Discipline & Behaviour Policy
Within a “family” of students rules are essential. These are mostly matters of common sense, to ensure the safety of our children and ensure that every student is able to work effectively.
We have adopted an ASSERTIVE DISCIPLINE POLICY. This means that the emphasis in the school is still to praise good behaviour, attitude and effort and increase the children’s awareness of the need to make a positive contribution to their community. Those who do so will be rewarded with stickers, certificates and special outings.
We, as a community EXPECT everyone in The International Middle School:
To be gentle and not hurt others physically or emotionally
To be helpful and polite to all those around them both at school and on the buses
To work hard and not waste their own or anyone else’s time
To look after and respect their own and other people’s property
To listen to other people without interrupting
To be honest and not hide the truth
Attend and represent The International Middle School at all National Ceremonies
HOWEVER, those who interfere with the education of other students will be dealt with quickly. When sanctions are necessary they will be appropriate to the individual child and the incident.
The sanctions process will be:
If a student behaves inappropriately they will be given a verbal warning about their behaviour.
If they fail to act on this and continue to behave inappropriately they will be sent out of the class for the rest of the lesson and will be given A FORMAL WARNING by means of a warning card. This will be sent home for you to sign. Their name will be entered in The Behaviour Book, listing what has occurred.
Three formal warnings will incur a one hour detention on the following Friday evening. This behaviour detention will remain on the student’s permanent record.
After 2 detentions, parents will be called in to construct a plan to enable their child to stay at the school.
If the student continues to behave badly, their place will be withdrawn so that other students are safe and do not have their education interrupted.
We hope that we can count on the support of ALL parents and guardians in our efforts to keep The International Middle School a happy and safe environment for all our students. Parents should be aware that any student caught swearing will be suspended and any student caught stealing or with tobacco, alcohol or drugs on the school site will be immediately expelled.
