​​​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.​​​​

Code of Conduct

Working Together at Bishop Pinkham School

Bishop Pinkham School strives to be a community in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect. Home and school share the responsibility for appropriate social behaviour. By working together we can encourage positive student conduct.


Harassment is defined as any persistent behavior that humiliates or harms another person. At Bishop Pinkham, we support students in learning appropriate ways to communicate and interact. Our expectation is that students will adhere to the CBE Student Code of Conduct at all times.

Disrespectful Language

We strive to maintain a culture of respect for all. Students have the right to be treated respectfully and have a responsibility to treat others with respect. Disrespectful language is regarded as unacceptable on school property. If students engage in disrespectful language, teachers will contact home and administration may become involved as a part of the CBE Progressive Discipline Regulation.

To address the problems of harassment and bullying, staff and students are taught how to identify inappropriate behaviours and how to respond to these behaviours. Victims or witnesses of harassment or bullying should seek out the assistance of school personnel to mediate the conflict.

If parents know or suspect that their child is being harassed or bullied, they should talk to their child's teacher or an administrator.

School administrators and teachers will work together to maintain a safe and secure environment for all students. The school appreciates the support of parents when dealing with behaviour unbecoming of a Bishop Pinkham Citizen. When responding to unacceptable student behaviour, a teacher or principal might consider several consequences including, but not limited to:

  • detention
  • alternate supervised location
  • short term removal of privileges, or
  • community service.
