School Philosophy


We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.


At Crawford Plains we strongly support a philosophy of inclusion within our school.  This means that we welcome all students that live in our community. Students with special needs are accommodated within regular classrooms with a wide variety of targeted and specialized supports.  Many elements of differentiated instruction are incorporated so students have multiple opportunities for taking in information, making sense of ideas and expressing what they learn.  Similar supports are also provided for our “At Risk” and above average students.  Crawford Plains has a rich culture where all students feel they are capable, connected and contributing members.
