TCIS Student Behaviour


The Centagon International School-Wide Behaviour Management Plan

The stakeholders (teachers, students, parents, administration, support personnel, and community) of The Centagon International School (TCIS) work together to create and maintain a safe environment that promotes learning. This supports our school Mission Statement.

Purpose and Rationale

TCIS is committed to, and believes that, a safe and secure environment is essential so that all students can learn. Student behavior impacts student achievement. We are committed, as a school, to model respect for all people and provide instructional opportunities to assist children as they learn to live in a diverse society.

Research Review

Behaviour research suggests that achievement is directly affected by student behaviour and that fairness and consistency are keys to a successful discipline plan.

Analysis of Student Behaviour

TCIS uses assertive discipline. This means that each child is expected to control his/her own behaviour. Positive recognition is given to students who make appropriate behavioural choices. A succession of consequences is given for students who do not behave appropriately.

Code of Behaviour

TCIS common code for student behaviour:“Respect for self, others, and environment through care, courtesy, and cooperation”.
