Create a Code of Conduct


Pens and Paper
Copy of the Section Promise


How can we help the leaders and other section members to enjoy the meetings?

We're going to make a list of rules just for us on how we will behave when we are at Patrol meetings, so that these sessions are fun and enjoyable for everyone.

Emphasis that this is their rules.

In Groups 'Brain storm' what rules they want in place - write down all ideas.
If they are struggling - ask them what behaviour is acceptable or what behaviour is not acceptable - however, turn the later into a positive statement/rule i.e. no name calling could be, Be kind etc.
Operate a control system to allow all to air their views. e.g. circle and only person sat on a chair in the middle can put forward a suggestion or a talking stick / Knecker or other suitable item.

What would be the consequences for breaking the code of conduct? i.e. miss a game, thought time or for more serious would be miss scouts?

Try and get a consensus on the points.

Ask a Cub Scout to say the Cub Scout promise to see if the rules fit into the promise they made as Cubs Scouts.

The Cub Scout Promise:

I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people
And to keep the Cub Scout Law.

The Cub Scout Law:

Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.

The Cub Scout Motto:

Be Prepared
