School Rules

All visitors (including parents) to the school are expected to report to the School Office. Parents are always welcome. Parents wishing to meet a class teacher may make an appointment to do so.

At St. Mary's we feel that good behaviour is the foundation for successful teaching and learning. We also believe that it is the responsibility of all the members of the school community to manage pupil behaviour. High standards of behaviour are expected from pupils at all times. For our part, we will foster self-discipline by helping our pupils understand and work within the boundaries of the school's 'Policy for the Promotion of

Good Behaviour.'

Our aims are to:

v Nurture our children's innate affection and sensitivity

v Promote their self -esteem

v Develop their self -control and responsibility towards others

v Encourage care of our environment and facilities

v Nurture their abilities to work and play co-operatively.

Our children are expected to:

1. Treat all persons and property with respect

2. Always behave in a polite, courteous and responsible manner

3. Walk around the school in an orderly and quiet manner

4. Be in the playground at 8.50 a.m.

5. Stand in silence when the bell rings at the end of each play

6. To observe our uniform code

At all times, we seek to encourage, recognise and celebrate good behaviour and achievement. We have a system of rewards based on a house point system. Children's work will be regularly displayed and celebrated.

Our children are expected to resolve all disputes or differences constructively. We have devised the following three-step approach to assist them

If I am called a name or insulted I will:

Step One - tell them I do not like it and ask them to please stop.

(There can be no confusion that it was just a joke)

Step Two - I will warn them that I will tell an adult if they do not stop.

(They are given two opportunities to stop)

Step Three - I will tell an adult. (I will be supported and I do not need to retaliate)

I will always be positive and polite.

The use of physical aggression is totally unacceptable. Bullying (the systematic pattern of physical or verbal intimidation) is regarded as a serious breach of discipline and will not be tolerated. Allegations will be thoroughly investigated. If confirmed, parents will be contacted and future conduct will be closely monitored.
