Code of Ethics
At People Combine Educational Initiatives and all the entities that come under this group (including Oakridge International School, Westberry School, Oi Playshool, Vikas etc), we are committed to discharging our obligations to others in a fair and honest manner. We are also committed to respecting the rights and dignity of all persons. As faculty, staff, students, employees, management team and board members, we each bear responsibility not only for the ethics of our own behaviour, but also for building People Combine’s stature as an ethical and respect worthy institution.
We recognize that the fundamental relationships upon which our institution is based are those between students and teachers. These relationships are especially sacred and deserve extra special care that they not be exploited for any kind of motives or personal gain. We do the right thing even if no one is watching us or compelling us to do the right thing.
We are a non -discriminatory organization and do not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed, gender or religion. Because we are responsible not only for ourselves but also for others, we speak out against disrespectfulness and bigotry whenever and wherever we find it.
Our teaching as well as non- teaching staff is attentive and sensitive to the well-being of students. Protection of students from all abuse, including sexual abuse is the duty of each and every employee. We have a zero tolerance approach to any employee, vendor or visitor who may bring any sort of harm to our students. We follow all legal guidelines (POCSO Act) to ensure child safety and protection. In addition to the legal requirements, we also never lose sight of ethical considerations
We also nurture an environment free of sexual abuse for our teaching and non-teaching staff. We have a robust anti sexual harassment policy compliant with the law of the land. We protect our male as well as female employees from sexual harassment. The detailed policy is available for review on our Employee Self Service portal. The Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) has been formulated as per the below details in accordance with the legal requirements:
