Student safety is of prime importance. At Northern Gateway Public Schools, we have several measures and procedures in place to ensure the safety of students, staff and guests. These include:
- a Division Emergency Response Plan and School Emergency Response Plans which work in conjunction with other local support and emergency response agencies within our communities.
- on-site emergency response teams at each school, along with a Division-based Emergency Response team that provides support and aid to schools at time of an emergency.
- All staff are regularly trained on emergency protocols and drills are practiced throughout the year at each school.
Northern Gateway Public Schools is committed to ensuring that every student and staff member employed by the Board is provided with a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe environment in which to learn and work.
Learn about the Violence/Threat Risk Assessment process, which addresses violent or threat-making behaviour in schools through an intervention process rather than a disciplinary process.
