Safe and Caring Schools: A Whole-School Approach to Planning for Safety and Belonging

Manitoba Education and Training is committed to supporting school communities in providing safe learning environments. Guided by Safe and Caring Schools legislation, Manitoba school boards are proactive in creating and sustaining safe schools.

Healthy school communities, where positive relationships are established, are known to prevent and respond to issues of school safety. With parents as partners, educators do their best to ensure all children and youth feel safe, confident, and capable as they interact with others and develop as learners. Utilizing a whole-school approach to planning for safety and belonging, educators, students and parents work together to address  serious issues  recognized as ‘bullying’ and school violence.

Parents, students and educators care about living and learning in a world that is healthy and safe. With all members of the school community sharing responsibility and working toward this goal, schools are safe and caring places to learn. Together, through this lens of strength, connections, possibilities, and solutions are found to keeping our schools safe and caring.
