River West Park School is proud to embrace the Pembina Trails School Division Standard of Behaviour in all we do. The Standard of Behaviour is a teaching document that guides the interactions of all involved in the education process. It is a document rooted in Restorative Justice that focuses on modeling, promoting and teaching healthy behaviours that create safe and caring schools, positive citizens and a respectful society.
The document is available from the right hand column.
The Standard of Behaviour is a teaching model rather than a mandate for behaviour. The emphasis is on teaching rather than telling, nurturing rather than sanctioning and including rather than excluding.
Developed by a broad cross-section of the community, the objective of our Standard of Behaviour is to ensure to the fullest extent possible, the provision of a “safe and caring community” for all involved with the Pembina Trails School Division.
Emotional, mental and physical safety are fundamental for the provision of safe, caring and inclusive school communities, and refer to a classroom or school environment in which students can experience a sense of value, belonging, acceptance, respect and dignity for diversity of all members of learning communities, including students and staff, along with their families.
We encourage families to review the Standard of Behaviour prior to the start of the school year and to review Policy JIC.
