Secondary Behaviour Level System

Western Cape College are committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for our students and staff. In 2016, we have a new system of identifying and reporting levels of behaviour in the Secondary school. The system has six levels of behaviour: Level 1 Behaviours- Very Good, Level 2 Behaviours- Good, Level 3 Behaviours- Satisfactory, Level 4 Behaviours- Minor, Level 5 Behaviours- Major and Level 6 Behaviours- Extreme.

Each student is initially allocated Behaviour Level 3 (standard level). All students have the opportunity to earn their way to Levels 1 and 2 by demonstrating excellent behaviour and initiative. The application process for Level 2, opens on the 19th of February.  Applications can be collected from the administration office.

Students who fall below the accepted standard of behaviour (Level 3) will be held accountable for their behaviour and undertake the consequences for their behaviour. These students will be given a reasonable review period eg, 3 weeks in which time they will have the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to the school rules and standards.  When the student has demonstrated this commitment consistently, he/she will return to Level 3, the standard behaviour.

Please view the Secondary Behaviour Level System for indicative behaviours and possible recognition for each of the levels.
