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.
Cyber Safety & eLearning
Keilor Views Primary School believes the teaching of cyber safety and responsible online behaviour is essential in the lives of students and is best taught in partnership between home and school.
21st century students spend increasing amounts of time online, learning and collaborating. To be safe online and to gain the greatest benefit from the opportunities provided through an online environment, students need to do the right thing by themselves and others online, particularly when no one is watching.
Safe and responsible behaviour is explicitly taught at our school and parents/carers are requested to reinforce this behaviour at home.
Keilor Views Primary School uses the Ultranet, internet and digital technologies as teaching and learning tools. We see the internet and digital technologies as valuable resources, but acknowledge they must be used responsibly.
