Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School fosters a positive approach to discipline both inside and outside the classroom. Children are rewarded for good behaviour and successes and they are consistently encouraged to accept responsibility for their own behaviour.
At the beginning of each year, teachers and children develop guidelines for the year. Children are required to meet the consequences of inappropriate behaviour.
Parents are notified at the beginning of each year of the School Rules and the procedures to be followed for dealing with inappropriate behaviour. These 11 rules and consequences are listed in the leaflet “Guidelines for Behaviour”.
If children are unhappy at school, and they do not want to tell a teacher about what is happening, it is important that parents discuss the matter with the class teacher. We cannot take action unless we are aware of problems. It is important to deal with any problems as soon as possible.
