POLICY: ADMISSION AND TUITION

The Brackenfell Primary School endorses the admission policy of the WCED and the
education act as stated in Law 84 of 1996. The school will make provision for Afrikaans and
English speaking learners. Tuition will therefore take place in Afrikaans and English. A
learner with any other language as vernacular, will have to choose after having written an
aptitude test in Afrikaans and English.

The WCED has approved the following service area:
North: Langeberg Ridge; Uitsig; Langeberg Heights
South: Brackenfell station and railway line
East: Okovango Road
West: R300 and surrounds

Admission to the Brackenfell Primary School can only be obtained if the learner has applied
for admission on the prescribed application form and the parents make themselves available
for an interview with the admission committee. The headmaster can enrol a learner after
having ascertained the following:
*       That a certified copy of the birth certificate has been provided. Learners must be 6a
        old to be enrolled into Gr R and 7a old in Gr 1.
*       That a certified copy of the clinic card was handed in.
*       The Brackenfell P/S is physically the nearest suitable school (lease or ownership).
*       The school has the space, apparatus and desk available to accommodate the learner.
*       The number of learners in the class will not exceed 36.
*       Learners from outide the feeder area can be admitted if historical connections exist
        and/or if the learner’s parent is a teacher at this school.
*       Learners with special learning needs (Multigrade Class) can be admitted if there are
        vacancies. Only 14 learners are allowed in that group.
*       The age of learners who are admitted will not differ by more than two years from the
        average age of the grade group.
*       With the exception of Gr R and 1, learners must furnish a transfer form and an
        official academic report of their previous school.
*       The parents of new enrolments can be requested to make the first payment upon
        admission.

Learners are assigned to a group by the school principal. Therefore no parent has the right to
request where and with whom the child must be placed. The school reserves the right to
subject the learner to a language aptitude test.

General               :       The school is an established primary school that meets the
                              required teacher:pupil ratio as determined by the WCED.

Bible Education       :       A high premium is placed on Bible education. No dogma
                              is expounded, however, and the religious norms of the
                              parent body is deferred.

                                             2/8
Language medium        :       The school is a declared parallel medium school.
                              (Afrikaans/English).

Academics              :      The syllabi of the WCED are used as basic guidelines
                              and are regarded as the minimum educational content that a
                              learner should be exposed to.

Differentiated tuition remains an essential facet of tuition and teaching is adapted accordingly
to provide for the wants of individual learners. The latter resulted in specialized teaching for
those learners with learning barriers as well as enrichment for advanced pupils.

Pass requirements      :      The directives of the WCED are adhered to.

Standard               :      Standard of tuition
                              - very high standards are maintained.

                      :       Academic standard
                              -            Learners are exposed to what has been
                                           prescribed by the WCED and opportunities are
                                           created for learners to be more advanced
                                           academically than others.

CODE OF CONDUCT
The code of conduct was compiled according to Art. 21 (d) of the South African Schools Act
no. 84 of 1996.

AIM, FUNCTION AND EDUCATIONAL APPROACH

The code of conduct was compiled to effectuate the mission and vision of the school .... to
afford opportunities to learners to develop maximally in order to be in good standing in the
community and fulfil their roles.

The code of conduct assists in the creation of a stabile, functional and productive learning
environment where pupils will have equal opportunities to receive and experience
uninterrupted tuition of the highest standard.

Although every learner will be approached and treated as an individual, the learner must be
allowed to receive tuition in an orderly and disciplined milieu, without any negative influences.

                                              3/8
The objectives of the code of conduct therefore aim to ....
     Provide good discipline according to clearly defined rules that will always be fair and
       be implemented consistently and irrespective of persons.
     Prevent that learners develop negative characteristics.
     Ensure that the educational norms and standards upheld at home and in the community
       will be confirmed and elaborated at school.
     Identify learners displaying deviant behaviour in order to reorientate them, or to expel
       learners according to the ordinance to limit or eliminate their negative influence in the
       school community.

Interested parties
    Teachers                    : The creators of the code of conduct and the main agents for
                                   enforcing the code and its further development.
      Parent/ guardian        : The responsible adult who condones and underwrites the
                                   code of conduct and who lays claim to the execution of
                                   the code of conduct to effectuate a disciplined,
                                   constructive, positive and productive learning
                                   environment.

The above-mentioned includes:

      Regular school attendance.
      Following school rules i.r.o. uniform, sportswear, personal hygiene, cleanliness, etc.
      Educational support of the code.
      Personal acceptance of the code by each learner.
      Learners:
       New learners must study the code of conduct in order to adhere to the disciplinary
       measures and norms of the Brackenfell Primary School.

      Academic demeanour and classroom conduct
      Sport participation

   -       Rules of the class educators.
   -       Rules of the monitors.

                                             4/8
Rewards, punishment and serious misconduct:

          Learners who purposely strive to maintain the code of conduct must be rewarded to
           such an extent that it will be an honour for him and the school.
The most important reward lies in the self-realization and awareness of the individual of his
self-worth and him actually living out that which he believes in.

          Minor transgressions:
The headmaster, School Management Team and/or educators will have an input. Punishment
metered out by monitors must be approved by a head of department and the headmaster must
have prior knowledge thereof for approval.

Punishment for general misdemeanours will be finalized by the headmaster. All punitive
measures will be educational, accountable and corrective.

The type of punishment will be determined by the type of misconduct.

Serious misconduct:

It will be dealt with according to the stipulations of the law and ordinances:

          Convicted by a court of a crime.
          Use or distribution of intoxicating substances of any kind.
          Guilty of theft, assault or an immoral act; racism; bullying; vandalism; disrespecting
           authority.
          Repeated absence without permission (a medical certificate may be required or
           parents must explain the learners’ whereabouts).
          Behaviour which the Governing Body deemed contrary to the norms and standards
           of the school and/or community and was not condusive to positive and progressive
           tuition.

The school’s policy in respect of the above is as follows:

      Learners who ignore the authority and self-disciplining measures of the school after
       repeated warnings, will be regarded as learners who do not behave according to the
       norms and standards of the school. They may be requested to stay at home for a period
       of up to 5 consecutive days for rehabilitation.

If the latter has no effect, the parents will be requested to appear before the Governing Body to
be informed of possible expulsion procedures.

Drugs, alcohol and tobacco:

Learners in a primary school is usually under 16 years of age and very susceptible to
intoxicating products. Statistics confirm that fact.

The Brackenfell Primary School considers the use of these substances as unlawful and not in
line with the norms and standards of the community.
                                            5/8
Distribution, purchasing, selling and/or consumption of any drug, alcohol or tobacco can lead
to an investigation of the Governing Body, which may lead to expulsion.

Computer room rules:

The computer room is an enormous capital expense. Specific rules to protect the facility:

1.     No food, cooldrinks, sweets may be brought into the room or eaten in the room.
2.     Learners are seated and may not leave their seats without permission.
3.     No playing with the apparatus is allowed.
4.     Own devices may not be used without prior permission of the person in charge.
5.     No running around will be allowed.
6.     The utilization of programs and apparatus will only take place under the
       supervision of the person in charge.
7.     No apparatus or parts of it may be removed from the computer room without the
       written permission of the supervisor.

NB: If a learner damages an apparatus or parts of it, it may be expected that the
apparatus should be repaired or replaced.

FINANCIAL COMMITMENT

I, ______________________________________________, (biological father /guardian)

and ___________________________________________, (biological mother/guardian)

in our capacity as the legal parents/guardians of the learner (names and surname)

_______________________________________________________ hereby undertake in
favour of the Brackenfell Primary School as follows:

   1. We jointly undertake to pay the school’s tuition fees and we understand that:
    The annual tuition fees will be a compulsory amount, as approved by the parents at the
       annual budget meeting.
    Tuition fees are payable in advance on the first school day of the year, by means of the
       following payment options (please encircle the letter of the option you choose):
   (a) The full amount to be paid in one sum at the beginning of the school year.
   (b) The tuition fees to be paid in 10 monthly instalments by the following means.
        Mark the option you prefer.

          Payment by means of a monthly debit order on my bank account.

          Monthly payments by means of cash/cheque.

          Internet transfer.

The first instalment is due on the seventh day of February of the year in which the learner
attends the school and the fees are due, and thereafter by the 7th of each subsequent month,
with the last instalment due on the 7th day of November of that year.

      According to family law, both biological parents are jointly held liable for the payment
       of tuition fees, regardless of their marital status.
      If the school fees are not paid, both biological parents will be sued, regardless of any
       maintenance agreements and court orders between the parents.
      In terms of Sections 40 and 41 of the South African Schools Act, the school can enforce
       payment of the compulsory tuition fees.
      If the school is compelled to take legal action, the biological parents undertake to pay
       all legal costs, including attorney/client fees and the recovery fees payable by the
       school.
      Parents who cannot afford to pay tuition fees may apply for exemption and/or partial
       exemption. Both biological parents must complete the appropriate documentation.

                                             6/8
   The school may store any personal information regarding parents’ liability for the
       payment of school fees on the school computer system, or any other system and may
       disclose the information of both parents to the school’s debt collectors, should the
       parents be handed over.
      Please notify the financial office in writing if your records and our records reflect
       different amounts.
      The School Governing Body is entitled to change e.g. the terms of payment, provided
       that the person liable for payment is informed thereof in writing.
      Agreements are available in Afrikaans and English.
