STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES

  • All members of the school workforce have a right to be treated with dignity and respect in the workplace.
  • Workplace harassment, bullying and victimisation are totally unacceptable
  • No member of the school workforce should have to tolerate harassment, bullying or victimisation from colleagues, pupils, members of the public or other individuals they may encounter at work, or on school trips
  • The school recognizes that any member of the school workforce can be subjected to these forms of behaviour
  • The school will assess whether harassment, bullying or victimisation has occurred based on the impact of the action(s) on the victim rather than the intent of the alleged perpetrator

The school strives for a workplace that’s free of harassment, bullying and victimisation through the following:

  • Raising awareness of the issues of harassment, bullying and victimisation, and refusing to tolerate these behaviours
