Safe & Caring Learning Environments

Safe & Caring Learning Environments

Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools believes everyone in the school community shares in the responsibility of creating, maintaining and promoting a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity, equity and human rights and fosters a sense of inclusion and belonging.   Federal (e.g. Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms) and provincial (e.g. School ActAlberta Human Rights Act) legislation, policy and directives are in place to recognize, support and protect the fundamental human rights of all members of the school community.

Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools strives to ensure inclusive learning environments that are welcoming, caring, respectful and safe, and which respect diversity and foster a sense of belonging for all students, staff and families.  This means that each and every person, regardless of race, religious beliefs, colour, gender, gender identity, gender expression, physical disability, mental disability, age, ancestry, place of origin, marital status, source of income, family status or sexual orientation of that person or class of persons, has relevant learning opportunities and appropriate supports needed to feel valued and to be successful in school.
