- Regard attending a sporting fixture as a privilege. Be a fan, not a fanatic
- Respect all decisions made by the officials.
- Respect all other spectators, participants and school staff.
- Be good role models by positively supporting teams in every way possible, and be generous with praise.
- Praise and encourage your child’s efforts, and their school, whether they win or lose.
- Help our child to recognise good performance, not just good results.
- Become aware of the competition rules and will keep winning in its proper place.
- Recognise and respect the performances of players/athletes from all schools, not just your child’s school.
- Accept victory modestly and defeat graciously, remembering the school we are supporting will be judged by our reactions.
- Always respect and will not question the decisions of the teacher/sports coach/staff member in charge of the school team.
- Remain outside any field of play at all times, and will stand or sit in the place we have been allocated during a match or competition.
- Remember our child is part of a school squad, and may not always get a full game, or even get to compete at all in rare cases.
- Remember that nearly all those who organise and run school sports competitions volunteer their time, without receiving any financial reward. They do so willingly so that your child can participate in competitive sport. Without them, there would be no school sport. We will respect them for this.
- Use acceptable and appropriate language at all times. We will not tolerate any unacceptable behaviour from any supporter of our school, and will challenge this behaviour immediately, should it occur
