EXPECTATIONS & BEHAVIORS
Fundamental Ground Rules
Perth Montessori School expects ALL members of the community to demonstrate kindness, courtesy, and respect toward the school and other community members. Refer to the Code of Ethics documents for more details.
The school has developed and adopted the following Mutual Respect Policy Statement:
“Verbal or physical abuse of students, staff, parents, community members or visitors is not acceptable. Everybody has the right to feel psychologically and physically safe at Perth Montessori School. Anyone who threatens others, in any way, will be asked to stop, and may be required to leave the school grounds.”
The goal of all Montessori education is to establish safe, warm and caring environments within which we teach students positive and appropriate ways to handle situations, rather than to assume that misbehaviour and punishment are inevitable; to develop a strong sense of self-discipline, responsibility and courtesy; to develop an atmosphere conducive to peaceful studies.
When anyone at the school finds it difficult to follow the school's expectations about interpersonal conduct, we will quickly bring the student, family, and staff together to work toward a solution.
The school follows an approach based on empowerment, mutual respect and trust. Neither corporal punishment, nor physical or emotional intimidation is allowed.
Perth Montessori is a smoke-free environment. No one may smoke on campus or at any school sponsored trip, party, or other activity. Perth Montessori will do everything in its power to discourage students from ever starting.
Care for the Environment
The entire school community is responsible for maintaining the order and neatness of the school environment.
Please help keep the school litter free by picking up rubbish or belongings that you find strewn around
