School Policies

Salient Features of the Policies

Academic Integrity Policy

OISG guided by the philosophy of the IB, places great value on the ethical qualities of personal integrity and academic integrity. Academic integrity is expected of all members of the learning community – students, teachers, administration and parents. We are guided in our expectations and practices by two of the Learner Profile attributes, which describe students as:

  • PRINCIPLED: They act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of the individual, groups and communities. They take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them.
  • REFLECTIVE: They give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience. They can assess and understand their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal development.

Admission Policy

OISG celebrates the range in our community and comply with the curriculum requirement. Thus, the admission policy ensures that every student is treated with dignity and respect.

The school treats all students equally. The origin for this policy is the philosophy of inclusive education and Nord Anglia Education philosophy of an ambitious future for all learners.

Assessment Policy

Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Assessment policy informs the importance of assessments to all the members of the learning community involved. The main objective of assessment at OIS is to provide students with feedback on their learning, in order to allow students to learn and improve further. Teachers are expected to use assessment results to inform their planning of further learning experiences.

Inclusive Education Policy

At OISG, we recognize that a range of learning difficulties, behavioural problems, physical or sensory disabilities, and other learning barriers exist within the learning communities of the school. We recognize that there is a continuum of Diverse Educational Needs (DEN) and that the needs of the majority of these students’ needs require close collaboration between the student, home and school. OISG also acknowledges that it has a role in providing opportunity, support and guidance in working with the students and families in meeting their educational needs.

Language Policy

The mission of OISG is to develop the full potential of each student within the school community. Language is central to all learning and to the development of identity and is also vitally important to good understanding and communication within and across cultures. We therefore believe that, all students need strong language skills to develop their personal, cognitive, social and cultural identity. In order to be connected with their own cultural identity and heritage, all students have the right to express themselves in home and family language. Learning more than one language helps students to become understanding citizens of the world and better multilingual communicators. Language development is the responsibility of all teachers, parents and students. Under “the Telangana (Compulsory Teaching and Learning of Telugu in Schools) Rules, 2018”, Telugu language is introduced from Grade 1 to Grade 10.
