Return to Children’s Wellbeing…

In the last decade there has been a high level of discussion and community concern over the presence of bullying and violence in schools.

As a result of these concerns all schools are required to:

  • Have an anti-bullying policy or a section on anti-bullying included within their Student Behaviour Management policy / Student Code of Conduct.
  • Have an easily locatable and well publicised link on their website to the anti-bullying policy.
  • Review their anti-bullying policy annually and involve parents and students in this process.
  • Provide the Governing Council with updates each term in relation to school bullying and any anti-bullying programs in place or being considered. This report is to be made available to the school community via the school newsletter and be on the schoolā€™s website for easy access.
  • Include a requirement for parents and/or students to annually acknowledge/agree to the Student Code of Conduct / Behaviour Management Policy.
