An under-pinning value in Crawford International School is “education without fear.” By implication this requires that a positive and nurturing learning environment exists where individuality and mutual respect exists.

Discipline is extremely important to ensure students maximum access to learning and is engendered in a positive manner which is constructive and rewarding. Positive, well prepared lessons that are interesting and exciting, engage students and encourage an atmosphere where disruption is unlikely.

Students are guided to take responsibility for their own discipline and from Year 4 are required to sign a Code of Conduct which governs the relationship between the school and its students. The philosophy “A Commitment to Excellence” forms the basis of the Code and in line with this philosophy, mutual respect through a mature and dignified interaction is expected at all times. Discipline is managed through a system of warnings and demerits and should it be necessary, students may be asked to leave the school after attending a disciplinary hearing.

Crawford International School aims to create a school community that focusses on positive value driven interaction.
