Lynn Valley School's Code of Conduct is developed by staff, students and parents to support the social and emotional well-being of all students and honour the diversity of our learning community. It is reviewed every two years.
In accordance with North Vancouver School District's Policy 302, Lynn Valley Code of Conduct is developed in alignment with the prohibitive grounds of discrimination in accordance with the BC Human Rights Code Sections 7 & 8, as these relate to the school environment. Anti-bullying measures will ensure all students, regardless of their sex, race, religion, culture, sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, enjoy a safe, inclusive and welcoming learning environment.
All staff members are responsible for the implementation of the School Code of Conduct. It is the intent of this code to always encourage, teach and reinforce positive social emotional skills.
We want all students at Lynn Valley to be safe and feel a sense of belonging at school in order to become responsible citizens who care about each other and our school community. Our school plan outlines our commitment and focus on improving students sense of belonging, academic success and positive behavior through the intentional teaching of these social emotional skills:

Collaborative Problem Solving
At Lynn Valley Elementary, we believe in supporting positive behavior through Collaborative Problem Solving.
In the CPS model, the problem solving is of the collaborative and proactive variety. The goal is to foster a collaborative partnership between adults and students and to engage them in solving the problems that affect their lives. As such, the CPS model is non-punitive and non-adversarial, decreases the likelihood of conflict, enhances relationships, improves communication, and helps students and adults learn and display the skills on the more positive side of human nature: empathy, appreciating how one's behavior is affecting others, resolving disagreements in ways that do not involve conflict, taking another's perspective, and honesty. We are committed to the intentional teaching of the skills needed to improve all learner's sense of belonging and positive behavior.
