Code of Conduct

It is important that all of us remember that:

• We are an individual community that values the work and needs of every child.
• This means that we must be aware of our surroundings and help to keep them pleasant.
• Your behaviour must be reasonable in that it helps to provide security for all.
• This can only happen if we have mutual respect for others.
• Above all it is important that we help to provide an environment that encourages and supports your learning.

A few simple rules will help you to learn and help build a caring community.
