Anti Bullying Policy
The College implements a whole school approach in handling student welfare and bullying to make sure that every student is safe and happy at school. The anti bullying policy aims to protect students from bullying and foster a school culture where bullying is unacceptable. The school Anti-Bullying Policy allows the College to deal with bullying promptly and effectively by involving counseling, parental involvement, mediation, warnings and disciplinary action.
Bullying includes any sort of infringement involving physical, verbal, social, psychological and property abuse.A student is to report an incident of bullying to their pastoral teacher, teacher on playground duty, the school counsellor or College Principal. Students can also choose the option of Peer Mediation, which provides students with an alternative method of mediation. Students can request mediation through a staff member or senior student with the senior student being agreed to by the College.
If a parent suspects that their child is a victim of bullying then they need to contact the school counsellor or College Principal as soon as possible. Once the matter has been investigated, parents will be notified regarding appropriate action. Parents of the victim and the perpetrator will be kept informed throughout the process.
