Parent’s Code of Conduct

Here is the school’s policy on The Parent Code of Conduct relating to the school.

 

PDFUnreasonable Complaints Policy

 

Parent Code of Conduct Policy

 

Introduction

We are very fortunate to have a supportive and friendly parent body. Our parents recognise that educating children is a process that involves partnership between parents, class teachers and the school community. As a partnership, our parents/carers will understand the importance of a good working relationship to equip children with the necessary skills for adulthood. For these reasons we continue to welcome and encourage parents/carers to participate fully in the life of our school.

 

Purpose and Scope

The purpose of this policy is to provide a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our school about the expected conduct. This is so we can continue to flourish, progress and achieve in an atmosphere of mutual understanding.

 

Guidance

We expect parents, carers and visitors to:

 

In order to support a peaceful and safe school environment the school cannot tolerate parents, carers and visitors exhibiting the following:

 

Should any of the above behaviour occur on school premises the school may feel it is necessary to contact the appropriate authorities and if necessary, even ban the offending adult from entering the school grounds.

We trust that parents and carers will assist our school with the implementation of this policy and we thank you for your continuing support of the school.

 

 

Appendix 1: Inappropriate use of Social Network Site

 

Social media websites are being used increasingly to fuel campaigns and complaints against schools, Headteachers, school staff, and in some cases other parents/students. The Governors considers the use of social media websites being used in this way as unacceptable and not in the best interests of the children or the whole school community. Any concerns you may have must be made through the appropriate channels by speaking to the class teacher, the Headteacher or the Chair of Governors, so they can be dealt with fairly, appropriately and effectively for all concerned.

 

In the event that any student or parent/carer of a child/ren being educated in the school is found to be posting libellous or defamatory comments on Facebook or other social network sites, they will be reported to the appropriate ‘report abuse’ section of the network site. All social network sites have clear rules about the content, which can be posted, on the site and they provide robust mechanisms to report contact or activity which breaches this. The school will also expect that any parent/carer or student removes such comments immediately.

 

In serious cases the school will also consider its legal options to deal with any such misuse of social networking and other sites. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly is the issue of cyber bullying and the use by one child or a parent to publicly humiliate another by inappropriate social network entry. We will take and deal with this as a serious incident of school bullying. Thankfully such incidents are extremely rare.

 

We would expect that parents would make all persons responsible for collecting children aware of this policy.

 

 

 

 

Appendix 2: Model letters

 

Dear Parent,

 

I have received a report about your conduct on (enter date and time).

 

[Add summary of the incident and of its effect on staff, students, other parents.]

 

We believe staff, parents and children are entitled to a safe and protective environment in which to work. Behaviour that will cause harassment, alarm or distress to users of the premises is contrary to the aims of the school. I must inform you that St Peter’s School will not tolerate conduct of this nature on its premises and will act to defend its staff and students.

 

I am therefore informing you that should the school staff have any further concerns about your behaviour formal procedures will be followed.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Headteacher

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Parent,

The Headteacher has already contacted you on ______. On the advice of the Headteacher I am therefore informing you that should the school staff have any further concerns about your behaviour you will be asked not to enter the premises and you could be prosecuted under Section 547 of the Education Act 1996. If convicted under this section, you are liable to a fine of up to £500.

Dear Parent,

 

I have received a report from the Headteacher about your conduct on (enter date and time).

 

[Add summary of the incident and of its effect on staff, students, other parents.]

 

I must inform you that St. Peter’s will not tolerate conduct of this nature on its premises and will act to defend its staff and students. On the advice of the Head teacher I am therefore instructing that (for a temporary period) you are not to reappear on the premises of the School. If you do not comply with this instruction I shall arrange for you to be removed from the premises and prosecuted under Section 547 of the Education Act 1996. If convicted under this section, you are liable to a fine of up to £500.

 

The withdrawal of permission for you to enter the school premises takes effect straightaway. However, I still need to decide whether it is appropriate to confirm this decision. Before I do so, I wish to give you an opportunity to give me in writing any comments or observations of your own in relation to the report which I have received from the Head teacher. These comments may include any expressions of regret on your part and any assurances you are prepared to give about your future good conduct. To enable me to take a decision on this matter at an early point, you are asked to send me any written comments you wish to make by (state date ten working days from the date of letter).

If on receipt of your comments I consider that my decision should be confirmed, you will be supplied with details of how to pursue a review of the circumstances of your case.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Chair of Governors
