VISION DOCUMENT
 
Yog Bharti Public School
Providing a truly holistic education through a progressive school.
 
Executive Summary
Yog Bharti Public School has been making incessant efforts to improve student impact in our school. Here are some of the factors which we feel will help improve the impact:
School Tranformation
 
Make morning
school assemblies more interactive
 and student oriented. Teachers should be expected to
model the behaviour
 they expect from the students.
 
 
Morning school assemblies to be cut down from 6 days a week to 2-3 days a week.
Interactive Class assemblies
 should be organized on the other 3-4 days.
 
 
Use of
softboards and displays for constructive purposes
 like publically appreciating school staff and students, for word walls, etc.
 
 
Greater
freedom for teachers
 
to ‘explore and improvise’ in their delivery of curriculum.
 
 
Big Goal setting with students
 to invest them in their own learning.
 
Create Parent Advisory Committees
 (PAC)s
for investing parents in school’s mission and make
communication between parents and school much more efficient.
Class Tranformation
 
Shifting focus in English teaching to a
functional, practical-usage
 based approach rather than the current grammar based theoretical approach.
 
Adopting NCERT textbooks
 for a conceptual and well-paced curriculum that suits the learning speed of our students.
 
Make exams more conceptual
, aligned to real life and focussing on usage of critical thinking skills.
 
Using projects and activities rather than a traditional pen and paper test for Formative Assessments (
Following the CCE framework
)
 
Shifting from a focus on 33% passing marks to
80% mastery
 in our assessments.
 
Putting student
learning outcome
 at the center of all teaching methods.
 
 
“Utopia lies at the Horizon. I take ten steps towards the horizon and it moves ten
steps back. I take twenty swift steps forward and it swiftly moves twenty steps back. What then is the purpose of the Horizon? What then is the purpose of the
Utopia? It makes me keep walking..” 
 -Eduardo Galeano
INTRODUCTION
While every organization can connect its vision and mission to this quote, the quote really comes alive in a school setting. The way a school functions, decides the course of a society over the next 60-70 years. What the students will make of the society in the coming decades will decide if it is a utopian society or not. With that accepted, it can be also be related that every step towards the horizon is only a step in fulfilling the dreams and aspirations of our children. Not the ones who can or the ones who cannot, nor
the ones who are quiet and well behaved or those who are hyperactive and often labeled ‘Trouble
-
makers’. The common purpose should be t
o raise the thinking and achievement levels of EACH AND EVERY KID in our school IRRESPECTIVE of where they are right now. As someone who have just been debutant teachers, we have been quite motivated and inspired by the way our school functions. Before joi
ning the fellowship we really didn’t expect so much professionalism and emphasis on progressive education. It has also been our fortune to have observed something’s that
perhaps become oblivious to the eyes of those who see/feel/experience them on daily basis. Here are some of the observations that we had and some suggestions based on our limited knowledge and experience in Education. Their purpose is not to be a prescriptive document but to have a thought dialogue between various stakeholders in the school.
 
Transformation in School
 
Transformation in Class
It is important to clarify right at the onset that even though we divide the levels of transformation in School and Class but just like an organic cell, what lies at the heart of all these transformations is transformation in every kid. Every kid is different and every kid is special is quite the rhetoric of the town in all modern schools, but what it does not translate into is an active belief that none of the students are the same. They are all different and shall stay to be different for various reasons (societal/parental/genetical) and its we who have to adapt to their different needs than the students adapting to us, because then they become mere Xerox copies of our own experiences than being a product of their own unique experiences. In exact terms, they become caged by our experiences and never get to try being a strong individual self.
