CODE OF CONDUCT
Please read the "code of conduct" so you are aware of our school policies.
A code of conduct warning will not be taken lightly.
2023 Player Code of Behaviour
As a player representing Marsden School you are required to comply with this policy. You must meet the following requirements in regard to your conduct and in any role you hold within the School.
2023 Parent Code of Behaviour
As a parent or caregiver of a Marsden student, we ask that you comply with this fair play code.
The Principal and/or the Director of Sport & Active Recreation are responsible for ensuring that the Code of Behaviour is met at all times. If a player or parent breaks this code of behaviour then consequences (which may include withdrawal from the team or a ‘stand‐down’ period) may be imposed.
We thank parents, caregivers and supporters for the positive encouragement and assistance they provide to Marsden teams and thank you for the good reputation you have helped us establish in the Wellington sporting community.
FORMAL QUERY PROCESS
If a parent has a question about his/her daughter’s role on the team, the following guidelines are recommended:
Please be mindful that:
It is not appropriate to approach the coach immediately after a game or practice and demand a meeting. The coach has a primary responsibility to his/her team at that time.
The coach will have the final say on the playing time of the players on the team but, they must be fair.
The coach is present for all practices and games. He/she supervises the players throughout the season. The coach knows that player’s attitude, attendance and other intangibles may be more important than talent to the success of the team. It is important that you are aware of all the factors that influence a coach’s decision before rushing to a judgment about your situation on the team.
