Safe, Caring, and Respectful Schools

All school staff will take steps to prevent bullying and ensure children feel safe in reporting to an adult. School staff will respond to reported incidents by listening to the child, taking the incident seriously and ensuring action is taken quickly to resolve the situation. Restorative approaches, rather than punitive, will be used in resolving the incident. Appropriate consequences will be applied. The target, the offender and the bystander(s) should be included in creating solutions.
