorations beyond school. Nutrition and adequate rest are crucial to every child’s academic, physical, mental, emotional and social development, and parents must ensure that their children are receiving the same.
We welcome parents who actively encourage the school, its teachers and their child in the journey of learning. Here are a few guidelines for our parent community:
1) Parent-Teachers Meetings: Parents and Guardians may meet the school authorities by prior appointment on any working day. Our contact number is +91 80 25440693. Parents can meet the class or subject teachers on days mentioned in the visiting schedule. They must refrain from criticism of the student’s teacher or the school in his/her presence. This will avoid unnecessary bias and prevent uncomfortable situations.
Teachers at CMRNPS are approachable and are here to guide the students at all times. We expect that parents will be partners in this process. If you have any legitimate grievance, please meet the Principal / Vice Principal.
2) Discipline: They are requested to co-operate with the school authorities in enforcing discipline. Please make sure the child attends school regularly, does his home assignments, devotes sufficient time for revision at home and takes interest in all co-curricular activities.
3) Medical Emergencies: The school has a Health Care Centre to take care of emergencies. However, students who suffer from any specific ailment should carry their medicine along with the dosage details and instructions to inform the class teacher about it.
4) Keep us informed: We expect our parents to keep the school updated on any changes in the child’s record. Parents must make it a point to check and sign the diary, notebooks, report cards, notices the teachers may send for their perusal. They should use blue or black ink. Whenever answer scripts, diary notes and report cards are sent home, parents are requested to sign the same and return within a day. Any loss or damage to the school property must be made good by the parents/guardians.
5) Verify Information: It has come to our notice that some parents are part of online communities over platforms such as Whatsapp, Google and Facebook wherein many sensitive issues about children and teachers are openly discussed. We strongly discourage such communities wherein the intention of our school’s collaborative and open culture is negated. Sometimes, one or two members of these groups spread panic based on false information causing disruption to our students. We request our parents to verify with us immediately, in case of such information.
6) Fees: Schedule for the school fee payment will need to be adhered to. Late fees could invite a penalty, including discontinuation in severe cases.
7) Tuition: As a policy, we discourage external tuition for all our students. In some rare cases, the teachers might specifically recommend it for the student based on requirement or performance.
8) Transport: Parents of students using the school bus must intimate the reception if they wish to pick-up their ward after school hours. The school buses will follow specific routes & specific pick up points which cannot be altered to the convenience of each student. You can read about our transportation guidelines here.
For certain intra-school competitions, parents may have to drop and pick-up their ward.
9) Children and Technology: Digital technologies have become integral to the lives of children, both within school and outside school. At our school, we believe that these technologies, provided and monitored in the right manner, can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and stimulate awareness of context to promote effective learning. At CMRNPS, we provide students with a school email ID that is used as a means for constant academic communication through use of certain safe web-based tools for sharing documents, forms, assignments etc. Further, as part routine academic research, students will also be expected to access few resources (articles, videos, images, and blogs) on the web, both at school and back at home.
