Culture For Learning

A positive culture for learning impacts the academic, social-emotional and physical well-being of students, staff and community members.

The many promising things in Thames Valley that support a strong culture for learning include: school-based initiatives, professional learning opportunities, conferences, classes dedicated to school culture, coaching, celebrations, redesigning physical spaces, presentations and leadership opportunities.

These opportunities are all designed to support equity, mental health and well-being, and safe, inclusive and accepting schools.

Safe Schools

Schools are about learning in a safe, caring, learning environment. In order for effective learning to take place, students need to feel safe and welcome. Students, their families, school staff and the community have the right to expect that schools be safe and free of violence.

We are committed to ensuring positive learning environments at all our schools. Our focus on an inclusive culture based on respect is reflected in our policies and codes of conduct as well as in our curriculum.

See the Safe Schools webpage for more information.

Mental Health and Well-Being

We believe that supporting mental health and well-being is essential for development and learning and is an enabler for school success.

Visit the Mental Health and Well-Being webpage to access information and resources for parents and students.

Equity and Inclusive Education

We commit to improving student achievement by embracing diversity and affirming respect for all students, staff and community members.

Our goal is to identify and eliminate any barriers that may limit engagement by students, parents and the community in board and school activities
