Approaches to bullying

All members of the school community are committed to ensuring a safe and caring environment that promotes personal growth, achievement and positive relationships for all students.

Staff, students, parents and carers have the right to feel safe and be treated equally and with respect.

All students have the right to feel secure and to learn without disruption, and teachers have the right to teach without hindrance and interruption. A person who bullies another person/s is denying them their rights.

The School will not tolerate any action that undermines a person’s right to work or play without interference or fear of victimisation or harassment.

All forms of bullying, whether it is physical, verbal, and non-verbal or cyber are not tolerated at any level at Keilor Views Primary School.

Keilor Views Primary School will take whatever steps are necessary to stop such behaviour and educate both the target of bullying and the person demonstrating bullying behaviour.
