​​​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

Student Responsibilities

  • To conduct themselves in a safe, respectful and responsible manner in school, on the grounds and on the way to and from school and to resolve conflicts non-violently.
  • To be organized, attend regularly, be punctual, complete assigned tasks, do homework, set goals, and look after their belongings, school property, and themselves. Students need to come prepared to work to the best of their ability, bringing necessary supplies and learning materials.
  • To learn as much as possible, to ask questions, to be curious, and to strive to understand.

Discipline Policy

The discipline policy at Banting & Best School is based on the principle of respect.

Stated in its simplest form, it is:

  • Respect yourself
  • Respect each other
  • Respect the things and places around you
  • Respect the world (the environment)

Our student conduct expectations emphasize the development of social skills and responsible attitudes and actions. Students are instructed in appropriate conflict resolution strategies so when disagreements arise, students have appropriate ways to manage them. It is assumed, of course, that parents are always working with their children to ensure proper behaviour. 

We stress that students are responsible for their actions and learning. Inappropriate behaviour is immediately dealt with, monitored and documented by teachers and administration. Parents are notified when aggressive behaviour occurs and in cases where inappropriate behaviour recurs.

We believe that the home and the school, learning and working together to establish consistent expectations will ensure a positive learning environment for Banting & Best School students.
