Our Approach to Behaviour

We place a great deal of importance on developing the personal and social skills young people need in order to function well as positive citizens. The school therefore expects the kind of standards of behaviour that would be expected in any professional workplace.

The Swan is a calm, purposeful environment to work and learn; we will not tolerate any behaviour that disrupts learning or makes any member of our community feel unsafe. All of our school rules are related to our values of ambition, dedication, kindness, and integrity and we take the time to clearly explain our expectations to our students.

We believe that children should understand that there are consequences associated with poor behaviour. We therefore have a clear set of sanctions that are applied calmly and consistently by staff. We aim to treat all students the same and do not accept excuses for rule-breaking. 

We ask parents to support us in upholding our rules so that every child can succeed.
