Behaviour

Discipline

While the students have the “right” to an education, with that right goes “responsibility”. Students are responsible for their conduct at school and must ensure that they respect the rights of both students and staff. When a student’s conduct interferes with the rights of others, it is unacceptable. If the situation persists or becomes serious, parental assistance will be requested. In serious breaches of school discipline, a student may be restricted from school activities and privileges, suspended from classes or suspended from Fairview School and may only return to school in the company of their parent. Please note that according to CBE policy, when there are reasonable grounds, students and their personal belongings may be searched.

Behaviour on the Bus

Should misbehaviour on buses interfere with the driver’s concentration, students may be suspended from riding the bus and/or have to account for their actions through the school’s discipline procedures. The bus is a service, not a right, and responsible, safe behaviour is a must. Please note that that students should always have their bus pass with them on the bus; the driver may ask to see it at any time. 

Students are not to cut through the parking lot or access the playing fields or tarmac when they are coming or leaving school.

Upon arrival to school, students should quickly enter the school and prepare to start the school day.  At dismissal students are to go directly to their assigned bus.  Students standing around socializing may find that the buses will be sent on without them and they will need to call home for a ride.  Students who continually defy this rule may be suspended from riding the bus.


Displays of Affection

Students are reminded that there is an appropriate time and place for displays of affection. Around the school (inside or out), or during class is neither the place nor the time. Students are to refrain from hand holding, hugging and kissing in and around the school before, during or after school.

Harassment / Bullying

Bullying can take different forms such as physical, verbal, social, and cyber. Behaviour such as physical attacks, verbal taunts, threat/intimidation, extortion or stealing of money and possessions and exclusion from the peer group will be dealt within an appropriate manner at Fairview School. We work with students and their families to learn from and to resolve the
situation. Severe or repeated incidents will be reported to police.

If bullying and/or threats are being made outside of school (i.e. inappropriate/irresponsible use of social media, text messaging, cyber bullying, etc.), it is the parents' responsibility to report illegal behaviour to police, monitor your child’s involvement and to inform the school of any possible situations which may affect the school climate and safety of our students.

Illegal Substances & Activities

The CBE forbids students to have contact with, to have possession of, and/or to make use of alcohol, cannabis, or illegal drugs in the context of any school-related activity and considers such contact to be a major offense, which is to be dealt with firmly up to, and including expulsion and/or legal action. Any behaviour that involves a criminal activity may involve the school resource officer or police may be involved.
