We look for opportunities to recognize and celebrate students who are following our code of conduct, and showing leadership through their respectful behaviour.
Consequences are intended to guide children to make better choices for their behaviour and to understand how their actions affect other members of our learning community. Consequences are most effective when they are applied consistently and when they are directly related to the behaviour of the student. Consequences are applied based on our knowledge of each individual child’s strengths and abilities. Consequences always respect the dignity of each child.
When children are not able to follow our code of conduct any or all of the following consequences may be applied at the discretion of school staff and in consideration of the severity of the incident.
