The vast majority of BSK students appreciate the exceptional education on offer, and so they are careful to follow the Student Charter and all regulations, thereby earning housepoints and other rewards.
Within the Secondary phase at BSK, all teachers operate a zero tolerance system, without warnings, if the Code of Conduct is broken in any way. All offences are logged on our student database.
Each unacceptable action has a negative points allocation, as shown below. These values have been chosen to enable the logging of intermediate values if there are clear mitigating circumstances.
When a student receives a behaviour point, their House will lose a point in the House Competition. Students are encouraged to support their housemates so that they may avoid receiving negative points.
Offences with values of 2 or above will result in immediate sanctions, as per the table below. So that repeated minor offences totalling 3 or above also result in a deterrent sanction, Department Coordinators (DCs) generate weekly negative points totals. The following sanctions are then applied to these weekly totals, after taking into account any ‘spent’ sanctions.
* Teachers will log 2 points and issue a break detention for a repeat occurrence of a 1-point offence in the same subject or, after consulting with their Subject Coordinator (SC) or the relevant DC, a particularly serious example of what would otherwise be a 1-point offence.
** Any student receiving three or more afterschool detentions within the same term will, in addition, be required to attend a weekend detention on Saturday from 09.00-11.00.
*** Parents may wish to request an internal one-day suspension in which the student does not attend normal lessons but completes work in school. The Head Teacher will consider all such requests.
**** Internal suspension is not an option if a student is suspended for three days. The Head Teacher will decide whether the student must serve the full three-day suspension immediately or whether only the first day will be served, with the second and third days served only if behavioural conditions set by the Head Teacher are not subsequently met.
In addition to the provisions detailed above, a repeated one-day suspension will result in a three-day suspension, at which stage a further 5+ point offence will result in permanent exclusion from the school, subject to the relevant Ministry of Education regulations.
A different procedure applies in instances of unacceptable behaviour on school buses.
