MERIT & DE-MERIT SYSTEM
Condensed Version of the BPS Code of Conduct
30 January 2019
Dear Parents & Guardians
We aim to ensure firm but fair discipline with dignity. We believe that positive discipline and encouragement can often yield better results than punishment. Children have rights, but also responsibilities. If they do not act responsibly and respect the rights of others, the consequences will be disciplinary action. Please discuss this with your children.
Many positive discipline strategies and reward systems are in place and we trust that your children will benefit from these rewards during the year. We know that we can rely on our supportive parent body to help us instill good discipline at Bergvliet Primary School. Our Discipline Policy is built on the pillars of Care, Concern, Consistency and Counselling

CHILD ABUSE POLICY
Bergvliet Primary School’s Child Abuse Policy is based on the WCED policy document called “Abuse No More: Dealing Effectively with Child Abuse”, and will use the procedures and guidelines of this policy document when dealing with any reported incident of child abuse (suspected or confirmed).

This school is completely opposed to bullying and will not tolerate it. It is entirely contrary to the values and principles that we work and live by. All members of the school community have the right to work in a secure and caring environment. They also have a responsibility to contribute, in whatever way they can, to the protection and maintenance of such an environment.
