Professional Perspectives
FLC 6: Leading Safe, Caring, and 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.
