Code of Behaviour Scoil na gCeithre Maol

Introduction
This policy was put together by the teaching staff of Gaelscoil na gCeithre Maol in accordance with The National Educational Welfare Board guidelines for schools on developing a Code of Behaviour (2008).
Scoil na gCeithre Maol is a Gaelschool, in which we aim to create and maintain a happy atmosphere and nurture the educational, social, personal, physical and cultural development of the children in our care.

The aims of this Behaviour Code are:
•To allow the school to function in an orderly and harmonious way.
• To enhance the learning environment where children can make progress in all aspects of their development.

• To ensure the safety and well-being of all members of the school community.
• To assist parents and pupils in understanding the systems and procedures that form part of the Code of Behaviour and to seek their co-operation in the application of these procedures.

• Positive recognition is given to the children who make a big effort to speak Irish i.e Verbal praise.

Whole school Strategies for responding to inappropriate behaviour
• Use of an appropriate early warning system with clear indication that a sanction will follow. This allows time for the pupil to amend their behaviour.
