The objective of the Code of Conduct is to ensure the professional conduct of teachers and to establish and promote professional standards of teaching.

The Code applies to academic staff as well as teachers of extracurricular activities and sports coaches.

Its purpose is twofold:

01

It serves as a guideline for teachers to steer an ethical and respectful course through their career in teaching and to uphold the honour and dignity of the teaching profession.

02

It may be used by the wider community of parents and students to inform their understanding and expectations of the teaching profession at the Colombo School of Arts and Sciences.

Professional misconduct by a teacher may be defined as engaging in any improper conduct in his or her professional capacity or otherwise by reason of which he or she is unfit to teach. In respect of each individual complaint against a teacher, the school will consider whether the conduct complained of amounts to a serious falling short on the part of the teacher, of the standards of teaching, knowledge, skill, competence and conduct that could reasonably be expected.
