North Shuswap Elementary School strives to create a safe, caring environment where parents, students, staff and community work together towards common goals which enable students to achieve success in social, emotional and academic development.

Code of Conduct


Mission Statement:
At North Shuswap we believe in a purposeful, directed
learning environment, where everyone
can feel happy, safe and valued.

To meet this goal, we expect all students to follow the expectations of this code.  This applies to activities on school premises and during activities that are off school grounds that are organized
or sponsored by the school and to behaviour beyond these times when it affects the safe, caring or orderly environment of the school.

This code is grounded in a set of guiding principles based on
students’ rights and responsibilities.

Rights and Responsibilities as a Student:

  • I have a right to learn.  It is my responsibility to listen to instructions, complete assignments and not to interrupt others’ learning.
  • I have a right to hear and be heard.  It is my responsibility to listen quietly when others are speaking.
  • I have a right to be treated respectfully.  It is my responsibility to treat others respectfully.
  • I have a right to be safe.  It is my responsibility not to physically or verbally harm or threaten anyone.  It is my responsibility not to carry or use a weapon.
Students are expected to act in a safe, respectful and
responsible manner and to treat all others
with politeness and consideration.

In Reference to the BC Human Rights Code:

North Shuswap promotes the values expressed in the BC Human Rights Code respecting the rights of individuals in accordance with the law – prohibiting discrimination based on race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex or sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

The school will treat seriously behaviour or communication that does not comply with the Human Rights Code.

Unacceptable behaviours include bullying, cyberbulllying, harassment, intimidation, threatening or violent behaviours.
These include behaviours that take place on the school grounds as well as any other location that has an impact on the school environment.


Consequences will vary from individual to individual (depending on age, maturity, special needs and other special considerations). We will focus on restorative consequences, but may include any of the following, depending on circumstances:

-Natural and logical consequences as determined by the Principal
-In-school suspension
-Out of school suspension
-Suspension pending District hearing
-Parent/student/principal meeting

Special consideration may apply to students with special needs, if they are unable to comply with this Code of Conduct due to having a disability of intellectual, physical, sensory, emotional or behavioural nature.
