 REWARDS AND SANCTIONS POLICY

School’s Motto, Vision and Mission

Motto 

  Find True Wisdom 

  Vision 

  To be a centre of excellence in provision and promotion of quality education 

Mission

       ·               To help children become confident, informed, purposeful and independent.


       ·         To provide an enriching and stimulating environment within which the child becomes an active explorer.


       ·         To provide a framework of discipline which empowers a child to develop self-discipline and a strong sense of self.


       ·         To provide a cross-cultural environment in which the foundation of global peace may be laid.


       ·         To awaken children’s interest in all subjects and to encourage in them a love for learning.

In  support  of a holistic approach to the development of our pupils at Scholars, we seek to provide a structure for daily living within which behaviour is encouraged and supported.  At Scholars we employ a consistent system of rewards which addresses the needs of individual students as well as those of the whole school community.  We recognise and appreciate the achievements of students in all aspects of school life through school assemblies, appointments to positions of responsibility and the award of colours and prizes.  We have a system of awards and commendations to recognise the achievements of our students in a wide range of academic and extra-curricular activities.  These awards recognise the individual and the team nature of the students’ excellence, but also the contribution they make to our community as a whole.

The School recognises the contributions that students make and they are rewarded accordingly.  This will enhance the students’ belonging to the school and the environment.

Good discipline is also an essential ingredient of any school.  It is a prerequisite for a holistic approach to teaching and learning, and also upholds and facilitates the courtesy and respect which should characterise relationships among all students and staff.  It is, therefore, important that the School, through its staff and students, particularly the Prefects, but also through the influence which boys and girls exercise on one another, should work at all times to uphold this discipline, including those periods when students have finished for the day.

In this way, with each taking due responsibility, the general pattern of life at Scholars should help to create good habits among all members of the community.  When this is not of itself sufficient, especially in serious instances, effective action to curb and remedy indiscipline will be taken, with due consideration and compassion.

1.      All offences, will result in sanctions being imposed in accordance with the * MOE behavioural violations and their categories.  The context in which the offences have been committed will also be taken into account.

2.     Low level sanctions may accumulate, thereby resulting in a higher level of sanction being imposed.  When this is the case, only offences committed in the current term and three preceding terms will be considered.  Any punishments over four terms old will effectively not be cumulative, but may be taken into account detailing with a serious breach of the school rules.

In addition, pupils must bear in mind that transgressions occurring outside of the normal bounds of school jurisdiction may result in disciplinary sanctions, if it is considered that they have brought, or may potentially bring, the School’s name into disrepute.

The rewards and sanctions table that follow indicate how the different level of rewards may be achieved.  Equally, there is a table summarising the level of sanction that will be imposed for certain indiscretions.  However, this list is not exhaustive and merely a guideline for pupils, parents and staff.  The discretion of the Principal is applied to all rewards and sanctions.  He will consult with the Senior Management Team, Class Teacher and discipline in charge, before making a final decision.
