Field-Led Course

FLC 6: Professional Perspectives: Leading Safe, Caring, & Inclusive Schools

Course Overview

Using current literature in the area of safe, caring, and inclusive schools, this course will help learning leaders to reflect, apply, and collaboratively plan for a whole-school approach for safety and belonging that supports students’ cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth and development. Participants in this field-led course will explore how school leaders build, communicate and nurture a shared vision for safe, caring and inclusive schools, within divisional and provincial frameworks, that reflects the needs of the community. This includes the way that leaders set direction, build relationships within the school and the wider community, and how they create collaborative teams, structures and processes that ensure that students’ educational needs remain at the heart of all decision-making.
