Student Code of Conduct
The school believes that a positive school tone is critical to student learning and character development. CCKSians must learn the rationale for and the importance of school rules in creating a positive and conducive learning environment for all. School rules state the school’s expectations of student behaviour, which form the basis of character development and development of Passionate Learners & Compassionate Leaders.
Attendance and Punctuality
Attendance and Punctuality
- CCKSians attend school every school day.
- If a student is absent with a valid reason, they will present to their Form Teacher a medical certificate or a parent’s letter (for a non-medical reason) on the following school day. A maximum of 4 parent’s letter is allowed per student per year.
- CCKSians arrive punctually for the flag-raising ceremony at the beginning of each school day, for their lessons and for all school events. If they are late, they will apologise for their lateness to the Teacher- in-charge and explain their reason. CCKSians show due respect to the symbols of our nation: Our President, State Flag, National Anthem and The Pledge. CCKSians who are Singapore citizens must sing the National Anthem and recite the Pledge with the right fist placed over the heart. Non-Singaporeans will stand at attention during the ceremony.
- CCKSians do not leave the class, school or school event without seeking permission from the Teacher- in-charge. If they feel unwell during the school day and seek to leave school early, they report to the General Office and the Office will contact their parents to fetch them home. If they wish to leave school during school hours for a valid reason, they must first obtain permission from a HOD, Vice-Principal or Principal. An Early Departure Form needs to be completed and submitted to the General Office.
- CCKSians wear the prescribed school uniform and modification to the uniform is not allowed. The uniform is worn smartly both inside and outside of school. CCKSians are mindful that they represent the school and uphold the school’s image. A female student’s skirt should touch the knees. A male student’s long pants should be of appropriate length and tapering of the school pants is not allowed. The PE attire consists of the House/ school polo T-shirt, school shorts, white socks and shoes. Every student should have at least two sets of PE attire. Female Muslim students may wear plain black track pant. A letter of request written by the parent/guardian must be submitted to HOD/PE. Student should change into their full school uniforms during recess. They should not remain in the PE attire after 1130 am.
- CCKSians do not wear jewellery or fashion accessories with the school uniform, though a female student may wear a pair of small silver/gold ear-studs.

Care for the Environment
- CCKSians keep their environment neat and clean, whether the place is their classroom, special rooms, IT rooms, CCA rooms or other parts of the school compound. They do not litter. They ensure lights, fans and air-conditioners are switched off if they are the last to leave the room.
Security and Safety

Possession of any weapon or weapon-like item
- All students are not allowed to have in their possession any weapon. They are also not allowed to bring any weapon-like item which is used or intended to be used to cause harm to others..
Use of mobile phones and other communication/electronic devices
- Students learn well when there is order, discipline and minimal distraction. It is important that all CCKSians learn to be responsible and discerning users of technology. We would strongly advise parents, if they wish their children to bring a mobile phone to school, to purchase for your child only a simple mobile phone for communication purposes. This is to minimize distraction and replacement costs in the case of loss or damage. In addition to the CCE and Cyber Wellness curriculum, our school has in place the following rules and policies to ensure responsible use of mobile devices in school.
- Mobile phones/electronic devices can only be used at these specified three timings of the day: before morning assembly, during recess and lunch time and after-school hours.
- Students are strongly discouraged from using their mobile phones along the corridor in view of their safety.
- Students found using their mobile phone without permission, will have their mobile phone taken away. It will be returned on the same day by the subject teacher. For repeated offences, mobile phones will be handed over to the Level Coordinator or a member of the Student Management team. The staff confiscating the mobile phone will ensure that the student informs his or her parents that their mobile phone is not with them.
Parents to avoid contacting your child via their mobile phone during school hours to minimise disruption to lessons. Should parents need to contact their child, or in the case of an emergency, they may call the school office. For non-emergency cases, they should SMS their child and leave a message for him to return a call as soon as he reads the message after school dismissal.
