The school rules should be read and understood together with the school ethos, which states our ideal of a school member. If we try our best to live up to this ethos, then we will avoid behaviour that causes difficulties for others.
These rules should be innate - as in most families - however a clear statement of the rules and the consequences of breaking them may be helpful. We aim to encourage responsible self-awareness and to promote loving and collective Sahaja behaviour.
'Out of bounds' means not only being outside the school without permission but also not being where you should be. The following are 'out of bounds'.
>> Not being in lessons, activities, homework, footsoak or meditation without a validated excuse (sick-note etc.)
>> Being outside the dormitory after bedtime.
>> Going outside the school boundary without permission.
>> Going into the kitchen, sick room, staff room or offices without permission.
>> Climbing on the roofs, in or out of windows, or up walls, drainpipes etc..
Gating. The consequence of being 'out of bounds' is that a student may be 'gated' - ie. having to be signed in by a teacher every half-hour on Saturday and/or Sunday. More serious cases, such as going to McLeod Gang or Dharamshala alone, may result in gating for a month, and receiving an official warning.
Any bad language or disrespectful behaviour to a member of staff or other students will be taken seriously. This includes:
>> Arguments and answering back to the staff.
>> Failing to obey a direct order from a member of staff.
Behaviour towards others that is dominating, physically or verbally unpleasant or malicious is classified as bullying, Extortion (demanding sweets or pocket money with threats) is a particularly serious form of bullying.
Persistent bullying will lead to the perpetrator receiving an official warning, which will be notified to the parents. If a child receives three warnings in any one term, they will be asked to leave the school.
>> Intentional breakages to school property (including school uniform) will be paid for out of children's pocket money.
>> Anyone damaging or defacing the bedroom cupboards, desks or benches in classroom or anywhere else will have to pay the cost of repainting or repairing the item.
>> Children will also be required to clear up the mess and/or help repair property they have damaged.
>> All students must wear school uniform up until afternoon break from Monday to Friday and up to lunchtime on Saturday.

>> More than one earring in each ear for girls and long earrings (except Pujas)
