​​​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.​​​​

  • Accept responsibility for one’s own actions and their subsequent consequences.
  • Respect self, others and the property of self and others.

Parent Role:

  • Encourage a supportive home environment that promotes positive attitudes toward learning.

Problem Solving:

We realize that an individual child’s response to the above expectations will vary.  Some children will require additional assistance to meet their responsibilities as citizens of Elbow Park School.  Part of growing up is making mistakes.  Our goal is for students to learn from their mistakes and be empowered to meet future challenges.
