The Balmy Beach Code of Behaviour is a guideline for all students at our school. It is intended to guide behaviour on the way to school, here at school and on the way home from school. As well as providing a safe and secure environment, we want to create a climate that is welcoming and that provides for the involvement of all members of the school community: students, staff, parents and guardians. We use acceptable language all times. This means no name-calling, put downs, swearing, rumours or teasing. We respect and follow directions from all school staff. We do everything we can to make everyone at Balmy feel welcome, happy and safe regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability. We keep our hands, feet and objects to ourselves. Play fighting is not allowed. We show proper care of school property, the environment and the property of others. Children experiencing difficulty with any aspect of our Code of Behaviour will be dealt with on an individual basis by staff members and the principal. The guidelines established by the Toronto District School Board for serious occurrences will be followed.
