A Safe and Welcoming School Environment

Ontario schools should be a place where everyone – children, students, staff, parents and the community – feels welcome, safe and respected. A safe, inclusive and accepting school environment is essential for student well-being and achievement.

To foster and maintain an environment needed for children and students to succeed, the ministry's work related to Safe and Accepting Schools includes a number of resources and supports:

Resources for Parents and Families

Resources for School Boards and Schools

Urban and Priority High Schools Program

Premier's Awards for Accepting Schools
