Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

St Thomas More Catholic School community is a place where every individual should be treated with respect and dignity. The code of conduct exists so that the school is a safe, orderly and happy environment where students can learn to the best of their ability. 

Belonging to a Christian community means we all have to have a concern for the well-being of others and co-operate with them. The care and concern that we show ourselves and others in school should extend to our families, parishes and communities. 
The code of conduct can be summed up by our three school rules for behaviour:
