    General Rules

    • Diaries, notebooks and books must be laminated with a plastic cover and labelled with the student’s Name, Class and Section. Other belongings (such as uniform, cap, scarf, lunch box, water bottle, shoes, swimsuit etc.) should be labelled with the student’s registration number. All belongings brought to the school premises must not have any cartoon characters on them.
    • Students are not allowed to bring money or expensive items such as jewellery, watch, etc.
    • Parents are advised to send homemade food and avoid sending unhealthy food.
    • In case of a student’s absence, parents must inform the school and submit an application by hand or via email (school@thebenchmark.com.pk).
    • Parents are advised to keep hold of their fee receipt for three months as they may be required from the school.
    • Parents must keep their contact information up to date with the school. The school can only contact parents according to the information they have provided.
  • Uniform

    • If a student is found violating the uniform code (untidy or improper uniform, missing cap, improper shoes, missing student ID card, poor grooming, etc.), he/she will not be allowed to attend school.

    Admission may be dismissed if:

    • The student’s overall attendance is less than 85%.
    • The parents fail to pay the fees by due date.
    • The parents or student is found using foul language and/or shows aggression toward teachers and staff.
    • The parents or student is found to be defaming the school and/or its staff in the society (verbally or through social media).
    • It is established that our teaching technique is not helpful for the particular student.

    Transport

    • Transport is outsourced. Management will only assist you for the availability of vans and reasonable fare. It is the parent’s responsibility to know the van driver’s name and his contact information. The school is not responsible for transport.

    Swimming

    • Swimming is only available to students of Grade I to V (for boys only). The school takes all possible measures to ensure safety. However, there is always a risk in any physical activity. If parents are not willing to take the risk, they may provide us a request in writing, stating that they do not wish their child to participate in swimming.

    Grievance Procedure

    • Your suggestions and concerns are important to us. To reach us in this regard, please send an email to feedback@thebenchmark.com.pk. Emails to other addresses will not be entertained. Parents are advised to wait a week for any matter to be fully resolved.

    Parents Teacher Meetings

    • Parents may take an appointment on Fridays (9:00-11:00 AM) for all concerns.

I have read and understood the contents above and pledge to follow them InshaAllah. Breach of the above-mentioned rules may result in the dismissal of admission.
