Caring, respectful and safe learning environments

Tools and Resources to Support Caring, Respectful and Safe Learning Environments

In order for children and youth to be successful in school, it is important that the learning environment provides a sense of belonging, acceptance, and safety (emotional, psychological and physical). To support student success, Alberta Education, through the School Act, is focused on ensuring schools are caring, respectful, safe, orderly, positive, productive, and free from the fear of physical and emotional harm.

Section 45(8) of the School Act states “A board shall ensure that each student enrolled in a school operated by a board is provided with a safe and caring environment that fosters and maintains respectful and responsible behaviours.
