​​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

The expectations for student conduct and the approach to discipline at Janet Johnstone School, described below, have been developed to be consistent with the above regulations.

The purpose of our expectation policy is to develop a common understanding among school staff, parents/guardians and students. The intent of any action taken is to help students learn from their mistakes. An atmosphere of cooperation, collaboration and understanding between all parties is the most productive way of making this learning effective. A consistent approach to behaviour by school staff, students, and parents/guardians has resulted in students knowing, and following expectations at Janet Johnstone School.

Everyone Does Their Part

The teacher establishes clear expectations, models appropriate behaviour and attitudes, reinforces correct behavior, and is alert to the student who needs assistance. 

The student is aware, understands and follows expectations to help maintain safe and appropriate learning environment. Students model appropriate behavior for others in the school. 

The parent/guardian supports, cooperates, provides input and models behaviour and an attitude conducive to their child’s learning. 

School Expectations & Rules

  • Treat others with kindness and respect
  • Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself
  • Use courteous language
  • Walk in the halls
  • Follow directions when asked

With adult guidance, children take responsibility for their learning and assume responsibility for their actions. Our goal is that each child grows in self-monitoring his/her own behaviours. To accomplish this goal we have adopted the Raise Responsibility System described as follows:
