Student Behaviour Policy

Learning that’s smooth sailing! Our study behaviour guidelines ensure a fun and focused learning environment for everyone.

Classroom Rules

Kids aged 5 to 13

Preparation:

  1. Dedicated Learning Space: Students should have a quiet, clutter-free area with minimal distractions for online classes.
  2. Technical Readiness: Ensure microphones and cameras are working before class starts. This allows for smooth participation and avoids technical delays.
  3. Positive Attitude: Encourage students to arrive dressed comfortably and ready to participate with a positive and enthusiastic attitude.

During Class:

  1. Active Listening: Students should raise their hands virtually (using the designated tool) to ask questions or share ideas, allowing the teacher to facilitate discussions effectively.
  2. Respectful Communication: Promote a classroom environment where students treat each other and the teacher with kindness and use respectful language.
  3. Minimized Disruptions: To ensure a focused learning environment, students should mute their microphones when not actively speaking.
  4. Active Participation: Encourage students to participate in class activities, games, and discussions to the best of their ability.

Additional Information:

  • Designated Breaks: Schedule short breaks during class time to allow students to use the restroom, grab a snack, or simply stretch.
  • Parental Support: We encourage parents to create a routine for online classes and help their children prepare the designated learning space before each session.

Secondary (children aged 13 to 16)

A better environment for teachers and students

The importance of communication, understanding and assertiveness in every class

We recognize that children learn and behave differently. Some days may be filled with tiredness, hunger, or frustration, leading to behavior that might seem disruptive. SpanishMI teachers are trained to address these situations with empathy and understanding.

Our Approach to Managing Behavior:

  • Empathetic Communication: Teachers will always address students in a calm and understanding manner.
  • Positive Reinforcement: Before resorting to warnings, teachers will strive to encourage positive behavior changes through redirection and positive reinforcement.
  • Collaborative Solutions: If necessary, teachers will work closely with students and parents to develop personalized “behavior contracts” to ensure a successful learning environment for all.
