In circular 20/90 the Department of Education and Science presented a suggested Code of Behaviour and Discipline for National Schools.

The following strategies may be used to show disapproval of unacceptable behaviour:-

Reasoning with the pupil;

Reprimand (including advice on how to improve);

Temporary separation from peers, friends or others;

Loss of privileges;

Detention during a break or after school hours;

Prescribing additional work;

Referral to principal;

Communication with parents;

Suspension (Temporary); and

Expulsion.

  • Serious offences and certain inappropriate misbehaviour will be dealt with immediately by the Principal.

  • This may result in suspension from school. Suspensions can be for one, two or three days. The suspension of a pupil from school is a very serious matter. A pupil who is suspended will lose ten stamps, in addition to two for each day that he is suspended. In effect, this means that a suspended pupil will lose twelve, fourteen or sixteen Positive Discipline Stamps.
