Guidelines for Behaviour

Pupils are expected to behave in the Library Resource Centre. It is not the playground and there are pupils and staff trying to work there at all times. A code of behaviour has been drawn up and each year, pupils are expected to sign the Guidelines. These are as follows:

Silence is golden
No food or drink
Look after the books
Don't lend books to other pupils
Return books by the due date

S6 pupils have their own guidelines for behaviour during free periods. They have to sign the following:

1. The Library is a place for quiet study, for looking for information and for using the PC's. Quiet should be maintained.
2. Pupils should never be in the Library during timetabled class periods.
3. Books and PC's are expensive to buy and should be treated with respect. They can easily be damaged by spillages of food or drink so food and drink should not be brought into the Library.
4. Mobile phones disturb the peace so they should not be switched on in the Library.
5. The use of the internet is permitted only to check UCAS e-mail. Otherwise, a letter is needed from the relevant subject teacher.
6. Please ask the Librarian for help with finding information.
