Code of Conduct

A+ A-

What is a Code of Conduct?

The Code of Conduct establishes standards of behaviour that are consistent with the Provincial Code of Conduct and applies to all members of the school community. The Code of Conduct promotes respect within the learning and teaching environment, and sets clear Board and school standards of behaviour.

Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board believes that all individuals attending on Board or school property, on school buses, or at school-related events or activities, should be treated with dignity and respect.

The Code of Conduct promotes a positive school climate which is a contributing factor to a safe and orderly environment. It also supports Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board’s commitment to all who work and engage in our schools feeling safe, supported and accepted.


Students demonstrate respect and responsibility when they:

  • Come to school prepared, on time, and ready to learn
  • Show respect for themselves, others and those in authority
  • Refrain from bringing anything to school that may compromise the safety of self or others
  • Demonstrate responsibility for actions or behaviour on or off school property or outside of the school day that would have an impact on the school climate
  • Follow the established rules and take responsibility for their own actions
  • Model the character attributes of Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board
  • Demonstrate appropriate participation in the civic life of the community.
