F.R. Haythorne Junior High Student Conduct

Philosophy

All students have the right to learn in a positive environment.  A positive learning environment is one in which students are encouraged to make appropriate choices and are responsible for their own behaviour.  There are logical and natural consequences for the choices a student makes.  Our goal is to work with parents and students in correcting poor choices and encouraging students to make positive ones where the needs of each student are respected.

Roles and Responsibilities

Roles of the Student

Students have a responsibility to respect the rights and dignity of others and to become actively and productively involved in their own learning and social growth.  To achieve these goals, students are expected to;

  • Know, understand, and follow school rules.
  • Accept responsibility for their actions at school or on school-sponsored events.
  • Put forth appropriate efforts in their studies to the best of their ability.
  • Attend school regularly, punctually, and be prepared for each class.
  • Cooperate fully and respectfully with all adults.
  • Respect the rights and dignity of others.


Roles of the Staff

Staff is responsible for establishing a positive school climate in which structure, support, and encouragement are provided to assist the student both in understanding the importance of education and in developing positive character virtues.  This is a climate in which staff work with students so that;

  • Students feel safe, important and trusted and have the opportunity to develop, assume and maintain responsibility and self-motivation
  • There is a feeling of mutual respect among staff, students, and parents
  • Students are provided encouragement and positive support for appropriate behaviour
  • Ongoing communication exists between school and parents/guardians to involve all stakeholders in the education of students
