Code of Conduct

Positive discipline is achieved in an informal, yet structured, environment.


The Reddam House philosophy is structured to create a sense of freedom within which individuality is encouraged, personal growth and self-confidence promoted and freedom of expression is encouraged. The extent of that freedom is defined by the Discipline Code and the responsibility is placed on the Student to enjoy the freedom within the parameters of this Code. Reddam House offers an education without fear. The Discipline Code is a partnership between Reddam House, Parents and Students and is applicable whilst Students and Parents are on Reddam House’s premises, at School functions or on any occasion where they are identifiable as Reddam House Students or Parents.


The Code is to be read in conjunction with Reddam House rules, policies and protocols and should be considered from the perspective of the core values and ethos of Reddam House. By submitting an application for admission to Reddam House and accepting a place that may be offered by Reddam House, Parents and Students confirm that they have accepted and are bound by this Code, Reddam House rules, policies and protocols as well the core values and ethos of Reddam House.


The Staff understand and are bound by the policies and shall apply them accordingly.
It is the responsibility of Parents to support Reddam House in enforcing the Code. Parents are requested to communicate any concerns openly and constructively to the Head of School and to do so without lobbying other parents, other students, members of staff or outside parties until such time as all internal processes have been exhausted.
