A person is bullied when they are intentionally exposed regularly to the negative or harmful actions by one or more other people. Bullies are people who intimidate, exclude, threaten and/or hurt others repeatedly. Bullying is a clear form of harassment.
The school will provide a positive culture where bullying is not accepted.
Everyone will have the right of respect from others, the right to learn or to teach, and a right to feel safe and secure in their school environment.
Once identified; bully, victim and witnesses will be spoken with, and all incidents or allegation of bullying will be fully investigated and documented. Both bully and victim will be offered counselling and support. If bullying is ongoing, parents will be contacted and consequences implemented that are consistent with the school’s Student Code of Conduct.
Consequences may involve exclusion from class, school suspension, ongoing counselling from authorised staff. Positive behaviour will be awarded.
All policies are also available in PDF format as part of Parent's Handbook.
