Every person in a community is subject to certain rights. With those rights come responsibilities. Sands is no exception to this, and encourages all it’s members to consider their rights and responsibilities. For example, everyone in the school has the right to eat school lunches, but if you choose to do so, you then have the responsibility to do your fair share of washing up once a week
Whenever a person does not take responsibility for their actions there may be repercussions for the rest of the school. It is only in this case that the school may ask if that person would make amends. Not having a tie done up correctly affects no-one; missing your washing up means the rest of the washing-up team has more to do. It is this simple approach that makes the few rules at Sands beneficial by allowing communal support to all, instead of restriction to the freedom of choice.
