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.
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 behavior unbecoming of a Bishop Pinkham Citizen. When responding to unacceptable student behaviour, a teacher or principal might consider a number of consequences including, but not limited to: a) detention b) alternate supervised location c) short term removal of privileges or d) community service.
