GUNNERS' ENGLISH SCHOOL
Rules and Expectations
At Gunners’ English School our students thrive in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment.
Our school rules reflect our expectations for student behaviour and these expectations are applied across all school environments.
Through explicit instruction, students gain a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the behaviours expected from them. This provides a framework for student’s decision making and subsequent actions.
Students who meet the expectations are rewarded regularly and acknowledged through the school and classroom merit systems.
Students whose behaviour does not meet the expectations will be encouraged to reflect on how their behaviour could be improved to match the GES’ standards.
Our consistent, fair and holistic approach to behaviour management encourages positive behaviour in all areas of school life. Our rules and expectations are as follows:
Be a Responsible Learner
· develop a genuine love of learning
· pursue excellence and high standards
· take pride in your work
· contribute to class discussion and respect the views and ideas of others
· encourage creative thinking about issues and problems
· accept roles in group activities
· exhibit a strong sense of fairness and social justice in the classroom and beyond
· respect the rights of other learners
· arrive on time for class and be prepared for each learning session
· follow class rules, speak courteously and cooperate with instructions and learning activities
Respect Yourself and Others
· treat teacher and staff, other students and members of the school community with dignity, care and respect
· actively participate as a responsible citizen of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh
· have respect for and understanding of Bangladeshi’s history including the religion, cultures, social activities and experiences as a multicultural society
· attend school every day, unless you are legally excused

ü Sometimes special projects and activities will fit into the curriculum. They will be shared with you by the teachers in that grade level.
ü Positive reinforcement will be given to students for completing homework assignments.
ü If a student doesn’t complete their homework, the following procedure will take place:
1. Three warnings will be given
2. After the 3rdwarning the class teacher will contact the parents
3. Two warnings will be given,
4. After the 2nd missed assignment (eg. home work, project work etc.), the teacher(s), parents, as well as the student will hold a meeting to develop a plan for completion of homework.
Reasons Why Homework is Important:
1. Homework prepares a student for new, upcoming, work.
2. Homework reinforces work that has been taught.
3. Homework presents information in a new and different way.
4. Homework provides practice for those students still unsure.
A Parent’s Guide to Homework
1. Set a schedule for your child to complete their homework.
2. Provide a homework area that has good lighting, is comfortable, and is fairly quiet. If possible, supply a desk or a work table.
3. Eliminate distractions by making the telephone, television, video games, and music off limits.
Provide homework supplies and hold students responsible for keeping them organized.
