Code of Conduct

Sir Guy Carleton Elementary

 

 

COMPREHENSIVE CODE OF CONDUCT

 

Statement of Purpose

 

Carleton’s Code of Conduct is designed to promote cooperation among children and encourage respect for others, their belongings, the buildings and community.  Its purpose is also to ensure a safe and orderly environment in which students are able to learn and teachers are able to facilitate that learning without interference.

 

Carleton School promotes the values expressed in the BC Human Rights Code respecting the rights of all individuals in accordance with the law – prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex or sexual orientation.

 

 

 

Rising Expectations

 

It is expected that as children mature and move through the grades they will:

          be given more responsibility for demonstrating acceptable  behaviour and self-discipline; consequences for not following the code of conduct will be appropriate for the age and maturity of student

          act as appropriate role models

          be given additional opportunities in the areas of student leadership and providing service to the school
