Safe & Accepting Schools

Healthy Relationships

The DSBN is committed to safe and caring learning environments that promote healthy relationships and behaviours. The DSBN recognizes that sexual violence is a serious and complex problem with adverse affects on individual student well-being, learning environments, and the community at large. Through age or grade appropriate curricular learning and school initiatives, students learn about consent, how to recognize healthy relationships and respond to unhealthy ones, and how to stay safe online.

To assist staff and parents/families/guardians with supporting students who have experienced sexual violence, the DSBN has developed the following guide: Supporting Students Who Have Experienced Sexual Violence.
