WRITING THE NEW POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR AND DISCIPLINE POLICY

Following the beginning of a new academic year, the teachers attended two workshops, one run by Rachel and one by Nicola Tansley (former Primary school Head teacher & child psychologist). The need for a more long lasting and uniform approach to discipline and behaviour was discussed and positive approaches agreed upon by all.

On Saturday 3rd May all students from 1st-8th class discussed discipline and behaviour, and the students themselves, in small discussion groups, collectively made up the new school rules for staff and students and were involved in every stage of the process. They did very well, and understood the need to word everything positively and supportively. This week they are continuing to work on this most important topic and are designing their own posters of the new school rules, to be displayed in every classroom as a reminder to all of our positive intentions.

Here are the rules the students themselves wrote; Very impressive and mature!

  1. We will respect and help each other.
  2. We will behave well and keep our hands to ourselves.
  3. We will keep ourselves and our school clean.
  4. We will always tell the truth.
  5. We will do our best and work  hard. We will listen and study carefully.
  6. We will help each other learn and support students who need extra help.
  7. We will help and look after younger children.
  8. We will arrive on time to school and lessons.
  9. We will look after school property.
  10. We will respect other people’s property.
