CODE OF CONDUCT
At Brighton International School, the code of conduct governs the conduct, rules, behaviour and discipline of the pupil, teachers and all those involved. Adherence to the code is paramount and the custodian to safe keep the integrity of the code is the school ‘code of conduct’ committee. The committee comprises of the Principal, Vice Principal & the Headmaster of Brighton International School. The School code of conduct committee is available to any student seeking clarity, help or guidance in all matters relating to school conduct. Students are expected to honour the code of conduct, both within the school and when they travel outstation to represent the school. When student’s behaviour does not meet required standards, the committee will oversee disciplinary action and inform parents, coordinators and other administrators as necessary. All disciplinary action is viewed as a learning opportunity for students to adopt more responsible behaviour. Ignorance of school code, violation of the school rules or disciplinary guidelines will not be accepted and will invite consequences as deemed fit by relevant authorities.
Upon Joining the Brighton International School, all Students and Parents must read, understand and agree by the school’s code of conduct.
Interfering, or attempting to interfere, with the discharge of the official duties of school personnel by using direct, deliberate, or focused threats, force, or violence, such that the staff person believes his or her safety or the well-being of his or her property is in danger. All of this will be considered as a serious offence and violation of the code.
The purpose of the disciplinary policy and the code of conduct at the school is to ensure high safety standards and personal growth of students. Recognizing that students tend to respond differently, the policy allows for variable consequence within the frame of reference. The objective is to help students reflect, take responsibility and change behaviour. Repeated violation of the same disciplinary infraction will be considered disobedience. This defiance in accepting correction for having poor choices will result in more severe disciplinary action.
Addition consequences may also be included at the discretion of the school if the situation arises. The Code of conduct is aimed at creating a harmonious community, for which self-discipline is vital. Hence, apart from what is mentioned in the code, rules and regulation communicated by the School from time to time need to be adhered to The Code of Conduct of the school is subject to amendment in keeping with the interest of the school and changing times.
