In the primary school, class teachers are responsible for the pastoral care and safety of all the learners in their class. However in order to promote a culture of respect throughout the school there is a joint responsibility of care for all staff members towards the learners.
In the curriculum this culture of respect is specifically taught through the Personal Goals in the IPC and a programme for Personal Health and Social Education (PHSE).
Positive Behaviour Policy
The school's positive behaviour management policy creates an environment which gives teachers their right to teach and learners their right to learn without interference. Nexus International School believes in teachers working proactively with learners to solve behavioural problems in a creative, supportive and non-threatening manner. We place emphasis on showing learners the importance of responsibility. This responsibility training, which takes place in our PSHE lessons, encourages choices about behaviour and the acceptance of the consequences of those choices.
We are an International school and with a school community comprising of so many different Nationalities and cultures, respect is key to our success.
We expect that all members of the Nexus International School community will:
Learners who do not respect the rights of others and the rules of the school will be handled initially by the class teacher as necessary. If there is a serious shortcoming in a child's behaviour, his/her parent will be invited to discuss the matter with the relevant teacher at school. The management of the school will be kept informed on all issues and will intervene where necessary. The school reserves the right in cases that it considers sufficiently serious to suspend and/or expel a child.
