Our expectations are simple:
"Teachers should be allowed to teach and students should be allowed to learn"
Behaviour should fall within this simple statement. Any behaviour that prevents this cannot be tolerated.
In addition, the following is agreed:
In our school we care…
for each other…
• we are supportive
• we are respectful and polite in our words and our actions
• we listen to others
for our learning…
• we are responsible for our own learning
• we are on time and prepared
• we stick to deadlines
for our environment…
• we keep our surroundings clean and tidy
In any institution there are, of course more specific rules and regulations, adapted each each and made relevant to the year levels.
These are renewed at the start of every school year and can be accessed below:
The staff and leadership at the international school Groningen will endeavour to minimise complaints. If you do, however, have a complaint, you can expect the school to deal with it swiftly and professionally. The procedure can be downloaded below.

The school also offers a 'trust person' which any student or any member of staff can speak to in confidence regarding any unacceptable behaviour of any member of the school community. The contact details can be obtained from the secretary of the international school or the Maartenscollege.
