At Xenion Junior we believe that children must be supported to develop self-discipline and respect for themselves and for the people and places around them. This is a major theme in our HPSE syllabus and is reinforced in every aspect of our daily teaching. Lack of discipline and poor conduct affect students’ progress and are not acceptable at our school.
Our rules are simple, designed to create conditions which allow everybody to learn and teach in a civilized environment and we help children to understand that these rules must be followed.
In addition we operate a MERIT AND PENALTY POINTS SYSTEM, which encourages and acknowledges achievement and good conduct but also serves, if necessary, to impose sanctions on those few students who do not always behave as they should.
Our policy is to concentrate on encouraging positive behaviour and to create an ethos in which bad behaviour does not occur. However, if punishment is appropriate, parents will be fully informed.
