Code of Conduct


The focus at Forest Glen P.S. is student learning. We believe that students and staff have the right to learn and teach in a safe and supportive environment. Forest Glen P.S. students and staff are expected to be respectful, responsible and helpful in all areas of the school community, at all times. The partnership of student, staff and parent/guardian will ensure a positive, effective learning community.


At Forest Glen we work to promote a Climate for Learning and Working based on the principles of equity, inclusion and respect. These principles help to build safe, nurturing, engaging relationships and environments. The Peel Board’s Character Attributes are reinforced in all areas of the school and help to prevent conflict, bullying and violence. Our restorative practices seek to repair harm that has been caused and rebuild relationships between all participants.



















All members of the Forest Glen community are reminded that our school Code of Conduct applies to all areas of the school environment:


●In the classrooms ●In the hallways ●In the gym

●On the school yard ●On buses or field trips ●ANYWHERE, ANYTIME!

Support and Consequences


It is Forest Glen's intention to provide support and consequences for students to facilitate a safe, orderly, and caring learning environment, and to promote self-awareness and respect among students and staff. Awareness of acceptable behaviour and consequences, and self-discipline is everyone’s responsibility.


Regular classroom routines will include reminders for students who are momentarily off-track, plus consequences for repeat or more serious behaviour concerns. This could be in the form of a verbal reminder/warning or a non-verbal signal.


Our school encourages, supports and recognizes acceptable behaviour in our students through a variety of positive practices. Progressive discipline is an approach that makes use of a continuum of supports, interventions and consequences, building upon strategies which promote positive behaviours.

Expectations for safe, respectful, responsible, and helpful behaviours are consistent for all Forest Glen students.
