SAFETY & DISCIPLINE

The Beeches Kids Club (Cherry Orchard) aims to continue promoting and reinforcing the high profile of good behaviour that is already given in Cherry Orchard Primary. A good standard of behaviour is expected from the children, the staff, parents and carers. Any bullying, sexist, racist or other discriminatory language or behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

A set of basic rules (please see “The Code of Conduct” and “Behaviour Management” available upon request) is continually discussed with children and staff, and must be followed at all times. These rules aim to positively encourage courtesy and a caring attitude towards others.

Parents will be consulted at the earliest opportunity if the staff are experiencing any difficulty with their child/ ren's behaviour.

The club has the right to exclude a child if he or she is a disrupting influence on others.

However, a warning will be given in advance to parents.
