In addition to the other guidelines for our students and school community throughout our website, please be aware of these principles.​​

Our CBE Student Code of Conduct and CBE Progressive Student Discipline regulation apply to all of our students. They outline the roles and expectations for our students to promote positive and inclusive learning environments, help students to develop empathy and become good citizens both within and outside of the school community, and explain the consequences when a student’s disruptive behaviour negatively affects the learning environment.

Our CBE Employee Code of Conduct applies to all of our employees. The CBE maintains high standards for the conduct of its employees, and expects them to conduct themselves honestly and with integrity and exercise common sense, good judgement and discretion.​​​​

Our Goal is for Every Child to be Self-Disciplined 

  • The self-disciplined child:
  • knows what is acceptable behaviour.
  • accepts the consequences for his/her behaviour and attitude.
  • can examine his/her behaviour and come up with acceptable alternatives.
  • For self-discipline to be nurtured, a climate of warmth, support, mutual trust and respect is necessary.

We Believe Students Should

  • Show courtesy and respect in their dealings with each other and all with whom they come in contact.
  • Show respect for public and private property.
  • Show respect for the rights, opinions and beliefs of others.

If Unacceptable Behaviour Occurs 

  • A child showing unacceptable behaviour will be dealt with initially by the staff member observing or closest to the behaviour. Consequences for such behaviour may include the loss of privileges within the classroom or school, a brief "cooling-off" time in a more removed setting, or a phone call home.
  • Unacceptable behaviour at recess or lunch time may lead to the loss of recess(es) for a specified period.
  • Continued unacceptable behaviour may be dealt with by a member of the administrative team. Similar, but more extended consequences may be used. Parents may also be required to meet with a member of the administra-tive team to achieve a resolution of the problem.
  • Communication with parents about these incidents will be through a ‘Character Check’, a note in the agenda, and/or a phone call home.

Character Check

This tool will be used by teachers, support staff, and administrators as a teaching tool to support our students’ learning.
