Building a Culture of Caring and Respect
Take Care of Yourself
Take Care of Each Other
Take Care of This Place
At Edgemont School we are guided by the three pillars of care and we partner with parents to help students develop the inner strength and independence to do the right thing at the right time for the right reasons. We are committed to establishing and maintaining a safe, caring and effective learning environment.
Throughout our daily work at school we ask students to show caring and respect for self, others and this place. By providing students with opportunities to demonstrate citizenship and leadership, by implementing logical and consistent guidelines for behaviour and providing individuals with opportunities to make a positive contribution to our classroom communities, our school community and our larger community we empower students to make a difference every day.
We recognize that everyone makes mistakes and that these mistakes can be an opportunity for growth. When issues arise we take them up with the people involved and focus on learning from the situation, considering the impact on others and planning for a more positive future. We will also focus on helping students to develop the skills they need to solve problems independently, to recognize when they need support and to seek solutions that show respect for the dignity of all stakeholders.
