Code Of Conduct

St Anne’s Code of Conduct for Parents

Mission Statement

We grow together as a Catholic Faith Community, as we follow and promote Gospel values in all we do. We grow together in wisdom, as we encourage each child to achieve their full potential, academically, spiritually and socially and in a spirit of confidence. We grow together in respect, friendship and responsibility, as we reach out to those in our wider community. We Grow Together in God’s Love.

St Anne’s RC Primary School has a code of conduct for parents. It says the purpose is:

To provide a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our school about the expected conduct so we can continue to flourish, progress and achieve in an atmosphere of mutual understanding.

The school expects parents and carers to:

  • Always respect the caring ethos of the school

  • Always understand that parents and teachers need to work together for the benefit of children

  • Always demonstrate in their own behaviour that all members of the school community should be treated with respect and understand that even if there is conflict due to a member of staff’s oversight, parents must remain calm and respectful

  • Always approach school staff to help resolve issues

  • Always work with the school to build relationships with its staff

  • Always know that children can not be moved on request of the parent

  • Always seek to clarify a child’s version of events with the school’s view in order to bring about a peaceful solution to any issue

  • Always correct their own child’s behaviour, especially where it could lead to conflict

  • Always avoid using staff as threats to admonish children


In order to support a peaceful and safe school environment the school does not tolerate:

  • Disruptive behaviour which interferes or threatens to interfere with the operation of a classroom, office or other area of school grounds

  • Loud or offensive language, swearing, cursing or displaying temper

  • Threating to do actual bodily harm to a member of school staff, governor, visitor, parent/carer or pupil

  • Damaging or destroying school property

  • Sending abusive or threatening emails, text/voicemail/phone messages or other written communication

  • Defamatory, offensive or derogatory comments regarding the school or any of the pupils/parents/staff at the school on Facebook or other social media sites

  • The use of physical aggression towards another adult or child. This includes physically punishing your own child on school premises

  • Chastising someone else’s child

  • Smoking, or consuming alcohol or drugs whilst on school property

  • Bringing dogs on to school premises (other than guide dogs)


If any of these behaviours occur the school may contact the appropriate authorities including the Police and, if necessary, ban the offending adult from entering school grounds.
