Inclusive, Safe and Caring Schools
The Board believes that it is the right of each student and each staff member to a safe and orderly learning environment, free of concern about personal safety and, therefore, the Board shall:
(a) reduce and try to eliminate the incidence of bullying and violence in the schools;
(b) provide opportunities for students to develop the skills necessary to handle and avert violent and potentially violent situations;
(c) promote the long-term prevention of violence by preparing students to manage their lives and relationships in non-violent ways;
(d) work co-operatively and in shared responsibility with students, parents, school councils, staff, the wider community and the police to foster a safe and inclusive school environment and to fulfill the guiding principles and objectives of the Board;
(e) ensure that all members of the school community are treated with respect and dignity.
