Code of Conduct

The Bacchus Marsh Primary School community is committed to providing a safe, happy and positive learning environment, which meets the needs of all our students at all levels of their primary school life.

The Code of Conduct for students is consistent with Department of Education guidelines and regulations.

The Code of Conduct is based on the principles of:

The right to be safe
The right to work, learn and play without interference or harassment
The right to be valued and respected

The principal and staff have the responsibility to implement the Code of Conduct fairly and consistently.

Parents and guardians have the responsibility to support the school in its efforts to maintain a safe, productive teaching and learning environment.

The students have the responsibility to work, learn and play to the best of their ability and to be polite, fair and well behaved.


The staff at Bacchus Marsh Primary School are committed to providing a strong, safe and nurturing environment for all students in our school. We have a very positive and happy environment and atmosphere at Bacchus Marsh Primary School.

We believe strongly in the teaching of social skills to establish, maintain and develop constructive social relationships. We aim to teach children to manage interpersonal difficulties, to contribute collaboratively and constructively to peers, family, school and the community.

To support the development of social skills we provide a range of experiences to develop skills, solve problems, share information and experience a sense of belonging.
