Policy Statement

1st Linslade Scout Group is proud of the very high standards of Scouting that its leaders deliver in all sections. Leaders voluntarily give their time to provide an interesting and exciting programme of activities.

The aim is that everyone involved with 1st Linslade Scout Group has fun, safely and with due consideration for others.  

Disruptive behaviour affects the enjoyment of everyone and persistent disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated. We expect everyone to respect the values of Scouting, other members of their section, and their Leaders and agree to follow our Code of Conduct.

The Values of Scouting are:

Integrity:        We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy and loyal.

Respect:         We have self-respect and respect for others.

Care:               We support others and take care of the world in which we live.

Belief:             We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes.

Cooperation: We make a positive difference; we cooperate with others and make friends.

All Members of 1st Linslade Scout Group must abide by the Code of Conduct.

Code of Conduct for Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts

  • Leaders will deal with minor incidents by talking to the culprits at the time. This will be on an escalating, “three strikes and you’re out” basis, when the third sanction will be a report to the parents.
  • More serious incidents such as bullying or fighting will be reported immediately to parents, and robust action will be taken.
  • A scout may be asked to leave if they are deemed to be a risk to others or the well-being of the Group. If misbehaviour occurs at a camp, parents may be contacted to collect their scout immediately.  
  • Safety is paramount – scouts MUST listen to instructions.
  • Leaders and Adult Helpers should be shown respect at all times
  • In Scouting, a request for quiet is indicated by the Leader raising their arm or blowing a whistle. All members are expected to stop talking and pay attention to the Leader at such time.
  • “Flag break” or “Parade” is an important ritual at the start and end of each meeting. Scouts are expected to be quiet and to show respect to the Aims of Scouting, and to listen to their Leaders.
