The internal rules of the students


The rules of school life are intended to establish the way of living together with respect for everyone.  


Living together at the agency/school commits everyone, students, guarantors, stakeholders and educational managers to adopt attitudes that life in community demands, that is to say:


- Respect for others, their work, their property

- Respect for places

- Proper moral and physical dress



1/ School time

Absences and delays cause you to lose valuable theoretical, technical and practical teaching provided by working professionals who will not repeat this course.  


This pedagogical face-to-face meeting is therefore lost on you and you risk falling behind prejudicially for your passage to the next year.  Attendance  (regular attendance)  to classes is a legal obligation.  Students are invited to enter the agency/school as soon as the doors open.  

Opening hours: 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Morning class: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Lunch: 12 p.m.-1 p.m.

Afternoon lessons: 1 p.m.-4 p.m.

Creative permanence: 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Delays are not tolerated, except with an SNCF or RATP proof.  The official class time is 9 a.m.  (except in exceptional cases announced by the management), at 9:10 a.m. the doors are closed, you are asked to wait until 10:30 a.m. to return to class.  


The lobby of the building is by no means a space in which you can wait.  In the event of an unjustified delay, you are requested to go up to the school floor discreetly and report your delay. You wait for the break to integrate the course, if however the speaker agrees.  


For any unjustified delay you will be  registered as absent from class.  In the afternoon, classes resume at 1 p.m., unless the speaker or the management indicates it.

Health issues must be reported to the facility. The establishment is not empowered to dispense medication on its own initiative.

4/ Absences

In case of absence, you must notify the school at the latest in the morning.  


After 3 unjustified absences, the guarantors are kept informed, to warn them of the risks that repeated absences pose to the smooth running of the year and the fact that the transition can only be made if all the expected skills are acquired. .  


After 6 unjustified absences, a temporary exclusion is planned and will jeopardize obtaining the modules.  Beyond that, a definitive exclusion may be considered. The student must imperatively submit written proof whatever the reason and duration of the absence upon their return (doctor, letter from the guarantor). Appointments must be made outside school hours (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.).  


Students must complete the work requested of them by the lecturers and submit their work to the control methods of the courses given to them,  even during and after an absence.

The entrance doors to the building and the agency/school must always be closed, for security reasons.


No groupings or noise pollution are allowed in the hall of the building. No person outside the establishment is authorized to enter the school, including during the assembly of the jpos, without the management being informed.


Students must contribute to the cleanliness of the school so that the living environment can be pleasant and healthy.  Out of respect for all, they will not throw anything anywhere other than in the bins provided for this purpose.  The establishment emphasizes the student's environment, so everyone will ensure that the equipment is respected and that the rooms are clean. It is strictly forbidden to use "fixatives and aerosols".  


In the case of work, such as cutting, painting, drawing, etc.  The student is responsible for cleaning his space  (table, chair, floor).
