Scouts held a Troop Forum to talk about Scout Values, see how many Scout Laws they were able to recall and together to come up with their Code of Conduct by consensus.

Earlier Akela had introduced the scouts to a mnemonic to help remember their scout law: Ten Little Fat Fingers Caught The Rat.

  • T – Trustworthy – A Scout is to be trusted.
  • L – Loyal – A Scout is loyal.
  • F – Friendly – A Scout is friendly and considerate.
  • F – Family – A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.
  • C – Courage – A Scout has courage in all difficulties.
  • T – Time – A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.
  • R – Respect – A Scout has self-respect and respect for others.

With this in hand and with each scout having made their promise to uphold our Scout Values and keep the Scout Law they set about working to formulate the following Code of Conduct nominating a scribe and taking it in turns to come up with rules in their own words:

  • Be respectful of other people’s boundaries.
  • Don’t talk over people.
  • Scouts and Leaders should behave appropriately.
  • Listen to others’ ideas / we should be able to discuss important matters.
  • Every half term have a group meeting to discuss important matters.
  • Treat others how you want to be treated.
  • Respect others’ appearances, cultures, identities, life choices.
  • No inappropriate jokes / be appropriate
  • Be mindful.
  • Stop means stop.
  • No means no.
