A code of conduct governs not only the behaviour of an organisation, but it also shapes the attitude and guides the behaviour of different groups of individuals.

The purpose of such codes of conducts are:

  • to create a sense of oneness among groups of people despite their individual differences.
  • to create a common vision for ethical behaviour
  • to help guide people in their interactions and to offer a standard for people to follow.

Codes of conduct may be adopted from the examples below but are most powerful where the people they concern are included in the creation. Oxfordshire Sport and Physical Activity believes that young people should be involved where ever possible in shaping the activites they are involved in and so here you will also find examples of codes of conduct created by young people for the Oxfordshire Sainsbury's School Games.
