Code of Conduct

It is a requirement of the South African School’s Act (No. 84 of 1996) that the governing body of a public school “adopt a Code of Conduct for the learners…aimed at establishing a purposeful and disciplined school environment, dedicated to the improvement and maintenance of the quality of the learning process”. Additionally, it states that “nothing contained in this Act exempts a learner from the obligation to comply with the Code of Conduct of the school attended by such a learner”.

Milnerton Primary School is committed to the pursuit of excellence in education, embracing academic, cultural and sporting principles, as well as a sense of service to the community. Our Code of Conduct requires learners, parents and staff to adhere to an agreed set of norms and values, and to accept responsibility in promoting an atmosphere of mutual respect. We embrace a process of positive and restorative discipline. When a learner is in contravention of the Code of Conduct, the school will encourage a flexible approach, within the boundaries of the Code. The school will act within the best interests of the learner and the school in the application of disciplinary measures. Potential sanctions that are stipulated in this Code will be applied at the discretion of the Headmaster and /or Governing Body.

Notwithstanding the fact that a certain act or omission is not specifically covered by this Code of Conduct, any act or omission which, in the opinion of the Principal and/or Governing Body, constitutes behaviour unbecoming or not benefiting a learner of Milnerton Primary School shall be deemed to be a contravention of this Code. Our vision is to create a positive, stimulating and caring, learning environment so that Milnerton Primary School learner become well-rounded, happy and secure children who are well prepared to face future challenges; to reach their full potential and to contribute responsibly towards a global community.

This will be achieved by:

  • Developing a positive self-value in each child.
  • Respecting the individuality and diversity of all.
  • Developing self-discipline, independence and responsibility in a secure and supportive environment.
  • Stimulating and encouraging the child to reach their full, unique potential academically, culturally,
    spiritually and socially and to develop good sportsmanship.
  • Promoting a strong moral code with emphasis on upholding our school motto of “Faithfulness and Truthfulness”.
  • Striving for excellence in all we do.
  • Valuing and encouraging family involvement in all school activities.
