Discipline Policy- Punishment is different from Discipline. We want everyone in our school to watch their own discipline, to have self discipline. However if a student will not control his/her own behaviour, it is brought to the notice of the Grade Advisor and then the respective Supervisors. After three Oral/Written warnings this is forwarded to the Student Counselor, who may need to talk with them. Generally an informal talk or warning from the Academic Co-ordinator is all that is required at AAPS.
In the unlikely event that a student deliberately chooses to continue to act improperly then a penalty may sadly be required. Penalties may include - a stern reprimand by the Supervisor who may also remove privileges, exclude from class/sports/extra-curricular, and give detention or home-assignments. Restoration for damage will be required.
For serious or constant issues, a parent conference will be arranged with the Student Counselor and the Principal. Suspension from AAPS is very serious and will be done in accordance with the Ministry of Education (expulsion is a last resort after all other options have been explored)
Reasons for penalties include – bullying, vandalism, inappropriate language, violent or disruptive behaviour, deception, stealing, illegal substances, truancy and behaving dangerously.
