Code of Behaviour


In Gaelscoil Thaobh na Coille our daily aim is to cultivate a happy, peaceful, positive atmosphere and environment in which each pupil can develop their true potential to the full. We hope that this Code of Behaviour will aid us in our continuing efforts to foster positive relationships and school values. We also hope that it will serve as a framework for positive behaviour.


The code of behaviour aims to achieve three things:

•  The creation of an effective stimulating environment, through regulating behaviour, in which the pupils can learn.

•  To achieve a high standard of behaviour throughout the school with respect shown for the school surroundings.

•  To nurture self-discipline in the pupils, based on respect, on tolerance and on understanding of other people.


If the school is to achieve the highest standard in every aspect of the school life, it is important that there is an effective structure in place, which will promote positive behaviour/ outlook and discourage bad behaviour. To achieve this, the code of behaviour places more emphasis on diligence than unruliness. Having said that, it is often necessary to implement a standard of behaviour conducive to fostering and nurturing the goodwill and good disposition of pupils and thus discourage misbehaviour on the part of any pupil so inclined. The teachers certainly understand that no two children are alike and therefore discretion has to be used from time to time.
