SCHOOL AND CLASS RULES
Children contribute to class rules.
|While we do not have long lists of rules in school, the following rules are very important:|
All children are entitled to learn.
Disruptive behaviour in class or elsewhere in school is not tolerated.
Bullying is not tolerated.
Striking another child is not tolerated.
Disrespect to anyone is not tolerated.
Damage to property is not tolerated.
We expect our children to show respect for each other and for all adults.
We also expect that they will always show good manners and courtesy to all.
What is in the school belongs to the whole school.
Children should respect their own property and the property of others, their books and the equipment in their classrooms.
When we buy equipment we buy the best - children are encouraged to know that these resources are theirs.
We expect that pupils will use toilets properly.
Toilets always have spare toilet roll and soap.
If these should by chance run done children should report this immediately.
