The British College of Benalmádena – The British School of Málaga provides its pupils with an environment in which they can feel safe, cared for and supported, in which they can adequately develop their individual skills, helping them face the present world in an autonomous and critical way, preparing them to participate positively in society and in the diverse professional fields they might one day have access to.
To achieve these aims, we encourage our pupils to accept responsibilities and to be tolerant, to understand other people’s points of view, to help their peers and to maintain a high standard of work, the best they are capable of.
In addition, they must keep a code of behaviour based essentially on respect towards their teachers and their peers, as well as on some basic rules that, however obvious, are important to remember:
Most cases of unacceptable behaviour are spontaneous, thoughtless, unintended acts that the pupil immediately regrets. In these cases, the teachers will correct this sort of behaviour at once.
In the case of continuous unacceptable behaviour, parents will be requested to come to the school to consider the problem jointly with class teachers, form teachers, Head of Primary or Head of Secondary and, when necessary, with the Head Teacher.
Any student who jeopardises the integrity or safety of others will be expelled without hesitation.
We expect the parents to support us in implementing this code of conduct as we believe that, as in each and every aspect of education, discipline is a responsibility shared between parents and teachers.
