Preston International School means business. The social change agenda of the school means that staff and students of Preston must be well disciplined in all situations at all times. It is for this reason that the first Strategic Intent of the school (SI 1) states "To create a culture of excellent behaviour among staff and students". Therefore, codes of conduct for staff and students are explicit and detailed so that everyone knows what is expected of them and the associated rewards and consequences of their behaviour. Preston International School employs a ‘Positive Assertive Discipline’ policy to help develop a positive school ethos. In other words, we reinforce and build on the positive aspects of behaviour. The school also recognizes and rewards the efforts pupils make towards building a positive school ethos.
