We have a safe and respectful school

Safe and respectful environments

Safe and respectful school, we:

  • have a whole school approach to student safety and wellbeing
  • develop and promote bullying prevention policies and programs
  • have a leadership team that understands duty of care requirements
  • have staff that model pro-social behavior and intervene when they see bullying or anti-social behavior
  • value the expertise of student wellbeing staff
  • have clearly defined roles for responding to bullying
  • ensure all staff have access to regular professional learning
  • address bullying incidents swiftly and consistently.

Bullying prevention policy

We have a specific policy that addresses student engagement, and more specifically bullying prevention. See: Bullying Prevention Policy

Responding and intervention

Responding and intervention methods are clearly understood and consistently applied by all staff and are modified depending on type, severity and extent of the bullying behavior. The whole school community is aware of these methods.

Monitoring and evaluation

Monitoring and evaluation of school policies and approaches are conducted on a regular basis, supported by detailed record-keeping and information gathering about the effectiveness of school approaches to address bullying and enable reflective practice and improvement.

Professional learning

Professional learning is valued and staff have access to a range of professional learning opportunities including online training, formal courses, mentoring, supervision and access to the leadership team.

 We set a good example and encourage other students to also observe safety rules at all times.

Bus supervisors’ responsibilities  

  • Inform students about inappropriate behaviors such as fighting, cursing, throwing objects, and hitting.
  • Warn students a second time before reporting them.
  • Use good common sense in dealing with the people at your stop.

 

BUS supervisors

  • Bus supervisors are assigned to bus duty to assist the driver with student safety while on the bus.
  • They assist with safety at bus stops and schools by having students stand in an orderly manner, in a line behind the patrol, while the bus is approaching for pick-up.
  • They help children get on and off the bus. They count the students as they get off the bus when they arrive at the school in the morning.
  • They help students and keep them ordered, also assists students exiting from side exits during an emergency.
  • During bus evacuation drills, they will open the emergency exits from inside the bus, exit, and stand beside the door to assist students. Throughout this process, school personnel will be posted alongside the patrols to prevent student injuries and monitor the drill.
  • Bus supervisors should not move from their seats to perform their duties while the bus is in motion. In order to be alert and helpful to the bus driver, they should not use headphones, play video games or read during the bus ride.
  • They should use the arm-stretched signal from schoolmates to wait in back of you as the bus approaches for pick-up at the bus stop and on school grounds.

School police functions

In their role of encouraging students to observe safety rules, S.P. can have a significant, positive influence on their schoolmates. They influence other students both formally as part of their regular duties, as well as informally because they serve as student role models of appropriate and safe behavior. In addition, S.P. can bring valuable safety information to schoolmates in classrooms.

SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS

The relationship between school bus drivers and bus supervisors is very important. The school bus driver and bus supervisors work together as a team to ensure safe transport of students. The bus driver provides guidance and support to bus supervisors as they carry out their bus duties. Bus drivers are responsible for:

  • Assisting, instructing, and supporting safety in the performance of the bus supervisors’ duties.
  • Reviewing proper crossing procedures and the signal that will be given to students indicating it is safe to cross with the bus supervisor.
  • Instructing bus supervisors in how to activate the emergency brake and 4 way hazard lights, use of the two-way radio and turning off the bus ignition, should there be an emergency and the driver is disabled.
  • Reviewing proper emergency evacuation procedures with the bus supervisors.
  • Reviewing and discussing bus/bus stop safety violations and reports with the bus supervisors.
