Parish of Wicklow & Rathnew
Code of Behaviour Policy
The Aims of the Code of Behaviour of De La Salle Religion Class are:
To provide guidance for pupils, teachers and parents on behavioural expectations.
To provide for the effective and safe operation of the classes.
To foster caring attitudes to one another and to the environment
To enable teachers to teach their class without disruption.
Before or After Class
Students need to be on time and to be collected from class on time. Parents are reminded that they are responsible for their children before and after class and that hanging around unsupervised outside of class times may give rise to problems.
Parents of Year 1 & 2 Students for First Holy Communion should ensure that the teacher is present before leaving their children in the classroom. The children should be collected from their teacher after class at the main door of the Pastoral Centre.
As Communion classes take place directly after school children may bring a snack to eat provided that they leave their table and the classroom clean and tidy and dispose of any rubbish correctly.
