Lakeview Public School Code of Conduct

Lakeview Philosophy

At Lakeview Public School, we believe that the school is a learning community with standards and expectations appropriate to an academic institution. We are an academic learning environment, and negative behaviours will interfere with the well-being and academic progress of other students. Our goal is to establish effective discipline throughout the school so that children learn to eventually self-discipline. In order to ensure a safe and secure environment, students must learn that the structure of the school community requires that its students learn to comply with rules and limitations, and to follow directions given by the adults who are in a legitimate position of authority (teachers, lunch supervisors, early childhood educators, educational assistants, office personnel, administration, etc.).

The LPS staff is committed to the goal of ensuring the success and well-being of all of the students in our care. Students must also learn the skills, attitudes and knowledge associated with being responsible and cooperative members of the learning community so that they can be self-disciplined and make appropriate independent choices that take the rights and needs of others into account. Our goal is to help students be responsible, accountable, self-disciplined, and self-confident so that that they experience a positive sense of self-worth which is fundamental to healthy self-esteem. Our focus is to create a safe and caring atmosphere where students develop self-respect, respect for others as well as respect for school property and the environment. The philosophy at Lakeview Public School is based on the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board’s mission statement and the Ministry of Education’s Guidelines for student conduct. Students, staff and visitors have the right to a safe school environment, free from intimidation, harassment and threat. Physical, verbal, sexual or psychological abuse, bullying, discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, language, sexuality, disability or any other attribute is considered unacceptable. We promote safe and caring school principles and focus on the development of empathy, co-operation and equity among all members of our school community.
