Code of Conduct For Parents
At Bal Bharati Public School, MB Anuppur, we are very fortunate to have supportive and friendly parents. Our parents recognize that educating children is a process that involves partnership between home and school and understand the importance of a good working relationship to equip children with the necessary skills for adulthood. For these reasons we welcome and encourage parents/visitors to participate fully in the life of our school & advise them to follow the code of conduct as under:-
1- Respect the Principles of our school.
2- Adhere to school rules with respect to visit timing/security.
3- Ensure you carry a visitor’s pass to avoid unnecessary inconvenience to yourself. No entry of a visitor is permitted without a visitor’s pass.
4 Don’t criticize or belittle the school/teachers in presence of your child/in public.
5- Dignity should be maintained in the manner of dress when visiting the school.

10- Be courteous to the school staff & polite in your interaction with anyone in the school.
11- The time of leaving the premises depends on the extra activities carried out by each student. Parents should get prior information from the children on these activities so as to avoid any concern or anxiety regarding their delayed return from school.
12- Parents have to report to Security, get a visitor’s pass and sign in a register while entering the campus.
13- Prior appointment should be obtained from the office, for parents to visit if other than for planned meetings such as Parent-Teachers meeting.
14- If a parent has been called by the school, it is very important for them to report in the front office. No parents are allowed to go directly to meet the teachers.
15- Parents are not allowed to go to the classrooms directly.
16- Parents on other days other than the PT meetings have to report at the office before they want to meet the principal or teachers.
With this guide in place it is hoped that parents can appropriately direct their concerns and contribute to a harmonious environment that reflects and builds on the School’s core beliefs and values.
