Charters and regulations
As an accredited school, the LFIV follows the regulations of French school establishments. In this regard the primary and secondary schools are subject to internal regulations:
- The establishment of internal regulations implies the association of all members of the educational community and is the occasion for a real discussion to ensure that these rules are the result of a collective collaboration allowing for the best possible adoption of its provisions.
- The internal regulations for primary and secondary schools are in accordance with codes of civility and student behaviour. Furthermore, regulations may define some ideas of verbal violence; serious acts requiring an obligatory predetermined course of action, should a student engage in such behaviour.
- A copy of the internal regulations is distributed to each family.
The school canteen also has its own list of rules and a copy of these rules is also distributed to parents of students attending LFIV. The LFIV has rules regarding « school committees » which are made up of groups of parents and staff mandated by the Managing Committee to reflect and make proposals for matters related to a clearly defined domain over the period of a school year. Each committee has its own charter which will detail:
- Its domain of intervention
- Its objectives for the year
- Its members
- Its relationship with the governing body of the school including obligatory meetings with the latter
- Its relationship with the Managing Committee including the obligation to submit a minimum of a one annual report.
