Student Safety

Student Safety

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.

Crisis Hotlines

A variety of helpful phone numbers available for children, teens, and parents in need at times of crisis. Most are available 24/7.

Violence/Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA)

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.

Welcoming, Caring, Respectful, and Safe Learning Environments

Northern Gateway Public Schools is committed to ensuring that each student and every staff member employed by the Board is provided with a welcoming, caring, respectful, and safe environment in which to learn and work.
