Our Approach to Discipline
The School’s approach to discipline is for every Kranjian to strive to nurture to be self-reflective and self-disciplined.
Effective discipline is based on a consistent philosophy which the School endeavours by allowing opportunities for reflections and circle times.
The School aims to promote the School Values to our students - R³CIP, which covers the following basic philosophy for developing good discipline in students:
• The goal of discipline is to teach students how to develop self-regulation.
• Discipline is a learning process to develop students' thinking and moral compass.
• A whole-school, multi-faceted approach is required.
Restorative Practices and Relational Circles
A key strategy for developing good discipline is to build our students’ Social and Emotional (SEL) Competencies by:
• Creating a supportive and structural environment.
• Teaching values, social and emotional skills.
• Providing opportunities for students to exercise good behaviour.
• Guiding and re-orientating students through restorative practices who have erred in their behaviours.
Engagement with Stakeholders
Consistent collaboration with various stakeholders is paramount in effective discipline. This includes partnerships with parents/guardians and various external agencies to help our students become self-disciplined individuals of good character and uphold the School Values.
