You are here: Discipline
The school believes that sound and fair discipline is an important aspect of school life and that children should be taught to respect others and their environment. Self-discipline is an important attribute in adult life and the school aims to help children acquire this skill.
School rules are relevant to the well-being of others, the health and safety of pupils and staff and for the reinforcement of standards. Each pupil belongs to a Form and House group and the pastoral care of that group is co-ordinated by a member of the teaching staff. The pastoral care and discipline is re-enforced by the presence of Senior Staff.
In all matters of discipline we look to the parents/guardians to share responsibility with the school.
All members of our school community have the right to be treated with respect and to work in a clean, calm and safe environment.
a) To show respect for other people, their property and their point of view.
b) To work with a sense of purpose and be proud of their achievement.
c) To treat others as you would like them to treat you:
• Be polite, co-operative and friendly to other people;
• Make sure that where you have worked is tidy before you leave.
d) To show consideration for others by moving around the building quietly and
e) To not say or do anything that encourages bullying, e.g,
• Do not join in or initiate physical violence
• Do not behave in a way which may seem to be threatening behaviour
• Do not join in any ‘name calling’
• Do not exclude others from your discussions/activities.
Examples of good behaviour will be praised by the staff and drawn to the attention of others. Examples of this are:
• Consideration for others;
• Taking turns and sharing;
• Helping others to succeed.
Unacceptable behaviour will be dealt with immediately and appropriately.
