Broadlands Public School Code of Conduct

Code de comportement de l’école publique Broadlands

It is our hope at Broadlands School to provide our students, staff and community with a safe, secure, harmonious and stimulating environment; where sensitivity to and caring for other people are as important as academic learning.

The code of conduct has been developed in collaboration with students, staff, and parents to ensure that the accepted values of our school and our community are known, understood and respected.

Broadlands Dress Code

Dress Code* is the appropriate dress policy established by each school in consultation with parents through their school councils, and may include a school uniform.

Inappropriate Dress* refers to a standard of attire which does not meet the school community standards of decency and shall include language and/or representations on attire that indicates gang affiliation, that depicts violence, profanity, racial or gender discrimination or discrimination of any kind whatsoever, or that otherwise demeans an identifiable individual or group.

*Definitions from TDSB Policy P042 APPROPRIATE DRESS

 At Broadlands, students, staff, parents, caregivers and volunteers are expected to adhere to a dress code that reflects a respectful attitude towards themselves, others and in particular toward learning. This dress code is in effect on school property and on school field trips or other school events.

Respect for self, others, and a positive learning environment is demonstrated in many ways one of which is the clothing we wear. Although certain clothing may be acceptable at the beach, a concert, or more informal situations, these items are not acceptable at school. Students are to wear clothing that is neat, clean and appropriate for school.

  • Tank tops with thin straps or very large armholes shall not be worn to school (general rule - straps need to be wider than two of the student’s fingers)
  • Clothing shall not be see-through and needs to cover the torso, including the chest, stomach and mid-thigh areas (general rule: the clothing is longer than the extended fingers of the student standing)
  • Clothing shall cover undergarments
  • Clothing shall not convey an unacceptable message: Promoting violence, issues of oppression (racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.), drugs, or alcohol; or displaying lewd or sexually offensive message or inappropriate language
  • Hats, caps, bandanas, sweat bands, ear muffs, hoods and other head coverings are not to be worn in the school except for medical or religious purposes
  • Outer clothing such as hats, gloves, jackets, coats and heavy boots are to be left in the classroom during the day while students are in class
  • Students need to have appropriate clothing for active participation in physical education classes (running shoes). They may also bring a change of shorts, socks, track pants, T-shirt

If a student arrives at school inappropriately dressed, a staff member will meet with the student to discuss what changes must be made in order that he/she may remain at the school. The student may be asked to:

  • Turn inappropriate clothing inside out
  • Change into clothing provided by the school
  • Make a telephone call to alert a parent of the concerns and make immediate arrangements to have appropriate clothing brought to school or, alternately, confirm arrangements to return home to change

If a student demonstrates continuing disregard for a school policy, progressive discipline will be used to resolve the situation.
