The school operates a “House” system, P4 to P7, and as a positive approach emphasis is on the awarding of points for effort, integrity, good manners etc. .
In P1-3 helping, caring, sharing and kindness are encouraged and rewarded within each class.
To encourage service and responsibility throughout the school, pupils are allocated tasks such as tidying and organising class libraries, organising resources to carry out tasks and assignments. In addition P7 pupils participate in a monitor system.
Pupils are made aware of the high expectations of home and school and accept that they should strive to give of their best in all things.
The school policy is one of zero tolerance on bullying or any form of discrimination. The school endorses the authority's Multi-cultural and Anti-racist Guidelines. Any concerns about incidents of this nature should be communicated to the Headteacher immediately.
Each class from P3 upwards, annually elects two representatives to meet weekly with the headteacher to discuss and decide school issues.
School rules exist for the safety and well being of all pupils. They support the acceptable standards of behaviour and discipline necessary for harmony among a large number of individuals. Courtesy to and consideration for others, respect for property, integrity and industry are the basic elements in promoting an atmosphere conducive to sound learning and the progressive development of self-discipline.
The 'Golden Rules' adopted by the school are displayed throughout the buildings.
Where there has been a serious breach of school rules or where normal sanctions do not produce an acceptable standard of behaviour the parents will be contacted for further discussion.
