Children should, first and foremost, learn habits of good behaviour at home.
We try to create a school environment in which we all look after each other. We all have the responsibility to consider other people’s feelings and needs as we expect others to consider ours. Everybody has the right to be treated as an individual and to be respected as such.
Our policy with regard to discipline is to be “firm and fair” to treat the children as any reasonable parent or adult would. The best discipline is self-discipline and learning this degree of self-control is a lengthy process, which if handled carefully, helps to produce responsible and considerate adults. Our Behaviour Policy takes into account the views and ideas of the staff and the children and represents a framework of rules, sanctions and rewards.
In cases of serious and persistent misbehaviour, the child’s parents will be informed and requested to take appropriate supportive action.
