All of the learning suggestions are important .But some are essential .According to a survey of 10,000 Elementary and Middle School principals, the most important ways that the parents can help their children learn:
All of these behaviors were rated essential or highly desirable by at least 85 percent of the principals surveyed. They cut across all categories of the survey and are listed in order of priority.
Parent Teacher Interaction is an important and integral part of the child's holistic development. At Parampara Academy, we recognize that continued collaboration between the teachers and the parents is an essential component and is duly maintained. In view of the above, organized interaction as well as interactions through appointments are conducted.
Organized Parents-Teacher Interaction is conducted as per a pre-intimated schedule.
Apart from the planned interactions, the parents may be called for feedback, discussion and interaction by the Principal or the teachers. The parents can also meet the Principal or the teacher on any working day during the school hours after an appointment through phone or mail. In addition, the Principal or the teacher may interact with the parent in person, through a note in this handbook or through phone.
Phone no of the teachers will not be made available to the parents. It is only official. Parents can talk to the Principal, only during the office hours.
The day-to-day communication with the parents is through the student's almanac. Read the notes written by the teachers in the academy almanac and acknowledge the circulars that are sent home.
In case, any parent wishes to raise an issue of concern which is of unpleasant or confidential in nature, he / she could speak to the Principal through phone or meet him in person or mail the concerns to the personal id of the Principal: firstname.lastname@example.org. The matter will be addressed and the parents will be intimated of the actions taken or issues corrected.
Student's attendance is the key to eﬀective learning. Absence from Academy has a substantial negative eﬀect on the performance. Hence, the student needs to be in class every day, on time.
If a child is going to be absent from academy, the parent / guardian is expected to contact the office explaining the reason and the length of time the student is expected to be on leave. This can be done through phone, email, or SMS and submit the written note one week prior to going on leave. In case of emergency, where the child has not informed, on returning child has to carry a filled record of absence in the student’s almanac.
A small number of absences may be justified if your child:
In case of illness beyond three days, a medical certificate from a Registered Medical Practitioner for the period of absence has to be submitted to the academy. Parents are requested to plan their vacation / program in such a way that it coincides with the holidays of the academy.
Leave will not be granted on the days of tests / examinations except for extreme compassionate / unavoidable circumstances. The parent has to intimate such absence in advance except in case of illness. Students are expected to attend the academy on the last working day and on reopening day after every vacation.
It is compulsory for students to complete 80% attendance every semester to make them eligible for the semester exams. Continued absence without leave or unexplained absence for more than two weeks at a stretch, without prior permission from the Principal, will tantamount to student having left the academy.
As soon as the children enter the academy grounds their safety and security is one of our priorities. Students will abide by the academy rules and ensure all safety precautions.
The Academy has a medical room where the student can rest in case of any illness during the academy hours and First Aid will be provided if needed, otherwise Parents will be informed of the situation at the earliest and will be requested to come and pick up the child
Annual Medical Examinations will be conducted once a year and a report forwarded to the parent for follow up, in case, recommended by the Doctor.
Do not send your child to academy when he / she is suﬀering from an infectious disease.

Note: Students are not encouraged to arrive an hour before the academy start time or stay back after the academy ends.
Our discipline policies set out a balanced approach recognizing the deep connections between student's achievement, conduct and behaviour. They are based on developing student's responsibilities, encouraging respect and creating good conditions for eﬀective teaching and learning. The academy's discipline policy aims to be the foundation for a safe, happy and productive learning environment.
