Dear Parents of St. Clement CES:

The WCDSB has a Ministry requirement to conduct a School Climate Survey every two years with students, staff and parents. We are asking that you please complete the parent survey between March 18th and April 5th, 2019. It can be accessed through this link:

The focus of the survey is on bullying/harassment of students. Strategies for addressing bullying/harassment include annual training for all staff, our playground supervision schedule and plan (including zones), staff use of official Ministry forms for reporting bullying to the principal, weekly class meetings, and a whole-school Restorative Circles Justice approach. Also, information related to our school’s code of conduct is included at the front of all student agendas. Although we formally raise awareness about prevention of bullying and harassment during the Ministry’s Bullying Prevention and Awareness Week every November, at St. Clement CES, we always address bullying when it is reported and emphasize on a daily basis the importance of treating each other with respect.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey!
