Discipline Policy

At Bowcroft School, maintaining the dignity of each person, in all situations, is crucial in managing behaviour. Effective discipline comes from the belief that teaching individuals to take responsibility for their behaviour is more motivating in creating behaviour changes than teaching individuals to be obedient in order to avoid punishment.

We believe in the responsibility model of discipline. By implementing logical and consistent consequences, and providing individuals with opportunities to become responsible and caring members of the community, they will learn about their behaviour, their choices, and their impact on others while still maintaining their dignity.

Our mission is to ensure quality teaching and learning within a safe and caring environment.

Our goal is to continue to build a caring culture within our school community, where students, staff, and parents encourage, value, support one another, and feel safe; and where abuse, bullying, and discrimination are not accepted.
