Discipline at St. Andrew School aims to lead children to self-discipline and ultimately to discipleship. We believe that children can be taught self-discipline skills as a part of the school curriculum. Our primary aim is to teach and help children develop self-discipline, but we also have a responsibility to establish rules and regulations to maintain an orderly, safe environment conducive to learning as self-discipline is being nurtured. Broad rules that affect the daily living together of all members of the school community include these:
1. SHOW RESPECT TO OTHERS, YOURSELF, AND YOUR SCHOOL
2. CONTRIBUTE TO THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT.
3. FOLLOW SCHOOL And CLASSROOM RULES/PROCEDURES.
The teachers work with the children to make sure the rules are understood and the reasons for the rules are taught. Throughout the school there is uniformity in purpose, but children learn that each adult may have different procedures to help them follow the rules. Children not only need to know and understand the rules, they need to know/understand how rules “safeguard each person’s rights.”
