Code of Conduct The Corsham School – Primary Festivals

 

Rationale

 

Everyone has the right to enjoy, participate and feel safe.

 

Goal – for more students to engage in competitive sport and healthy active lifestyle.

 

 

Participants

 

All must participate within the rules and must respect the rights, dignity and worth of participants, teachers, volunteers, and officials.  Adhere to The Corsham School’s policies and all other relevant policies, guidelines and codes.

 

Never argue with officials’ decisions.

 

Treat all players as you yourself would like to be treated.  Keep your self-control at all times.

 

Be a “good sport” and recognise all good play, whether by your team or by your opponent’s team.

 

Accept victory modestly and defeat graciously, remembering that all schools could be judged by your behaviour.

 

Remember that the aims of the game are to have fun, improve your skills and feel good.

 

 

Parents/Carers

 

Use correct and proper language at all times.

 

Young people play school sport for fun; they shouldn’t be identified if they make mistakes – mistakes are part of learning.

 

Encourage your child to play to the rules while discouraging arguing with officials; the referee is correct (even when you may not agree with their decision).

 

Set a good example by recognising fair play and applauding the good performances of all, including opponents.

 

Turn losing into winning by helping your child to work towards skill improvement and good sportsmanship.

 

Read the rules of the game to understand better what you are looking at and commenting on.

 

Always maintain the very high reputation schools/teams have earned for its appreciation of good play by both teams whether you win, lose or draw.

 

Recognise the value and importance of teachers, volunteer coaches and officials.  They give their time and resources to provide school sport opportunities and deserve support.

 

 

Cluster Teachers, Staff and Coaches

 

Ensure that there is a complete understanding of the School Games Pack.

 

Ensure that young people are listened to and consider their wellbeing and safety before the development of performance.

 

Develop an appropriate working relationship with performers, based on mutual trust and respect.

 

Set the example for all players, parents/carers and spectators.

 

Ensure that each player is appropriately dressed with the team kit.
