It is expected that, in order for all students to continue to enjoy a positive experience at Sherwood School, all students adhere to a common code of behavioral conduct. As such, all students are expected to:
- Conduct themselves in a safe, respectful and responsible manner in school, on the grounds and on the way to and from school and to resolve interpersonal conflicts nonviolently.
- Be organized, attend regularly, be punctual, complete assigned tasks, do homework, set goals, and look after their belongings, school property, and themselves.
- Come prepared to work, bringing necessary supplies and learning materials.
- Learn as much as possible, to ask questions, to be curious, and to strive to understand.
- Complete work thoroughly, punctually and to the best of their abilities.
- Respect and adhere to classroom and learning expectations
Our student conduct expectations emphasize the development of social skills and responsible attitudes and actions. Students are instructed in appropriate conflict resolution strategies so when differences arise, students have appropriate ways to manage them. We stress that students are responsible for their actions and learning.
- Inappropriate behaviour is immediately dealt with, monitored and documented by teachers and administration.
- Parents will be notified when aggressive behaviour occurs and in cases where inappropriate behaviour recurs.
We believe that the home and the school, learning and working together to establish consistent expectations will ensure a positive learning environment for Sherwood School students.
As a representative of Sherwood School, students are expected to show co-operation, respect, and good citizenship around the neighbourhood. Here are some guidelines.
- Respect the property and personal belongings of others.
- Avoid “hanging around” stores and neighbourhood businesses; they do not permit loitering.
- If you do go to a store, be respectful of the staff and other customers. Return to the school once you have made your purchases.
