School is, and should be, a safe and happy place to be. All children have the right to learn and no child has the right to stop others from learning. We encourage children to develop self-discipline by taking responsibility for their actions. Children are encouraged to show respect for others' feelings, religion and cultural backgrounds.

The school rules reflect the emphasis we place on caring for each other.

The following rules outline the high standards to behaviour expected in the classroom, in the playground, when on outings and when travelling to and from school.
