Permission for your child to be photographed at Open Doors events

Dear Parents,

Open Doors is an Association. We employ all of the teaching staff and the Administrator.

Each and every parent of each child enrolled at Open Doors automatically becomes a member of the Association for the academic year. The Association is overseen by a small team of parents who volunteer to join a committee elected each year at the AGM.

At minimum, the required officers/committee members are President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Furthermore, other parents can be elected if willing to serve on the committee and participate in the Association’s life to help achieve its goal in supporting our children improve and learn, and providing a very high level of quality English teaching.

The current committee is comprised of parents who have been part of Open Doors for most of their child’s time spent with us. Their children are nearing the end of their education at Open Doors; we therefore need new blood to help run the school.

Legally, we need an elected group of parents to come forward as volunteers to form a committee for next year and beyond. The roles are not onerous in terms of time required to oversee the running of the school. The administrator is required to run the school with the guidance and help of the parents via the committee.

Please contact Shirley, our administrator, or myself, if you would like to become involved and ensure the perennity of Open Doors.

It is a wonderful adventure that began in 1986, nearly 40 years ago. I can only hope many of our members, sensing how vital their contribution, will feel the urge to join the committee as soon as the next AGM to help shape and run our children’s school for the years to come.

Ulysses Jalon


Please contact Shirley at to volunteer.

POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR POLICY and further commitments

Open Doors aims for every member of the school community to feel valued and respected by promoting an environment where all feel happy, safe and secure. Good behaviour is the key to a good education. Parents are encouraged to work with Open Doors to support children’s good behavior and well-being so that home and school are consistent in what they expect of each child.

The aim of this behavior policy is to:

  • a) Reinforce good behaviour
  • b) Use a positive teaching system to increase the child’s self- esteem and thus help to achieve more
  • c) Understand that behaviour can change and every child can be successful
  • d) Treat all children fairly and apply the policy in a consistent way


Open Doors students are expected to be considerate, courteous and co-operative. They should be sensitive to the needs and feelings of those around them. Honesty and respect for other people and property are paramount. The emphasis will be on self – discipline and consideration for others.


The behaviour policy emphasises a positive, pro-active approach to good behaviour. Good behaviour is expected naturally. There will be times when sanctions and punishment will play a part in discouraging and correcting unsuitable behaviour. Any punishment or sanction will encompass the following:

  • a) The reason for the punishment or sanction will be communicated to the student and parent
  • b) It will be proportionate to the seriousness of the offence
  • c) It will focus on the unacceptability of the behaviour and not the child itself

What constitutes unacceptable behaviour is at the discretion of the Open Doors staff and will be communicated to the student and parent concerned.


  • Step 1 - When a notable problem occurs, parents will be contacted and invited to school with their child for a discussion with the involved teacher. Following this meeting a correspondence book will be introduced and will be completed each week by the teacher, to be signed by parent (and student if in age) until the matter is resolved. An incident log will be filed and communicated to the head teacher and administrator.
  • Step 2 - If there is no material improvement in the following weeks, the student can be suspended accordingly to the school’s assessment.
  • Step 3 - If unacceptable behaviour continues, parents will be invited to a meeting at school with the teacher and the President of Open Doors for an exceptional disciplinary discussion after which Open Doors can consider suspending the student on a temporary, or ultimately permanent basis from the school.

There is no automatic passage to the next class if any issues remain unresolved.


Open Doors staff are required to assure the welfare of the whole class and cannot be distracted in terms of time or energy by one child in particular. Therefore, Open Doors retains at all times the right to decide if a student remains in the program for academic or behaviour reasons.
