Code Of Responsible Behaviour
The discipline policy at Riverbend School is based on common sense. Stated in its simplest form, it reflects the school motto:
- Take care of yourself
- Take care of each other
- Take care of this place
Students are instructed in appropriate conflict resolution strategies so that when differences arise, students have appropriate ways to manage them. It is expected that parents/guardians work with their children to ensure appropriate behaviour within the school community. We stress that students are responsible for their actions and their behaviour.
As learning is unique to every student, so are the situations of conflict resolution. In each case, we work alongside teachers, parents and administration to determine the best course of action to promote learning.
Parents/Guardians are notified when aggressive behaviour occurs and in cases where inappropriate behaviour recurs. We believe that home and school, learning and working together to establish consistent expectations, will ensure a positive learning environment for Riverbend students.
