Code of Conduct

As a leader, I promise to …

  • Organise a range of fun and interesting activities
  • Treat everyone fairly

As a scout, I promise to …

  • Have fun, try new things and learn new skills
  • Show pride in being a member of the 51st Pentland Scouts
  • Come dressed smartly and in full uniform (shirt, necker and woggle)
  • Make sure my badges are sewn on
  • Wear appropriate clothing for outdoor activities
  • Attend regularly and be punctual
  • Treat other people how I would like to be treated myself
  • Not deliberately put myself or others in danger
  • Respect other people’s opinions
  • Respect other people’s possessions
  • Look after the scout and church equipment and property
  • Listen quietly to instructions
  • Follow the rules of games and activities
  • Take an active part in games and activities
  • Not be disruptive
  • Keep my mobile phone turned off and put away. If I need to make an emergency call / text I will ask one of the leaders.


Any infringement of the code of conduct can result in a YELLOW card. This is a warning that their behaviour is unacceptable. If the individual’s behaviour continues to give concern then a RED card can be issued. This will result in the scout concerned missing the next week of scouts. They will also have to explain to their parents why they have received this. Any further infingements could result in the scout being asked to leave the group.
