Bedok View Discipline Framework

In Discipline, it is important that we aim to imbibe the right values and code of behaviour in our students and to train them to have strength in character. It is also an educative process that aims to groom Bedok Viewans into mature and responsible members of society. The process is developmental, and the goal is to develop Bedok Viewans into individuals with self-discipline. 

Bedok View Secondary School adopts the 4P Discipline Framework to guide our disciplinary processes. The ‘4Ps’ are represented by Proactive (Positive), Preventive (Pre-Emptive Measures), Pastoral (Restorative Practices & Intervention) and Partnerships (Support for Students).
