Code of Conduct


At SFS Public School ICSE & ISC we believe, “Good behaviour and discipline are key foundations for good education”. Courtesy and good manners together with self-discipline and a proper respect for authority, are encouraged at all times and are important if we are to make our school a true, caring community. We encourage children to take responsibility for their actions.

Self-discipline is the basis of emotional intelligence. This self-discipline must emerge not only from the rules of the school, but also from a sense of respect for others, the institution and community as a whole. We have formulated school discipline policies entered on a Code which emphasises conduct and consequences, affecting student’s behaviour both in and out of school.

In order for our policies to be successful, cooperation, compliance, positive reinforcement and correction are required from teachers, parents and peers. We aim to develop young people with integrity and vision and create a warm, happy school peopled with high achievers and sensitive contributors.
