Conduct & Concerns

Our behavior towards self, staff and schoolmates is respectful and reflective. As a school we recognize that focusing on a positive, safe and secure school atmosphere is enhanced when school standards and codes of conduct are emphasised.

Children should:

  • Respect and be tolerant of others
  • Be honest, fair, kind and considerate towards others
  • Be active in helping to look after others
  • Respect property and the environment in and out of school
  • Respect belongings, both others and their own
  • Be polite and courteous at all times
  • Work to the best of their abilities, and allow others to do the same
  • Follow instructions of school staff and other adults working with them
  • Follow the Golden Rules and take responsibility for their own actions

Staff should:

  • Model, encourage and develop the above qualities in children in their care, setting clear standards and expectations of behaviour
  • Make time to discuss the school’s expectations with children (formation of class rules etc).
  • Encourage, praise and reward good behaviour
  • Encourage reflection on situations and the development of empathy
  • Encourage children to suggest solutions to problems wherever possible
  • Encourage children to take responsibility for their own behaviour and learning
  • Raise children’s self-esteem and develop their full potential
  • Create a safe and pleasant environment, physically and emotionally
  • Provide challenging, interesting and relevant learning opportunities
  • Use rules and sanctions clearly and consistently
  • Ensure the appropriate supervision of children throughout the day
  • Form relationships with parents so that there is open communication of positive and negative behaviour and all children can see that the key adults in their lives share a common aim
  • Recognise that each child is an individual, being aware of their personal needs

Parents should:

  • Demonstrate respect for others
  • Be aware and supportive of the school’s expectations and their implementation
  • Co-operate and be supportive to ensure that the school’s objectives become reality
  • Foster good relationships with the school, providing teachers with any information about their child that may affect his/her well-being, behaviour and safety
  • Follow the Golden Rules when in School
  • Encourage independence, self-discipline and responsibility in their children
  • Show an interest in all that their child does in school.
