Preamble

Royal Family Academy seeks to create an environment of care between staff and students and amongst students. Mutual respect and good manners are the basis of our caring ethos. The school has a positive and inclusive approach to managing behaviour through a range of positive behaviour management strategies. As an educational institution, we believe that a disciplined environment is necessary for effective teaching and learning to enable each student reach his/her potential.

Behaviour management is a central issue in which everyone has a role to play that is, pupils, staff and parents. The bible in 1 Cor. 14:40 encourage us to do everything decently and in order. To this end, students are provided with a framework of conduct which will prepare them for their adult life and to be successful in the work environment.

Royal Family Academic, as a faith-based institution, is poised to raising distinguished and disciplined leaders who will influence the global community positively.

The management is aware of the fact that there are bound to be incidence of misdemeanor that could impact negatively on the pupils/students of this great institution. It is against this background that we have decided to articulate probable cases of misdemeanor and their attendant penalties to dissuade people from flagrantly indulging in actions that are injurious to others. It is therefore important to mention, however that the penalties item is below are not intended for punitive purpose, but solely for social engineering, as well as/ to encourage soundness of character and decorum to all and sundry.

As Christians and law abiding citizens, we must take into cognizance the word of God as commanded by the Bible in Philippians 2:4 which says “Each of you should look not only to your own interest, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that as Christ Jesus”. Considering the fact that our children are looking up to us as role models we must therefore live up to the expectations by being good role models, whose lives preach Christ.
