Safe Schools

smile boy thumbs up copyright clear microsoft.pngThe staff, students and community are proudly committed to creating a positive school climate where all members of the school community feel safe, comfortable and accepted.  Our Duffin's Bay PS Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan 2016-2017.pdf outlines our goals and priorities, based on analysis of the results of the DDSB School Climate Survey. 

Duffin's Bay Public School engages in many proactive initiatives to promote a positive and safe culture, including:   
                • Classroom Agreements
                • Progressive Discipline
                • Restorative Practice
                • C.A.R.E.S. Program (Character Education)
                • Student Leadership Initiatives (Student Voice)
                • Equity and Inclusive Education
                • Bully Prevention, Intervention and Awareness Initiatives (e.g. Bullying Prevention Week, Pink Shirt Day) 
Some characteristics of a school with a positive learning climate are:


·       Students and staff both feel safe, and are safe;

·       Healthy and inclusive relationships are promoted;

·       Students are encouraged to be positive leaders in their school community;

·       All education partners, including students, are actively engaged;

·       Bullying prevention, awareness-raising strategies and intervention for students and staff are reinforced through programs that address discrimination based on such factors as age, race, sexual orientation, gender, faith, disability, ethnicity and socio-economic disadvantage;

·       Improvement of student achievement is emphasized.
