Code of Behaviour

Our behaviour policy has ensured that there is a consistency of approach across TMS with pupils understanding the expectations of staff and the possible rewards and sanctions. See four step plan below.

The Maths Society: Model Code of Behaviour

At The Maths Society, we believe in creating a positive and productive learning environment for all our students. These guidelines outline the expected behaviour for all students attending our Saturday tuition centre.

 

Respect:

  • Treat all members of The Maths Society community, including teachers, staff, and fellow students, with respect and courtesy. This includes using polite language, avoiding disruptive behaviour, and actively listening to others.

  • Respect the learning environment by keeping classrooms and common areas clean and tidy.

 

Responsibility:

  • Be responsible for your own learning: Arrive on time, come prepared with your learning materials, and actively participate in class activities.

  • Complete homework assignments diligently and to the best of your ability. Seek clarification from your teacher if you encounter difficulties.

  • Be accountable for your actions and take responsibility for any mistakes or disruptions you may cause.

 

Positive Attitude:

  • Maintain a positive and respectful attitude towards learning and others.

  • Be willing to cooperate with teachers, staff, and classmates.

  • Contribute to a positive and supportive learning environment by encouraging and motivating others.

  • Disciplinary actions may include verbal warnings, loss of privileges, or, in severe cases, temporary or permanent exclusion from the program.

 

By adhering to these guidelines, we can ensure a positive and productive learning experience for everyone at The Maths Society.

 

The Maths Society: Four-Stage Plan for Managing Breaches in the Model Code of Behaviour

 

At The Maths Society, we are committed to providing a positive and productive learning environment for all students. This four-stage plan outlines the process for addressing breaches of our Model Code of Behaviour.

Stage 1: Informal Intervention

  • Minor infractions: Initial breaches, such as occasional disruptions or forgetting materials, will be addressed through informal interventions.

  • Teacher-led: The teacher will address the issue in private, reminding the student of the expected behaviour and providing guidance for improvement.

  • Documentation: While formal documentation is not required at this stage, the teacher will make a brief note of the incident for future reference in case of repeated infractions.

 

Stage 2: Formal Warning

  • Repeated or more serious breaches: Repeated instances of minor infractions or a single incident of a more serious nature will result in a formal warning.

  • Meeting with student and parent/guardian: The teacher will schedule a meeting with the student and their parent/guardian to discuss the incident and the expectations outlined in the Model Code of Behaviour.

  • Documentation: A formal record of the meeting and the warning will be documented and kept on file.

  • Consequence: Depending on the severity of the incident, a consequence may be implemented, such as detention or temporary loss of privileges.

 

Stage 3: Restorative Action Plan

  • Continued or serious breaches: Continued disregard for the code after receiving a formal warning may require a restorative action plan.

  • Collaborative effort: The student, teacher, parent/guardian, and centre management will work together to create a plan that addresses the underlying causes of the behaviour and outlines steps for improvement.

  • Focus on restoration: This stage emphasizes repairing any harm caused by the student's actions and helping them develop strategies for positive behavioural change.

  • Monitoring and support: The plan will be monitored and reviewed regularly to assess progress and provide ongoing support to the student.

 

Stage 4: Temporary or Permanent Exclusion

  • Last resort: In cases of severe or repeated breaches that pose a significant risk to the safety and well-being of others or disrupt the learning environment, temporary or permanent exclusion from the program may be considered.

  • Meeting with centre management: The student and their parent/guardian will meet with centre management to discuss the potential consequences, including the possibility of exclusion.

  • Decision-making: The centre management will make a final decision based on the severity of the incident, the student's history of behaviour, and the effectiveness of previous interventions.

 

Throughout this process, The Maths Society will prioritize clear communication, fair treatment, and a focus on supporting students in making positive behavioural changes.
