Our Behaviour Management process at MCC is about coming alongside a child, helping them understand how to make good choices, and teaching them that their choices, both good and bad, bring related consequences.
Proverbs 22:6 says, ‘Train a child to follow the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.’ We aim to support parents in their role as the main responsible care-giver and trainer of a child. MCC believes in establishing age-appropriate boundaries for students, and applying consistent consequences so that students learn which choices are good and right, and which choices may cause harm to them and others. We focus upon rewarding and encouraging students who demonstrate acceptable attitudes and behaviours that show care and consideration for both themselves and others, and give correction and consequences for unacceptable behaviours. These are the two facets of behaviour management – to model and support appropriate behaviours and discourage and correct inappropriate behaviours.
