Behaviour rules for students

Library

Novopecherska School library is an information center. The collection of fiction, popular science, reference literature and periodicals of our library has several thousand copies.

Comfortable computer and print-zones help students accomplish their training tasks. The computers in the library can be used during the lessons only for educational purposes and with the support of the teacher.

The mission of the library is to provide the educational process with all the necessary literature, to create a cozy atmosphere for students to work with the book, to encourage the reading of little and adult readers. For this purpose, various interesting activities are held at the library, such as the Library Day for primary school students, meetings with writers, quests, and language clubs for senior pupils. Students are fond of attending foreign language classes in the library, doing their homework and spending their free time.

The textbooks and books the student takes in the library is the property of the School and must be returned at the end of the school year.

Progressive discipline policy

The mission of Novopecherska School states that we develop moral and ethical spiritual qualities of the student and sense of understanding of others. Our vision implies that students must be organized, conscious, caring and responsible; they must respect the rights of others and contribute to the common good.

With this in mind, we have created a progressive discipline that reflects the mission and vision of Novopecherska School.

Of course,the conflict naturally takes place in any large group of people. And our goal is to teach how to resolve conflicts, using positive strategies to get winning results. It may happen that some students will find it difficult to comply with the requirements established in the common interest.

The school leadership is responsible for ensuring compliance with the rules of conduct for students, and should have considerable discretion to meet the individual needs of students and make judgments in the context of specific circumstances. Consequences of non-compliance with the expected behavior may vary in each individual situation for each individual student.

In the case of slight or minor fault, the teaching staff of the School should help students to understand the misconduct of their actions and use such situations to teach children to find alternatives with positive outcomes.

In the case of improper conduct, disciplinary measures must be applied within the framework that shifts the focus from punishment to another, corrective and sympathetic ones. The school will use series of activities aimed at positive behavior enhancing and helping students determine the right choice.

The code of student behavior, rules and expectations are reviewed and reinforced on an ongoing basis by teachers, staff and management through general meetings, announcements, class attendance by the director, and day-to-day by teachers in the classroom.

Behaviour during lessons and breaks

Students should be attentive to classes during classes and not to interfere with others. Students can not refuse to perform the tasks that the teacher sets. For the effectiveness of the learning process and in order not to interrupt it, students must be in the classroom throughout the class. If there is an urgent need to quit, this can only be done with the permission of the teacher.

Students should be careful during breaks. It is not allowed to run during breaks, because such behavior can harm the student or his environment. Students must also move on the right side of the corridor or stairs.

Skipping classes

During absence in the School, the student can study remotely with the help of SMLS.

When the student returns to the School after missing for 3 days or more due to the illness, you must necessarily provide the appropriate medical certificate with the doctor's seal, after which the student will be admitted to the classes.

If a student is unable to attend a school on any day due to illness or for any other reason with the knowledge of parents, it is necessary to provide a corresponding application from the parents before the beginning of the school day.

Please pay attention to the fact that the learning process can not be entirely individual. For the full-fledged educational process of the 21st century, it is necessary to work in a group, to solve problems together and to cooperate.

In the case of 10 passes without a valid reason during the academic year, the issue may be submitted for consideration for deduction from the School.

The students who are late for the first lesson spend it separately from their class, accompanied by a regular teacher. At this time, students can work with educational material using a tablet.
