5)Bullying/Harassment

  • We believe in a safe learning environment, free from all forms of bullying and harassment, where community members treat one another with respect. Our Anti-Bullying and Harassment Policy is central to these efforts. It is designed to promote learning, eliminate all forms of violent, harmful, and disruptive behavior, and to enable students to achieve their personal and academic potential.
  • We understand that certain students may be more vulnerable to bullying, harassment, hazing, or teasing based on actual or perceived characteristics—including race, color, religion, age, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, academic status, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, physical appearance, disability, or any other classification protected under state or federal law—or by association with a person who has or is perceived to have these characteristics.
6.1) Harassment and Hazing:

Harassment is any abuse of an individual or group based on race, color, religion, age, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, academic status, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, physical appearance, disability, or any other classification protected under state or federal law. It includes both easily-identified acts of oral, written, or physical abuse as well as other less-obvious but equally damaging forms of harassment, such as remarks of "humor" or any behavior that contributes to the creation of a hostile environment in which to live and learn.

Any incidents involving sexual or any other harassment, racial, religious, or ethnic intolerance, physical injuries or threats, and fighting will be dealt with as disciplinary matters. Furthermore, the school does not tolerate humiliating or potentially harmful "rites of passage" or "initiations," and such behaviors will be treated as disciplinary matters.
6.2) Bullying:

Any written or verbal expression, physical acts or gestures directed at another person to intimidate, frighten, ridicule, humiliate, or cause harm where the conduct is not related to the person's membership in a protected class (e.g., race, sex). Bullying may include – but is not limited to–repeated taunting, threats of harm, verbal or physical intimidation, cyber-bullying, pushing, kicking, hitting, spitting, or taking or damaging another's personal property. Bullying is a form of aggression that involves a power imbalance between the bully and victim, where the bully has actual or perceived physical, social, and/or psychological power over his/her/their target(s). Bullying generally involves a pattern of conduct that is directed at a victim, rather than a single isolated incident. Bullying behavior may also constitute a crime.
6.3) Cyberbullying:

Bullying through the use of technology or any electronic communication. It includes—but is not limited to—any transfer of signs, signals, writing, images, sounds, data, or intelligence of any nature transmitted virtually through electronic means. Cyber-bullying can occur via e-mail, internet communication, social media app, instant message, or any other electronic or network system. It also includes

(i) the creation of a web page or blog in which the creator assumes the identify of another person or (ii) the knowing impersonation of another person as the author of posted content or messages, if the creation or impersonation creates any of the conditions noted in the definition of bullying. Cyber-bullying also includes the electronic distribution to more than one person—or posting of material on an electronic medium accessible by one or more persons—if the distribution or posting creates any of the conditions noted in the definition of bullying.
6.4) Discrimination:

Respect for the rights of all and for the differences among us is essential for the health of the Deerfield community. Discrimination against others has no place here. If a student experiences or witnesses any discrimination by students or employees, they should report the incident to the headmaster immediately. Such incidents violate the ideals of our school and thus require a strict disciplinary response.

Sexual misconduct is a broad category of prohibited behaviors that includes–but is not limited to–sexual harassment, unwanted touching, and any other nonconsensual sexual behavior including:

  • Inappropriate personal questions;
  • Sexually stereotyped or sexually charged insults, humor or verbal abuse;
  • Sexually explicit or suggestive remarks about a person's physical attributes, clothing or behavior;
  • Leering at or ogling a person's body;
  • Unwelcome touching;
  • Any demeaning sexual propositions;
  • Pressure exerted for sexual activity or for a relationship that takes on a sexual or romantic coloring, exceeding the limits of a healthy adult-student or student-student friendship;

Students are required to attend all classes and remain in the school premises during school hours. No student may leave school during interval or lunch without prior permission.

10.1) The 90 Percent rule

An attendance record of at least 90% for the academic year is expected of each student.
The 90 percent rule applies to all absences, including excused absences, therefore parents should think carefully before requesting for a leave.
The attendance record will be evaluated on a termly basis. For those students who fail to meet the attendance criteria in the first term, they will be promoted to the second term on a ‘conditional basis', and they will have to ensure their attendance is not compromised in the second term, in order to be promoted to the third term.
Failure to keep up with the attendance policy in term 1 and term 2 will mean the student will not be allowed to appear for the final term exams, and the student will have to repeat the year.
10.2) Absences

If you know your child is going to be absent for any reason, please inform the head master's office and leave a massage with the student's name, form class, and reason for absence. Kindly ensure the school is notified on the same day before closure of normal activity.
After an absence from school, the student must bring, on the day of return, a letter signed by their parents/guardians, stating the reason for absence, and take it to the form teacher. The letter should be formal and on a A4 paper, this will be filed to the student records.
In the event of the absence exceeding 2 days, the absence should be explained by a medical certificate.
All absences including the ones approved by school will be accounted for and will go against the attendance record of the student.
10.3) Absences excused by school

Although perfect attendance is the goal, it's not always possible. Reasons that may qualify for a legitimate absence include:

  • Observe a religious holy day
  • Attend a required court appearance
  • Attend a healthcare appointment
  • Personal illness (supported by a medical document)
  • Death of an immediate family member
  • Medical treatment (supported by a medical document)
10.4) Excessive absences

Both the child and parent are responsible for unexcused absences.
After too many unexcused absences, the school is required to notify the parent. A compulsory attendance notification will be sent to the parent if a student has unexcused absences on 10 or more days or parts of days within a term period. Notice it says "parts of days." This means that leaving school early, or arriving excessively late in the day, even if the child attended for some of the day, may count as an absence.
The compulsory attendance letter gives the parent notice that the student has accumulated too many unexcused absences and gives the parent a chance to correct the child's attendance record.
10.5) Truancy (Bunking)

Truancy is any intentional, unjustified, unauthorized, or illegal absence from compulsory education. It is a deliberate absence by a student's own free will and usually does not refer to legitimate excused absences, such as ones related to medical conditions.
Frequent Truancy may result in a student not being able to graduate or to receive a grade for classes attended, until the time lost to truancy is made up through a combination of detention and fines.
When a student misses a class intentionally in School, Parents will be notified immediately and appropriate action will be taken.
The Student will be marked absent immediately shall this become a regular situation.
10.6) Tardiness

A student is tardy if she or he is not present at the start of class.
All students must be at the school before 7.00am sharp.
Latecomers must report to their form teachers and obtain a "Late Pass" in order to attend the classes for the day.

Students shall:

  • Arrive to each and every class on time prepared to learn.
  • Monitor their own attendance and adhere to the consequences
  • Report attendance errors to their teacher.

  • Communicate and reinforce school expectations around attendance
  • Monitor accumulated absences and tardiness

Frequent late arrivals may result in the student not attending class and being sent back home, with further disciplinary actions followed.
