Code of Conduct

Purpose: Our goal is to provide a safe, caring and orderly learning environment.

Coldstream School has these following expectations that apply to behaviour at school, during school organized or sponsored activities, and behaviours beyond these times that negatively impacts the safe, caring or orderly environment of the school, and/or student learning.  Examples of ‘beyond times’ include bus pick up areas, walking to and from school and on-line behaviour.

Coldstream School promotes the values expressed in the BC Human Rights Code respecting the rights of all individuals in accordance with the law including discriminatory publication and discrimination in accommodation, service and facility in the school environment. We do not tolerate negative behaviour towards another person based on race, colour, religion, ancestry, place of origin, marital status, family status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, physical or mental disabilities or any other type of discrimination. The school will treat the behaviour seriously with consequences to match the negative behaviour.

Commitment: Our school is committed to having clearly stated expectations for student behaviour. These expectations will be explicitly taught in classrooms and reinforced by all staff members.

Coldstream Elementary is a school that embraces a safe, respectful and welcoming learning environment for all students, staff and parents.

Coldstream staff members use a pro-active approach when dealing with discipline. Students are directly taught expected appropriate behaviour and routines.

Students should be working towards being a positive member of our Coldstream Cougars. Our motto of Coldstream CARES stands for Cooperation – Achievement – Respect/Responsibility – Enthusiasm – Safety.
