Over the past few months we have been involved in reviewing and redrafting our Code of Behaviour for St. Conleth & Mary’s Primary School. Our Code of Behaviour is an important document as it sets the tone for the expected behaviours in the school. We feel that this new Code is more reflective of our school community and is a positive document that we can use to reinforce the positives we see everyday.
While there are sanctions for some behaviours this document seeks to be positive overall, to promote rather than punish.
We have also included a new method of communicating and recording behaviours to children and parents. This card system communicates not only negative behaviours but reinforces positive behaviours and seeks to involve parents and guardians in celebrating them.
As a result of this review we have also had to develop 4 new policies that help strengthen not only our Code of Behaviour but also our responsibilities to Child Safeguarding. They are Homework, Uniform, Supervision and Healthy Eating.
We will be presenting these policies to the Board of Management for ratification on Thursday 25th June.
If you would like to make any comment on any of the policies please email BOM@stconlethandmarys.ie by 3pm on Tuesday 23rd June.
