Oxford Manor runs a vigorous disciplinary program. We truly believe for a school to be successful, scholars must have a level of discipline. Discipline comes in many forms, such as: DOING HOMEWORK!, Punctual attendance, obeying instructions, showing proper respect to elders and knowing how to treat their peers with respect regardless of their background.

Discipline is a lifestyle. Children are given moral instruction in whatever they do to support this value. Scholars are expected to use their discipline not only in school, but outside. We do not believe in corporal punishment, but we have a variety of systems that we will use to teach your child the valuable lifestyle of discipline. For further information, see our parents’ handbook.

The first approach we use is to let our scholars know our expectations as a school. After that, if the expectations are not met, we go into dialogue with the scholar. At this age, a child should be able to defend their choice to not follow instructions. If it should happen again, your child will be subject to our demerit system. Merit awards are also given for various areas of school life in order to provide an incentive for good behaviour. For further information, see our parents’ handbook.
