SCHOOL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (SCHOOL SOFT 13.1 {5513.1})

 

The BGES School (ICSE) is run through fully automated management system commonly known as SS

13.1 in conjunction with its website thebgesschool.com. Each student has an individual profile which can be accessed through personalised ID and password issued to each student at the time of admission. All information with students records are available. The student is able to interact with the school through this personal portal, be it for paying fees and various other charges, request for absence from school, request for participation in various activities, request for transfer Certificate, apology letter and various other functions. Also through a special tab 'Contact Us', through which the parents can send their queries to the school. Combined with this is the Notice Board on the school Web site which is kept updated at all times. The school has integrated Email sending and SMS messaging to the SS 13.1 facilitating a smooth flow of information to the students and guardians. All this has been done in view to minimise the requirement of parents and guardians to visit school for small administrative problems.

 

 

 

SCHOOL DIARY

 

Each student is issued one school diary for each Academic Year. The diary contains all the important rules and regulations along with the school calendar of events and guidelines. During the year the student record is maintained in the Diary. All Parents/ guardians are requested to familiarize themselves thoroughly with contents of the school diary. The School Diary is the property of the school and must always be kept safely. Loss must be immediately reported to the school. A new school Diary may be issued on payment of Rs. 150/- (One Hundred Fifty only which includes Cost and Fine.)

Each year on the 1st day of the Academic year and on a scheduled day as per the School Calendar the salient points of the School Diary are explained to the students and parents of newly admitted students respectively.

Deliberate loss/ defacing to destroy remarks noted in any page is a serious breach of discipline. Such students will not be allowed in school till the School Diary is found or defacing undone.


HOUSE SYSTEM

 

The school has four houses named after famous national leaders Tagore (represented by the colour Yellow), Patel (represented by the colour Red), Nehru (represented by the colour Green) and Gandhi (represented by the colour Blue).

The resultant effect thereof is evident from the healthy competitive spirit that is ushered in between the said houses / Students.

The House system has great advantages of breaking a large community into smaller, more personal units, and thereby building a sense of loyalty and healthy competition.

We seek to install values and have our students emulate them though our House System. Each student and staff member is placed in a "House" in The BGES School ( ICSE), remains in the House until they leave.

Each House has an even distribution of varied groups, cultures, boys and girls.

 

The goals of the House System are to :

Promote healthy participation and competition in many activities.

 

Provide opportunities for students from all cultures to interact and collaborate in a positive, constructive manner.

To inspire students to adopt the ideals and philosophies of the people after whom the houses are named, and to lead and contribute to the society in similar ways.

Benefits of the House System:

Student Focus : each student is treated as an individual not just one more student in a large group.

 

A caring, supportive environment: each student becomes a valued member of a small 'family unit' within a larger 'family' within the whole school.

Respect, consideration and courtesy: Support for the vast majority of our students who already want to learn and behave.

Positive self esteem amongst students and value of the ethos of the school community. Equality of opportunity and encouragement to realize an individual's full potential. Building of an individual's strength within a group and bonds with other students of all ages. Peer support to combat bullying.

 

Promotion of the 'Student Voice,' Student Responsibility, Team skills, Leadership skills and Co-operation. Extra-Curricular activities which enrich broaden and round off the experience of our students. Development of personal and social skills and well-being.


PREFECTORIAL SYSTEM

 

Definition:- Prefect (from the Latin Praefectus, " make in front," i.e. put in charge). In context of schools, a prefect is a pupil who has been given a limited authority over the other pupils in school. This system helps the students to develop a sense of responsibility towards their juniors. It also helps them to develop leadership qualities.

Students who can set an example for others in discipline, academics, sports & extra-curricular activities & co-curricular activities are selected as prefects. All the prefects are from the senior classes and true to their adage - Example is better than Precept.

 

INTRODUCTION TO THE PREFECTURAL SYSTEM:-

The BGES School Prefect System:

The BGES School Prefect system was derived from the prefect concept of student government traditions in the public schools of Great Britain and many college preparatory schools in this country. Prefects enforce rules & regulations, while setting a good example, and serve on various committees providing them with extended experience in the responsibility and exercise of leadership.

 

The broadest concept of leadership is projected in the Prefectural System. The school expects all prefects to uphold the integrity & traditions of academics with dignity, good humour and sustained effort in all ways, at all times and in all places.

The System :

All the students of the school belong to one of the four houses i.e. Gandhi, Nehru, Patel & Tagore. This house system forms an integral part of our school. It helps to co-ordinate various activities and leads to the building up of esprit de corps and camaraderie of a lasting nature among students. Each house is placed under a House Master/ Mistress, who is directly responsible for the selection and grooming of the members of the house for the various competitions. House prefects take the responsibility of the overall discipline of the school on rotation basis.

School appointment includes the Headboy and the Headgirl followed by the Prefects and then the Captains and Vice-Captains.

The Headboy and the Headgirl are the roles of prominent papillary responsibility. They are responsible for representing the school at events, and therefore must be able to make public speeches. They are also expected to lead the fellow prefects in their duties. They are the ones who take the sole responsibility to look onto the day-to-day management of the prefects as well as looking after the school and creating a link between the teachers and the pupils.

The House Prefect is guided in his/her tasks by a team of teachers. Regular Inter-House competitions in various co-curricular and extra- curricular activities are held throughout the year, aimed at fostering healthy rivalry and a competitive spirit. Houses compete with each other to keep the house flag high and win the trophy.

The Prefectural System forms the backbone of the life in the school. Initiatives and capabilities of individual students are continuously watched and those with inherent or cultivated leadership qualities are selected as prefects.


 

Importance of being a Prefect :

Prefects are chosen by the teachers because of their character and leadership qualities. If a student is responsible, industrious, firm and relatively good in his studies, he should make a good prefect. Though being a prefect is prestigious, it comes with a lot of responsibilities. A prefect's responsibility is not limited to the specific duties of his position. All prefects are expected:

To be the ultimate example for both peers and juniors in terms of behaviour and dress. Be supportive in all House Events, participating in as many as possible.

Be sure that the House members support teams in a positive and supportive way. Help staff in updating the House Board.

SCHOOL GUIDELINES FOR INTERNAL ASSESSMENT

(classes 5- 8)

 

 

General Guidelines for all classes & Specific instructions for Classes 5- 8 (w.e.f . 01 Apr 2013)

An internal assessment is a continuous and comprehensive process of evaluation conducted during an ongoing academic session, to promote and facilitate the learning process through an active participation by students with a passive yet advisory role being adopted by the teachers. The primary objectives of the internal assessment are:

         To integrate the process of teaching and evaluation.

         To test inherent skills and analytical abilities of the students that cannot be substituted by a written examination.

         To continuously formulate innovative ideas in a congenial environment.

         To encourage the active participation of students in self-assessment of their thinking skills.

         To promote inter and intra personal skills between students and teachers for effective communication.

         To co-ordinate a teacher's role as a mentor and guide.

To ensure better comprehension and sincerity towards their studies, it has been decided that w.e.f 01 Jul 2019, for all subjects, all written homework as scheduled in the time table for classes 5 to 10, will be assessed and marked. Only those homework that are submitted on the next day or as per date of submission given by the teacher, will be considered. Non submission or absence will be awarded ZERO. At the end of each term, the accumulation of Homework marks will be brought down to be equivalent of 50% of total internal assessment for the term and added to balance 50% marks obtained in project / practical work to form total marks for Internal Assessment.

 

20 % marks in each of the evaluation is to be allotted for internal assessment based purely on one of the criteria given below or a combination of more than one criteria as per subject and teacher's discretion.

 

1.      Unit / periodical class tests (allowed only in 1st term and that to by exception only)

2.      Practical

3.      Project Group / sub group / individual

4.      Activity based learning

 

Minimum one each of such above assessment required to be recorded for 1st Term Evaluation and Annual Evaluation respectively. Please understand the terminology given in the Council Internal Assessment Guidelines.

 

The internal assessment need not be always submitted as a written project individually, as also the submission of written work may be allowed on CD instead of register / folder.

 

Generally for the 1st Term Evaluation, the projects may be based on group / sub groups to be oral / aural / multimedia presented and do not please forget presentation through performing arts.

Also consider reaching out to the other teachers and subjects to try and achieve integration through common projects. You may give common projects but the output of students should clearly show the work of two subjects. For example a History Project on The Battle of the Buldge can be clubbed with an English project on The Charge of The Light Brigade.

 

In fact the following guidelines for the selection of assignments should be adhered:

a)     The competency, knowledge and the skill levels of the students should be properly identified as that is imperative in the selection of an appropriate assignment to facilitate their all-round development.


b)     On the day of the Practical Evaluation if a child is absent, he/she shall be awarded 0 (zero) for the Practical Test but will get marks for Laboratory Manual/Project File (Applicable to other subjects where ever practical is part of internal assessment for all classes.)

c)     An assignment should be so selected to have a broad range of topics to facilitate students to use imaginative contexts and demonstrate original lines of approach.

d)      Easy availability of required inputs / resources that facilitate the assignment progress.

e)     An assignment to encompass the reinforcement of existing class room knowledge, while imbibing a scope for future reference / research.

f)      An assignment should be so selected so as to encourage active group participation that ensures coordination, co- operation and time management resulting in effective team building.

 

Selection of an assignment should have the following broader perspectives :

 

A)     OBJECTIVES

An assignment should be so selected that should involve the student's benefit with regards to their future applications and must also be directly or indirectly co-related with the class room teaching. This will not only assess the cognitive skills through the application based methods but will also promulgate the investigative role of the students in the learning process.

 

B)     PLANNING

Students must be encouraged in planning the assignment by exploring a range of contexts, identifying resources and subsequent tools of preparation needed for the assignment. The teacher to ensure all possible support and co-operation towards planning and execution of the assignment. The assignment should be so planned that it should be completed as a part of the normal classroom activity to enable the students to realize the objectives in a congenial environment.

 

C)     METHODOLOGY

It should be so formulated or adopted as per the needs and requirements of the given assignment taking the help of the multimedia and internet based technology as and when required.

 

D)     PRINCIPLES OF A GOOD ASSESSMENT

A good assessment and evaluation is such that it not only influences and enhances future teaching and learning processes, but also explores the creative process of thinking, reflects the imaginative thinking, and must optimize the existing potential skills of students.

Thus this forum should not only be used to improve the learning skills of the students but to improve the teacher's own creative and thinking skills/inputs. It should be used as a chance to bring about change that you have always wanted, to do it your way.

For languages consider book reviews both oral and written. Also try to incorporate the assessment system as laid down for classes 9 and 10.

Project compilation should be done in the class room. Preparatory/Preliminary/Collection of data may be done at home.

In view of the above, projects should be closely related to learning skills to gain knowledge by the students with regards to the topics in the syllabus.

Class design:

Has a suitable class (or classes) been used?

Are all attributes with the right kinds of types present? Is encapsulation properly done?

Is the interface properly designed?

 

Coding and Documentation:

Is the coding done properly? (choice of names, no unconditional jumps, proper organization of conditions, proper choice of loops, error handling code layout). Is the documentation complete and readable? (class documentation, variable documentation, method documentation, constraints, known bugs - if any).

 

Variable and Description Format for variable description:

 

Name of the variable

Data Type

Purpose/Description

 

 

 

 

Execution or Output:

Recent research in school education indicates that a major issue and cause for concern among students in schools is bullying. Bullying/ ragging is a damaging feature in schools. Nature of bullying can be, diverse and complex. Bullying can be directly from the bully to the victim (eg, through physical intimidation or attacks, verbal abuse, unwanted attention and advances, damaging property), or it can be indirect (eg, through spreading malicious rumours). It can also include cyber-bullying (eg, sending unpleasant sms messages, photographs or emails, to the victim or to others).

 

Bullying has severe detrimental effects on those who are bullied. The effects can be immediate. They can also be long-term and can cause lifelong damage. In every bullying situation, there are typically three key parties: THE VICTIM, THE BULLY OR BULLIES, AND THOSE WHO STAND BY, WHO ARE AWARE OF THE

BULLYING. Each of these three parties is affected negatively by bullying .

 

The responsibility of preventing any undesirable aspect of bullying and ragging rests jointly and also individually on Head of the institution, Teachers, non- teaching staff, the students and the parents.

The methods of intervention are as important as methods of prevention. School's decision, taken after following process of fair investigation, should not be ordinarily challenged. Penalties which may be taken by the School Management as per observation and understanding the gravity of the misconduct are as follows:


a)       Oral/written warning.

b)       Suspension from attending classes/school for a specified period.

c)       Withholding or cancelling the results.

d)       Imposition of fine up to a specified amount

e)       Expulsion/rustication from school in rarest of rare cases.

 

THE HEADS OF THE INSTITUTION, ALL STUDENTS, TEACHING AND NON-TEACHING STAFF AND PARENTS MUST BE ENGAGED IN THE EFFORT AGAINST BULLYING ON A CONTINUAL BASIS, AS PART OF THE MORAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE FABRIC OF THE SCHOOL.

 

PRIVATE TUITIONS

Teachers are forbidden to give private tuitions to the students of The BGES School (ICSE) No students/ Guardians may approach any staff member for conduct of tuitions of individual or collective classes.

The parent will have to deposit Rs. 300/- in the bank, per kit (effective every time it is issued, which will cover the cost of Kit plus a nominal fine.
