Promoting positive behaviour


Scouting should be an enjoyable experience and promoting positive behaviour is essential to the smooth running of any activity. This provides a foundation for the running of the section, reduces the chance of challenging behaviour occurring, and ensures that activities are fun, engaging and safe for everyone.

Adults in Scouting have an important role in supporting young people to manage their own behaviour and make positive choices. 

Scouting is an ideal place to expect positive behaviour. The Scouting Purpose and Method is based on personal development, learning by doing and enjoyment, and a key part of the Promise is being helpful to others.
