Goal:  to establish and maintain a safe, caring and orderly environment for

 purposeful learning. 






In a “safe” school, community members (students, teachers, parents) are expected to act in a way that will not endanger themselves or others.


For example:


Ø  stay calm

Ø  use WITS

Ø  adults need to supervise carefully

Ø  be a great role model

Ø  no bullying

Ø  respect others’ space

Ø  “friendly and fair”

Ø  report dangerous items, hurt children, unsafe play to a duty





In a “caring” school, community members (students, teachers, parents) are expected to act in ways that promote the dignity and equality of all members of the school community, support diversity and foster a sense of belonging.


For example:


Ø  make learning exciting; care about and listen to all children

Ø  be inclusive; teach how to be inclusive and make/keep friends

Ø  focus/pay attention

Ø   “friendly and fair”

Ø  “what’s on the ground stays on the ground” (snakes, frogs, snow etc.)

Ø  listen to the ideas of others

Ø  have a “busy brain”; be curious and ask questions; become an independent learner

Ø  assume leadership roles




In an “orderly” school, community members (students, teachers, parents) are expected to


Ø  conduct themselves in a way that does not interfere with the teaching/learning process, show respect for themselves, others and property.





For example:


Ø  follow student expectations

Ø  be fair and consistent

Ø  be polite and respectful

Ø  keep classrooms and personal space tidy

Ø  follow the direction of, and show respect for the authority of all members of the school staff

Ø  attend regularly, be punctual, have the necessary equipment and supplies and to give their best effort during lessons and when completing assignments


In addition:

  1. Responses to unacceptable behaviour will be applied on a consistent basis taking into consideration:

Ø  Age and maturity of student (as students become older and more mature, expectations of personal responsibility and self-discipline will increase).

Ø  Severity and frequency of unacceptable conduct as well as extenuating circumstances.

  1. Whenever possible, disciplinary action will be preventative and restorative, rather than punitive.
