Schools are about learning in a safe, caring, learning environment. In order for effective learning to take place, students need to feel safe and welcome. Our Safe Schools Plan outlines a variety of initiatives and promote a safe, caring and learning environment.
The Definition of Bullying
Bullying is a form of repeated, persistent and aggressive behaviour directed at an individual or individuals that is intended to cause (or should be know to cause) fear and distress and/or harm to another person's body, feelings, self-esteem or reputation. Bullying occurs in a context where there is a real or perceived power imbalance.
In addition to the programs and procedures that we implement at the school, we encourage parents and students to report incidents of bullying.
As part of this strategy, we have a Bullying Reporting Box in the office as well as an online reporting mechanism that allows students and parents to report an incident of bullying anonymously. All parents/students can report an incident without identifying themselves, as required by the board.
In addition, two pamphlets are available as a Safe School Resource in the front foyer at the school. (Safe Schools, Creating a Culture of Caring and Bullying, We Can All Help Stop It)
