The general behaviour of our young people is a matter of great importance in the smooth and safe running of our Group, in section meetings and outside activities.
Our aim is to encourage positive behaviour and to help the young people to develop self-control. Consideration, tolerance, kindness and fair dealing are constantly encouraged whilst courtesy and thought for one another are regarded as the basis of relationships between the young people, Leaders and other adults connected with the Group.
The Scout Association has recently highlighted the problem of bullying and suggested that scouting has the opportunity to create an environment in which bullying is not acceptable. It is hoped that our code of conduct will go towards reducing the chances of bullying going undetected within our Group.
Discipline and good behaviour need a team effort and at 1st Dartford Scout Group it is expected that parents will support Leaders in their attempts to provide a good environment of caring and trust.
Thus we have developed a code of conduct for all members of the Scout Group.
