INTERACTION BETWEEN STUDENTS & ADULTS INVOLVED IN SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

PR-5-8

PROCEDURAL DOCUMENT

Effective Date: 4 September 2012

Rationale

To establish a standard of behaviour acceptable to both Board of Trustees and Staff for those involved in any school activity. 

To encourage and promote opportunities for community involvement in school activities. 

To ensure that professional standards are maintained. 

Behaviour will be governed by the following code of ethics. 

Code of Ethics

Any participation is seen as a position of trust. 

Unacceptable behaviour from adults will result in them being asked to leave the vicinity of the class or area.  Unacceptable behaviour could include -

-   inappropriate language (swearing)

-   putdowns - loud, negative comments

-   inappropriate touching 

While accepting that discipline must be maintained at all times, it must be done in a positive way so the enjoyment of the occasion is not lost. 

Consumption of alcohol and drugs will not be permitted when an adult is responsible for students in a school activity. Smoking will be allowed when the person is not actively supervising students and is out of students field of vision view and where allowed must be done discreetly. 

At all times personnel will pursue practices and exhibit conduct that prevent them from being vulnerable to allegations of indecency or child abuse. 

Any person involved with any interaction with students may be asked to read and sign this policy in the presence of the Principal and in doing so agree to abide by this code of ethics.
