WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL!!!
Staff at Biggar High are committed to creating a community where learning can take place and all members treat one another with respect.
To make this a reality, the “Better Behaviour, Better Learning” Working Group has over the past few years consulted with students, staff and School Board to develop policies that:
Biggar High’s approach to behaviour management focuses on promoting good behaviour and sharing responsibility for learning. We are very proud that, as a school, we have a common Code of Conduct for all members of our school community – staff, students and visitors.
- Help create a climate where staff and students feel that disruptive behaviour is dealt with in a fair and effective manner.
- Enable staff to respond to unacceptable behaviour in the classroom quickly, consistently and effectively, so allowing learning and teaching to continue.
The behaviour of most students in class is very good and it is therefore important to stress that the majority of students will never have occasion to enter into the formal disciplinary system. The working group will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the staged process and the incentive scheme.
