Ráiteas Misin / Mission Statement 

I gColáiste Naomh Feichín déantar gach dícheall timpeallacht shlán shábháilte a chruthú ina ndéantar oideachas a sholáthar ag díriú ar fhorbairt acadúil, sóisialta agus cultúrtha na scoláirí. Tabharfar aitheantas do thréithiúlacht ar leith na scoláirí agus déanfar iad a oiliúint le bheith ina saoránaigh measúla, réasúnachta, fiúntacha. 

Coláiste Naomh Feichín endeavours to create a safe, secure environment for staff and students in which education in a holistic sense will be provided, focusing on the students’ academic, social and cultural development. The students’ uniqueness and individuality will be recognised and nurtured so that they become respectful, balanced and valuable members of society.

 


 

Tá an Cód Iompair seo i bhfeidhm chun go gcuirfear Coláiste slán sábháilte ar fáil a dhéanfaidh freastal ar fhorbairt oideachasúil mhóralta shóisialta na scoláirí. Cuirfear an bhéim ar iompar maith a chothú in ionad a bheith ag gearradh pionóis ar dhroch-iompar. Ar an dtuiscint go gcuireann gaol maith idir scoil agus tuismitheoir go mór le h-éifeacht scoile, is é an polasaí atá againn ná teagmháil rialta a bheith ag an gColáiste le baile maidir le h-iompar agus dul chun cinn an scoláire. Tá deá-chaidreamh idir mhúinteoirí agus scoláirí fíor-thábhachtach agus tionchar mhór aige ar iompar scoláirí. Do chuid mhór scoláirí, is ábhar ollmhór tacaíochta dóibh a gcuid múinteoirí.

This Code of Behaviour is designed to create a safe secure environment in our Coláiste which will facilitate the educational, moral and social development of our pupils - to promote and encourage good behaviour rather than simply to punish bad behaviour. In the belief that the most effective schools tend to be those with the best relationships with parents, our policy is to promote continuous contact between parents and Coláiste in relation to each student’s behaviour and progress. The quality of relationships between teachers and students is one of the most powerful influences on student behaviour. For many students, their teachers are a major source of support.

 

Cothú Deá-Iompair / Promoting Good Behaviour

The following behaviour is expected:

  1. Go mbeidh scoláirí dea-mhúinte cuirtéiseach agus go mbeidh meas acu ar na múinteoirí, foireann eile an Choláiste, cuairteoirí, tiománaíthe bus, meas acu ar a chéile agus ar gach éinne ón bpobal a mbíonn teagmháil acu leo

  3. Go ndéanfaidh scoláirí a ndícheall ina gcuid obair ranga agus lena gcuid obair bhaile agus go mbeidh siad ag comhoibriú lena gcuid múinteoirí.
    That students do their best in class and with their homework and that they co-operate with their teachers.

  4. Go mbeidh meas ag scoláirí ar chuile scoláire eile agus ar a gcuid fóghlama
    That students respect other students and their learning.


  5. Comhoibriú ó na scoláirí chun ár gColáíste agus clós an Choláiste a choinneáil slachtmhar agus saor ó bhruscar agus freisin taobhanna an bhóthair idir an Colaiste agus an siopa.
    That students co-operate in keeping our Coláiste and Coláiste grounds clean and tidy and also the roadsides between the Coláiste and the local shop.

Smachtbhannaí
Sanctions

 

Úsáidfear smachtbhanna ar bhealach ómósach a chuidíonn le scoláirí a n-iompar a thuiscint agus freagracht a ghlacadh chun an t-iompar sin a athrú. Ní mór don smachtbhanna, go h-áirithe:

  • an teannas a bhaint ón scéal, gan é a fhormhéadú

  • dínit na bpáirtithe uilig a chaomhnú

Céim 1: An Múinteoir sa Seomra Ranga

Tá an múinteoir, le tacaíocht na dtuismitheoirí agus bainistíocht an Choláiste, freagrach as cúrsaí smachta ina seomra ranga féin. D’fhéadfadh an múinteoir úsáid a bhaint as na smachtbhannaí seo:

    Correct and give advice to the student

    Following three documented incidents of unacceptable behaviour, a Cárta Bán (Notification Card) is sent home, to be signed by a parent and returned to class teacher. The Principal must be informed before Card is sent home.

  • Má leantar leis an mí-iompar cuirfear an scoláire i nGéibheann
    If the unacceptable conduct continues, the student will be put on Detention.

  • Iarr ar an bPríomhoide nó Príomhoide Tánaisteach comhairle a chuir ar scoláire (is féidir é seo a dhéanamh ag am ar bith).
    Ask the Principal or Deputy Principal to advise the student (this can be done at any time).

  • Má chloistear nó má fheictear fón póca/uirlís leictreonach ag scoláire sa gColáiste nó sa timpeallacht, tógfaidh múinteoir suas é. Tabharfar don Phríomhoide é agus ní tabharfar ar ais é go dtagann tuismitheoir ar a thóir. Caithfear fón póca, &rl. a thabhairt suas láithreach má iarrtar é.
    If seen or heard in the Coláiste or surrounding area, the mobile phone/electronic device will be confiscated by a teacher. It will be given to the Principal and will not be returned until collected by a parent. Mobile phones, etc. must be handed up immediately on request.

Tabharfaidh gach múinteoir cuntas ar obair ranga, iompar ranga agus obair bhaile an scoláire i ngach rang le linn an tréimhse. Pléfidh an Príomhoide agus an Príomhoide Tánaisteach dul chun cinn an scoláire leis/lei, agus leis na tuismitheoirí, ag deireadh na seachtaine. Muna bhfuil feabhas sásúil, tabharfar Cárta Tuairisce dó/di ar feadh seachtaine(í) eile.
A student, who continues to misbehave, will be put on report during which time each teacher will report on the student’s class work, classroom behaviour and compliance with homework for each class period.

Fionraí
Suspension

Is smachtbhanna tromchúiseach é scoláire a chur ar Fionraí / Suspension of a student is a severe sanction. Faoi Acht 31 den Acht Gairmoideachais (Leasú) 2001, tá an t-údarás scoláire a chuir ar fionraí tarmligthe ag an mBord Oideachais agus Oiliúna leis an Bord Bainistíochta, agus tugtha ag an mBord don Phríomhoide. Sa gcás go mbíonn an Priomhoide as láthair, tá údarás ag an Príomhoide Tánaisteach gníomhú ar a son.
The authority to suspend a student has been devolved under Section 31 of the Vocational Education (Amendment) Act 2001 by the Education & Training Board to the Board of Management, who have delegated the authority to the Principal. In the absence of the Principal, the Deputy Principal is authorised to suspend a student.

D’fhéadfaí an smachtbhanna seo a úsáid:
This sanction may be imposed:

  • Nuair a theip ar iarrachtaí eile an fhadhb/na fadhbanna a réiteach.
    When other attempts to resolve the issue(s) have failed.

  • I gcás sárú tromchúiseach ar an gCód Iompair.
    In the case of a serious breach of the Code of Behaviour.

  • Cuirfear tuismitheoir(í) ar an eolas faoi scoláire go bhfuil fionraí le gearradh air/uirthi, agus an chúis atá leis.
    Parent(s) will be notified when a suspension is being imposed on a student, and the reason for same.

 

Achomharc a dhéanamh
Making an Appeal

Tá cead ag tuismitheoirí, nó scoláire atá ós cionn ocht mbliana déag d’aois, achomharc a dhéanamh chuig Bord Oideachais agus Oiliúna na Gaillimhe agus Ros Comáin sa chás go mbíonn scoláire curtha ar fionraí le haghaidh fiche lá sa scoilbhliain de réir Mír 29 den Acht Oideachais 1998.
Parents, or a student aged over eighteen years, as provided in Section 29 of the Education Act 1998, may make an appeal to Galway Roscommon Education & Training Board (GRETB) where a student has been suspended for twenty days in a school year.

 

Scoláire a dhíbirt ón scoil
Expulsion

Is smachtbhanna fíor-thromchúiseach é scoláire a dhíbirt ón scoil. Is ag Bord Bainistíochta na scoile atá an t-údarás scoláire a dhíbirt. Ba chóir don Choláiste bheith tar éis bearta suntasacha a chur i bhfeidhm le dul i ngleic leis an mí-iompar chun díbirt scoláire a sheachaint. Is féidir go mbeadh cúinsí eisceachtúla ann ina mbíonn an Bord Bainistíochta den tuairim go gcaithfear an scoláire a dhíbirt don chéad chion tromchúiseach.
Expulsion of a student is a very serious step and should only be taken by the Board of Management in extreme cases of unacceptable behaviour. Expulsion will normally be considered after significant steps by the Coláiste to address the misbehaviour. In exceptional circumstances, the Board of Management may expel a student following a first serious offence.
