Behaviour Guidelines for codingEdge Technology Holiday Workshops

  1. codingEdge Technology fosters a fully inclusive, harmonious learning environment.

  2. All workshop participants have the right to participate in a safe environment, where they can develop positive relationships with peers and staff, free of bullying, inappropriate comments or unwanted physical contact.

  3. All participants must follow safety guidelines and instructions given by any member of the codingEdge Technology staff. The health, safety and well-being of all participants and staff is paramount. Participants are encouraged to speak with a codingEdge Technology staff member if they feel unsafe in the environment.

  4. Participants must care for and respect the equipment provided as part of the program. Although a piece of equipment may look like a toy, the robots especially, are expensive technology tools, with sensitive components that can easily be damaged if misused. They will remain in good working order for everyone to enjoy if they are treated with respect and used only for the purpose for which they were designed. codingEdge Technology reserves the right to pursue costs to repair or replace equipment damaged through intentional mishandling, rather than being accidentally damaged.

  5. These guidelines are designed to provide everyone with a happy and enjoyable learning experience.

Actions for behaviour management

  1. Throughout the codingEdge Technology workshops there is an emphasis on positive reinforcement, interactions and experiences.

  2. Failure of any participant to uphold the behaviour guidelines may result in the following:

    1. codingEdge Technology staff will remind the student about appropriate behaviour and expectations

    2. if inappropriate behaviour persists, the participant will be temporarily removed from the activity to break the cycle of inappropriate behaviour, allow time to refocus and commit to rejoining the activity in an appropriate manner

    3. if the behaviour is extreme and codingEdge Technology staff deem the safety of other participants or staff to be compromised, a parent / guardian of the child will be contacted by telephone and codingEdge Technology staff may ask the parents to remove the child from the workshop.

  3. codingEdge Technology reserves the right to refuse or terminate enrolment if there is a breach of the Workshop Behaviour Guidelines. Any costs incurred as a result of any intentionally damaged property will be charged to the parent/guardian.

  4. No refund of the program fee will be provided if participants are removed for behavioural reasons.
