Policies

School Timings

School timings vary from campus to campus. Please visit your desired campus page here to view specific timings of each campus.

Once the school gate closes, no students will be allowed to enter the school premises, and will be sent home and marked as absent.

Attendance

Students are expected to have at least 95% attendance throughout the whole year. In case of any absence, parents must inform the school immediately. Failure to maintain a 95% attendance rate may result in the student being withheld from sitting in school exams.

 In the case of an extended absence, the parents must submit a written request to their respective school office.

Attendance on the first day of school is mandatory. Failure to attend the first day of school may result in suspension.

Driver Pickup Policy

In order to ensure the safety of your child, FPS follows a strict pick-up policy at home time. Whether parents, grandparents, drivers or home employees come to pick up your child from school, they will be required to show your child’s FPS ID.

The school office will issue each household between 3-5 FPS IDs that can be used to pick up your child. Students must be picked up from inside the school premises and will not be allowed to leave the premises without adult supervision. Failure to show an FPS ID will result in delays for you and your child.

Uniform

School uniforms can be purchased from Ghani Sons or any other uniform supplier in the city.

From Pre-Nursery till Grade 5, boys are allowed to wear shorts, while girls are allowed to wear skirts. Students of these grade levels must wear white tennis shoes.

From grade 6 onwards, boy switch to wearing pants, while girls wear shalwar kameez. All students have the option of either wearing brown shoes or white tennis shoes.

After grade 6, the winter uniform for boys includes a full sleeve shirt and the FPS school tie which can be purchased at any uniform shop in the city.

The winter uniform hoodie for all grade levels can only be purchased online from I-skool at www.fpsiskool.com

Anti-Bullying Policy

FPS has a zero tolerance policy towards bullying. FPS strives to maintain a safe and peaceful environment in which all students are treated equally regardless of race, religion or gender orientation.

Bullying and discrimination, including cyber bullying, will result in possible suspension and expulsion.

Discipline Policy

Disruptive and disrespectful behavior that interferes with the learning environment of the school will be dealt with severely.

Depending on the severity of the situation, students are disciplined via verbal warnings, written warnings, detention, suspension and ultimately expulsion. Parents may also be called to meet the principal to discuss their child’s behavior.

Academic Probation

Students who receive a failing grade of below 50% or fail in two compulsory subjects are still promoted to the next grade level on academic probation.

While on academic probation, if a student receives a failing grade below 50% or fails in two compulsory subjects, the student is asked to either repeat the grade level or withdraw from the school.

Building Transfer

Building transfers between FPS campuses are permitted in special circumstances. Students are only allowed to change their building once during their time at FPS. The deadline to submit a transfer request is 1st April of every year. In order to submit a transfer request, please submit the following documents:

  • Letter of explanation
  • If the transfer is due to a change in residence, then please submit proof of your residency including tenancy agreement or ownership documents.
  • If the transfer is due to any other reason, then please submit documented proof
  • FPS does not entertain requests based on preconceived notions of school status

Parents are billed quarterly in the months of August, October, January, and May. All fees must be paid directly to the bank. Late fees will result in an incremental penalty.

Students with outstanding dues will not be allowed to sit for their midterm and final exams. Students will also not be promoted to the next grade level until all dues are cleared.
