Code of Conduct

In addition to the Group Expectations Policy, we have a Code of Conduct in the Scout Section that all members follow. It was developed by the Scouts themselves, and helps ensure our meetings are enjoyed by everyone.

  • Listen to others as they speak
  • Always wear your uniform neatly and tidily
  • Be polite and respectful to everyone
  • Be fair and honest
  • If a Leader raises their hand, be quiet and listen
  • Be safe
  • Be kind and considerate
  • Be silent in the Troop circle
  • Always work as a team
  • Be responsible for your own actions
  • Attend all Scout meetings

If we have a Scout whose behaviour falls below the level of the Expectations Policy and Code of Conduct (which is rare), we use the following escalating scale of consequences:

  1. warning – a verbal warning is given during the meeting
  2. time out – the Scout stops the activity and sits quietly at the side of the hall for up to 10 minutes
  3. parents – a Leader will meet with the Scout’s parents, and may recommend that the Scout misses one or more meetings
