Behaviour

At Braeburn International School Arusha we:

  • Foster a caring and supportive environment that recognises and addresses the unique needs of students and staff.
  • Focus on delivering a top-quality education that maximises academic, physical, and artistic potential, ultimately preparing students for successful futures.
  • Promote positive and respectful relationships among students, parents, staff, and the broader community.
  • Emphasise the development of international and cross-cultural knowledge, interest, awareness, and understanding, fostering a global perspective among its students.

All children have the right to learn in a safe and supportive environment, with a clear and acceptable view of what is right and wrong; appreciating the needs of others and the society around them. They have the right to achieve their full potential, free from discrimination on the grounds of gender, race, religion, culture or disability.

We have high expectations for behaviour and performance and aim to provide a stimulating and challenging environment that celebrates the diversity of our community, promotes respect for the individual and fosters caring attitudes.

Our aims:

At Braeburn International School Arusha we aim to create an environment in which positive behaviour is encouraged and misbehaviour is challenged through restorative practices, a whole-school learning and teaching approach that encourages behaviour that is supportive and respectful. This is done by addressing conflicts and harmful behaviour in a way that promotes healing, personal growth, and community cohesion.

● Students need to gain insight into the consequences of their actions and the need to take an active role in repairing the harm they have incurred.
● Both parties gain insight into each other's experience and find ways to ensure that the damage is repaired.
● Together they develop and enhance their intrinsic social responsibility.
