Behaviour Policy and Procedures of the School
The Behaviour Policy reflects the Mission and Vision of the school. "BFIS envisages to provide accessible, affordable and progressive educational environment that nurtures passion for learning, desire for advancement and sense of responsibility towards society."
We believe that rewarding good behaviour and providing encouragement promotes a climate of consideration for others and encourages good behaviour rather than merely deterring anti-social behaviour.
The behaviour we expect from children and all in our school community come from what we value. Our values also shape how we manage behaviour in our school. In BFIS we value:
- Create a safe and secure educational environment for students, teachers and school administration, remove obstacles to help them perform their duties as effectively as possible, and to meet parent expectations.
- Promote student positive behaviors and contribute to reducing behavioral problems and occurrence of negative behaviors at school.
- Provide teachers with appropriate educational methods, guidelines and effective approaches to address student behavior and to avoid incidents of acute physical and/or psychological harm or abuse.
- Introduce students and parents to school rules and regulations and to highlight the importance of adhering to such rules and regulations.
- Share and provide support to students to help them identify their needs, interests and to ensure their positive behaviors would significantly impact growth and development of their mental abilities.
- Foster ethos of mutual respect among students, teachers and parents and all school staff.
- Develop standardized procedures and ensure strict compliance by all schools, taking into account principles of equality, fairness and justice among all students in order to contribute to promoting sense of trust of parents in schools.
