Code of Conduct

In order to establish effective professional learning relationships, expectations for standards of behaviour must be agreed upon. These are outlined in our Code of Conduct, and are designed to provide quality assurances to all parties. Some of these standards are required by the Australian Tutoring Association. Some are specific to Cultivating Crossroads. All students, teachers and other parties are required to adhere to these standards. Comfortable, quality teaching and learning environments are thereby assured for all involved.


  • Be respectful of scheduled timing by being seated and ready to learn at the allocated time, in a suitably quiet environment.

  • Be organised, with all required materials within easy access before the lesson and have toileting completed.

  • Be respectful of your teacher by engaging with your lesson, listening and using a respectful tone of voice.
