Internal regulation

Internal regulation 2023-2024

Table of Contents

These internal regulations, approved on October 12th 2023 by the School Board, are intended for all members of the educational community.

The registration of a student by his family means that they adhere to this regulation and that they undertake to respect its terms.

A private school under Norwegian law attached to the network of Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Etranger (AEFE), the Lycée Français René Cassin provides education in accordance with the programmes, educational objectives and organisational rules applicable in France and prepares for the same exams and diplomas. It welcomes students of different nationalities and faiths.

The education also meets the requirements of the Norwegian Education Act.

In accordance with the Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Child, the school guarantees education in a psycho-social and material environment promoting the well-being of children. In addition, the school develops and strengthens their knowledge and respect for human rights, including gender equality.

This regulation also refers to the main principles of the education service: equality, neutrality, secularism.

The principle of equality is expressed in two ways: equal access to education and equal treatment.

The principle of neutrality extends to several areas:

  • duty of impartiality
  • Respect for the general interest and individual freedom of conscience.
  • This freedom leads to the notion of learning citizenship and democracy.
  • The principle of secularism (in accordance with the charter of secularism of the French State) is understood with respect for pluralism, the freedom of others and without prejudice to the teaching activities of the Lycée, the content programs and the obligation of attendance.

The admission of a student to the Lycée Français René Cassin in Oslo is subject to:

  1. The payment in good time, by the legal guardian of the child, of the school fees in force (registration fees, tuition fees, etc.) as well as, where applicable, full payment of the school fees for previous school years (for re-registrations).
  2. Upon acceptance of these internal regulations and the financial regulations

Content and definitions of obligations

1.II.1 Obligation of assiduity and punctuality

1.II.1.1 Definition of attendance

Attendance is an essential condition for carrying out the student’s personal project and academic success. It consists of accomplishing all the tasks inherent to his studies.

It is required for all courses, whether compulsory or optional. The latter, chosen freely at the time of registration, become compulsory for the entire school year.

It implies that the student

  • be present at the courses listed on the timetable with all their belongings, including for the options chosen
  • arrives on time
  • do their homework and submit their work on time
  • submits to the methods of control and evaluation of knowledge
  • attends information sessions on studies and professional careers, intended to facilitate the development by the student of his personal orientation project.
  • participate in the activities offered by the school.

1.II.1.2 Checking the attendance requirement

1.II.1.2.a Method of control

At each hour of class, the teachers check the presence of the pupils who are placed under their responsibility. They make a call and report absences online via the school life software. Their responsibility is engaged if the control is not carried out rigorously.

In primary school, a roll call register is filled out in the morning and at the beginning of the afternoon, to list absent pupils, the reasons for absence and late arrivals. In the event of unjustified absences or repeated lateness, these are indicated by the teacher to the Director, who will discuss with the parents.

These provisions apply to other members of the educational team responsible for activities organized by the school.

1.II.1.2. b Justification of absences and late arrivals

For the primary

  • Parents must inform, in writing, of the absence of their child either the same day or when the student returns.
  • Any foreseeable occasional absence must obtain the prior approval of the primary school director.

For secondary

  • Any absence or delay must be justified. The adult student can justify his absence himself, but any repeated absence will be reported to the parents if the student is dependent on them.
  • The reason for the absence must be indicated as well as its duration. The office of school life (vie scolaire) appreciates the validity of the reasons provided. Absences must all be justified by valid reasons: events concerning close family, health reasons, religious holidays or ceremonies listed in the Official Bulletin of National Education, administrative or medical summonses.
  • Parents must inform the same day of the absence of their child by calling school life or by sending an e-mail. When the student returns to school, the absence must be justified in writing in order to be able to return to class.
  • The person in charge of School Life (Vie Scolaire) immediately informs, by e-mail, the legal guardians of the pupil if an absence has not been duly justified and then requests proof.
  • Any foreseeable absence must be notified in writing. In the event of absence for an appointment during the day, the student must report to school life to be able to return to his class.
  • Absences and unjustified delays are recorded on the student’s quarterly report

For both primary and secondary :

  • It is mandatory to report the appearance of contagious disease such as chickenpox or scarlet fever.
  • Depending on the case, a certificate of non-contagion may be required upon the student’s return.
  • The administration will inform families according to established procedures.

1.II.1.2.c Regular absences

If the number of absences becomes too high in one or more subjects, the pupil receives a written warning. If the absences continue, the student may be sanctioned more heavily. (See chapter 4)

For children in preschool, parents undertake to respect the principle of school attendance.

1.II.1.2. d Delays

In elementary school and preschool

If a pupil arrives late, he can only go to class with the authorisation of the primary school director and will be accompanied by an adult from the school in class.

In middle school and high school

If a student arrives late for a lesson, he will have to go to school life (vie scolaire).

If more than 10 minutes late, the student may be refused access to the class. He will then be directed to the service of school life. From the 3rd delay, he may be invited to come on overtime work.

1.II.1.2. e Procedure

In the event that the number of late arrivals or absences is too great, the student and his parents can:

  • be invited to an interview with the management
  • receive an oral or written warning for the student
  • The Norwegian and French administrations will be informed of absences as part of the management of scholarships given to families for schooling. After 22 days of unjustified absence during the semester, re-registration the following year may be refused.

1.II.1.2.f : Exemption from sporting activities

An exemption or incapacity may be total or partial. For the latter, the teacher will adapt the activity, if possible.

Exemption for more than one cycle (sequence or module): Upon presentation of a medical certificate, with the agreement of the sport teacher, may be exempted.

The student must bring an appropriate outfit according to the activity practiced, the weather.

1.II.2 Methods of evaluating school work

In preschool a success booklet is regularly issued to parents indicating the progress of their child.

In elementary school, digital skills booklets can be consulted by parents twice a year.

In secondary school, the evaluation of school work makes it possible to assess the results and behavior of the term. A quarterly bulletin is given to parents (or directly to adult students) following the class council, to be kept for orientation procedures.

1.II.2.1 Absence from a test

This absence distorts the overall results of the student. If the absence is not justified, the student is sanctioned in accordance with Chapter 4.

Whether there is proof or not the teacher can do a new check when the student returns, or, if the teacher judges that the number of evaluations does not allow a significant average of the student’s level, the student will not have marks that term. On his report is then indicated the number of checks carried out on all the checks of the quarter. The marks obtained are subject to an appreciation and not an average.

With regard to homework, students who do not complete homework by the set date are penalized in accordance with Chapter 4 and may be subject to immediate supervision.

1.II.2.2 Cheating or plagiarism

It is forbidden to use texts, images and material without indicating the source. This is considered cheating or plagiarism.

The student who cheated or plagiarized will be sanctioned according to the procedures provided for in the rules of procedure; he may also be led to produce a new work depending on the nature of the plagiarism and the circumstances.

1.II.2.3 Zero Rating

A zero rating cannot be a disciplinary sanction. However, a work whose results are objectively zero, an assignment not submitted without valid reason, a blank copy or one manifestly tainted by cheating are justifiable for zero marking, which in no way excludes a disciplinary decision.

1.II.3 Obligations inherent in collective life and the operation of the school

Mutual respect from members of the school and educational community is expected. Reference is made to the fundamental principles: equality, neutrality, secularism and respect for human rights, including gender equality.

In this spirit, and although the school is not responsible for the acts committed by the pupils outside the school, it reserves the right to sanction any behavior which, by its repercussions, would harm the well-being of the members of the school community.

1.II.3.1 Respect for people

  • Respect other members of the school community (bullying, extortion and other verbal or physical violence are prohibited). The property complies with the rules of the Norwegian Welfare Act (Ch. 9A of the Norwegian Act).

  • Have a respectful attitude, dress and behavior.
  • Respect the instructions of any adult, member of the staff of the school and therefore having an educational mission.
  • No photo or video may be taken of a member of the community without their prior written permission. Any distribution on social networks of an image taken within the school of a member of the community must be subject to prior written authorization.
  • The large number of students present in the school requires the organization of staggered breaks: some classes may be in recess while others need concentration and calm to follow a course or take an exam: it is important to be aware that noise pollution disrupts the smooth running of the school: everyone is therefore asked, depending on their age or function, to contribute to keeping the noise level reasonable.
  • Any activity such as betting, games, challenge, coinage, which may lead to financial or material gains or losses is prohibited.

1.II.3.2 Respect for goods and hygiene

  • Respect the environment, the state of the buildings, the premises, the equipment. Any degradation is sanctioned and financial compensation may be requested from the parents.
  • In the event of damage, the high school student hostel may be closed as a precautionary measure for an indefinite period.
  • The notion of respect implies that everyone must be an actor in maintaining cleanliness. During the school year, students may be asked to participate in maintenance and cleaning actions. Similarly, if a student notices a lack of hygiene or safety, he is encouraged to report it to the administration as soon as possible.
  • Hygiene procedures for rooms and common areas must be respected
  • The health and hygiene rules in force must be respected.
  • It is forbidden to eat in the corridors, offices, or during lessons (except exams)

See the charter for the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the school.

The information is disseminated by the electronic binder or by email.

Members of the school community undertake to regularly consult these tools. Parents can, through this, request private interviews with each teacher.

They also have the opportunity to meet the Principal, the Principal of the primary school as well as the Principal Education Advisor (school life) and the staff of the Health and Guidance Well-Being Centre.

2) Principes de Communication
Il est de la plus haute importance pour le bon fonctionnement de l’établissement que tous les membres de la communauté éducative s’efforcent de communiquer de manière constructive. C’est pourquoi nous demandons à tout le monde de mettre en pratique les recommandations suivantes dans leurs prises de contact et échanges : 

  • In the vast majority of cases, your best contact will be the person who knows best the subject you wish to discuss. First contact the person most directly concerned.
  • If you would like a member of staff whose contact details you do not have to contact you, please contact school life (college-high school) or the primary school secretariat (kindergarten-primary).
  • Exchanges by e-mail are welcome, and should make it possible to respect working hours and a reasonable response time. Current technology makes it possible to defer the sending of letters written in the evening or on weekends.
  • Reserve the use of e-mails for the communication of information, factual questions or requests for appointments. If your messages are short and focused on one topic at a time, it is easier to give you a clear answer quickly.
  • By showing courtesy and respect, in particular by addressing difficult or contentious issues, you contribute to the establishment of a good climate of dialogue, and thus to effectively find good solutions.
  • During proceedings, it is important not to mention situations concerning a particular staff in front of all their colleagues and their superiors. These situations must be seen before or after the class council with the person concerned.
  • Finally, if the situation does not seem to you to be resolved in a satisfactory manner after having discussed it with the person concerned, it is important to inform the management (directly or via a mediator) who will do what is necessary to improve the situation. situation in dialogue with the person concerned.
  • Finally, in the event of a serious and urgent situation, the person concerned and the management must be informed quickly.


The Institution Council

It meets three times a year at the end of the quarter. It is made up of :

  • its president (principal and/or CPE)
  • the teaching team
  • the CPE
  • two class delegates
  • two parent delegates and anyone whose skills could be useful.
  • The headteacher presents to the class council the results obtained by the pupils and presents the observations made by the educational team on the class group.

The class council makes orientation proposals, in particular at the end of the school year.

In high school, from the 2nd class to the final class, depending on the work provided and the results, he can offer congratulations, compliments or encouragement but also warnings about work or behavior.

Its members are bound by a duty of confidentiality and solidarity in the decisions taken within it. A confidentiality charter will be presented for signature to the student and parent delegates at each occurrence and an oral reminder will be given at the start of the session.

Information meetings :

One meeting per class for all parents is scheduled during the school year. In secondary school, a parent-teacher meeting takes place in the middle of the school year. But all families can contact the teachers or the administration by a scheduled meeting. Parents are also invited to various information meetings depending on the theme and level that concern them.

4.I.1 Request for reparation or punishment

They can be imposed on pupils in the event of minor breaches of their obligations or in the event of disruption of the life of the class or the establishment. They can be pronounced by management staff, education staff and teachers.

They can also be pronounced on the proposal of other non-teaching members of the educational community, by management and education staff. It can be a written observation communicated to the legal representatives, oral or written apologies, additional work, work of general interest, detention, punctual exclusions from a course.

4.I.2 Disciplinary sanctions

Disciplinary sanctions are measures falling under the Principal or the disciplinary council, exclusively, for attacks on persons or property, or serious breaches of the obligations of pupils.

Are pronounced by the Principal or the disciplinary council: the warning, the reprimand, the temporary exclusion which cannot exceed 5 days (from CP to 5E).

4.I.3 Disciplinary Board

It follows the provisions of the AEFE.

It is composed of :

  • The Principal or his deputy
  • The main education adviser (CPE)
  • The Administrative and Financial Director
  • Five staff representatives, including four for teaching and education staff and one for administrative staff
  • Three representatives of the parents of pupils and two representatives of the pupils

It is up to the headteacher to assess whether there is reason to initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student.

When the Principal, seized in writing of a request for referral to the disciplinary council from a member of the school community, decides not to initiate disciplinary proceedings, he notifies him of his reasoned decision.

Prior to the implementation of a disciplinary procedure, the headteacher and the educational team seek, as far as possible, any useful measure of an educational nature. The convening of the council thus appears as an ultimate and serious solution.

In compliance with local law, the internal regulations set the sanctions that can be imposed on students:

  • The warning
  • The blame
  • Temporary exclusion, which cannot exceed 5 days (from CP to 5eme)
  • Definitive exclusion from the establishment or one of its ancillary services.

The Principal can pronounce alone, the sanctions of the warning, the reprimand or the temporary exclusion of 5 days at most from the mostt when they are provided for by the internal regulations of the establishment drawn up in accordance with the provisions of article R.451-11 of the education code.

The Disciplinary Board is competent, when it is seized, to pronounce all the sanctions provided for in the internal regulations of the school, including those which may be imposed by the Principal alone.

4.I.4 Prevention, repair and support measures

Des mesures de prévention, de réparation (prononcées de façon autonome ou en complément d’une sanction), ainsi que des mesures d’accompagnement sont prises par le Proviseur ou le conseil de discipline.


4.II.1 Reprieve

A disciplinary sanction may be accompanied by a total or partial suspension.

4.II.2 Conservatory measures

Pending the appearance of a student before the disciplinary council, the Principal may prohibit him from entering the establishment.

4.II.3 Registration of penalties

The recording of sanctions, other than the definitive exclusion, is automatically erased one year after the notification of the sanction.
