School Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct

At Elgin Court Public School, we believe that Respect, Rights and Responsibility are interconnected.  To achieve what we value most at our school, we accept and support the responsibilities that come with belonging to our school community.

  • We believe everyone should demonstrate honesty and integrity, and learn from mistakes that occur.
  • We value a safe and supportive learning environment; therefore, there is no smoking, alcohol or drugs, no throwing of snowballs or ice, and no roller blades, scooters or skateboards. 
  • We support the safe and respectful use of school equipment.
  • We will demonstrate mutual respect for all members of our school community.
  • We will not tolerate bullying or harassment.  We will keep our hands and feet off others; value the differences in others; use appropriate language, responses and manners; respect school property and resources and respect our neighbours’ property.
  • We will arrive ready to learn; attending school daily and arriving on time, having a positive attitude and being committed to performing at a high standard.
  • We value an educational program that is challenging.  We provide programs that are interesting, relevant and challenging, modified or accommodated; to meet the needs of all learners and that are designed to enrich co-curricular opportunities.
  • Students are expected to conduct themselves as good neighbours and will be accountable for their behavior while travelling to and from school, including during nutrition breaks.
  • Under no circumstance will we tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, culture, language, religion, gender, abilities, sexual orientation, or any other attributes.
  • All members of the school community must respect the need of others to work in an environment that is conducive to learning and teaching, including by ensuring that cell phones and other personal mobile devices are used only during instructional time (as directed by an educator), for health and medical purposes and/or to support special education needs.
