Safe & Caring School
In Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools we are proud to proclaim that our principles of practice underline everything we do. The first two statements in our Principles of Practice support our commitment to Safe and Caring Schools:
We honour our children.
We provide a safe & secure environment.
Our schools are places where all students, staff, and parents feel welcome. Our motto, “Inspired by Christ, Aspiring to Excellence” and our Principles of Practice, proudly proclaim that our schools are Christ-filled centres that ensure a satisfactory climate for learning and that we respect each student as a person, unique in God’s creation.
Our Division has clear administrative procedures outlining the division’s policy on student behaviour and staff discipline procedures. These are located in Administrative Procedures # 310-314 and can be found on the Division’s website.
Our division Education Plan further outlines our commitment in Goal 2 Outcome 2.2 “Schools are safe and caring” and Outcome 2.3 “Children at risk have their needs addressed through effective programs and supports.” We are serious about ensuring our students feel safe at school and are in a Catholic Christian environment conducive to learning.
Each school has student behaviour expectations specific to the needs of that school to ensure a safe and caring environment. These expectations are listed in the school handbook or are posted in classrooms. Expectations are shared with students at the beginning of each year and are also shared with parents so we can work together to provide all students with the best possible educational experience while in our schools.
