Code of Conduct

Keeping Our School Safe, Healthy, Happy and a Productive Place to Learn

AT ROBERTS ANNEX WE TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER.

Parents are their children’s first teacher and the strongest role models for positive and appropriate behaviour. The purpose of this code of behaviour is to establish and maintain a safe and caring environment with clear expectations and responsibilities.

We Learn to be Safe, Helpful and Polite…Caring and Sharing…Respectful and Responsible

Inside Report to the office if you are late Line up quietly for your lunch Use “inside” voices, remembering that others are trying to learn Give others the gift of quiet so they may work

Unacceptable Behaviour 

Unacceptable Behaviour includes bullying, aggressive play (including pushing, hitting, kicking…), disruptive behaviour that interferes with our learning community, offensive or demeaning language, excluding others, damaging school property and any racist, sexist or homophobic behaviour. 

Consequences for Misbehaviour

The principal, vice-principal, teachers and support staff of Roberts Annex Elementary School have agreed upon the following process to address student misbehaviour.

STEP 1
Staff person will speak directly to the child. A short time out may be required.

STEP 2
The staff person may arrange for the student to have a time out at recess or lunch after filling out a problem solving sheet.

STEP 3
The child is asked to go speak to the vice-principal. School may call the parent. Suitable consequence may be applied. 

Very serious or repetitive misbehaviour will be recorded and parents and officials or other agencies such as the District may need to be contacted.

The school will take all reasonable steps to prevent retaliation against a student who has made a complaint of a breach of a code of conduct. 

The severity and frequency of unacceptable behaviour, as well as, the age and maturity are considered when determining appropriate consequences.

Rising Expectations

As students become older, they are expected to be role models, taking increased responsibility for their behaviour. 

Roberts Annex 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, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex or sexual orientation – in the school environment.
