Code of Conduct

A Code of Conduct policy has been written by Thames Valley District School Board to adhere to the Safe Schools Act and to the Ministry Policy on School Board Codes of Conduct!  This TVDSB policy is in effect at our school.

We want our students and staff to feel safe and valued at our school.  In this regard we have developed our “Respect & Responsibility” focus to promote positive social interactions at our school.


Students at Eastdale Public School are expected to follow the Code of Behaviourwhich has been jointly developed and endorsed by the students, staff, and EPIE. Appropriate interpersonal conduct is expected on the playground, in classrooms, on the bus, and on field trips.

The main aim at Eastdale Public School is to provide the best possible positive learning environment for the development of physical, mental, social, and emotional maturity of each child.   Students progress continuously from basic skills, attitudes, and values to increasingly complex skills and mature attitudes.  The school curricula and subject content are integrated, often through group work, so that learning is meaningful and will foster independent life-long learners who will think clearly, feel deeply, and act wisely.

We believe that success builds success.  Generally, successful students are less inclined to be in difficult situations.  We program for success and treat children with firmness and respect.



At Eastdale Public School, rules are made to ensure the safety and well-being of the students, in order that the school will function harmoniously.  We attempt to develop self-discipline and instill self-respect, as well as respect for the feelings and property of others.  We, therefore, expect the children to follow school principles, as well as those established by individual teachers.   We welcome support from the community and will endeavour to respond to any concerns.  In all our dealings with children, we try to be fair.  


Eastdale’s Guiding School Principles: 

  1. Be here (make Eastdale a better place).
  2. Work Hard (Work hard for you). 
  3. Make someone’s day (lift those around you up). 


We believe that all students have equal access and rights to a quality education. We also believe that all students share common responsibilities for their own behaviour and work habits, with the collaboration and guidance of parents and teachers.
