Against Bullying Policy

Gleneagles Secondary College is committed to providing a safe and respectful learning environment where bullying will not be tolerated.

The purpose of this policy is to:

  • explain the definition of bullying
  • make clear that all forms of bullying at Gleneagles Secondary will not be tolerated
  • ask that everyone in our school community be alert to signs and evidence of bullying behaviour, and accept responsibility to report bullying behaviour to school staff
  • ensure that all reported incidents of bullying are appropriately investigated and addressed
  • ensure that support is provided to students who may be affected by bullying behaviour (including victims, bystanders and perpetrators)
  • seek parental and peer group support in addressing and preventing bullying behaviour at Gleneagles Secondary

When responding to bullying behaviour, Gleneagles Secondary aims to:

  • be proportionate, consistent and responsive
  • find a constructive and positive solution for everyone
  • stop the bullying from happening again
  • restore the relationships between the students involved

We acknowledge that school staff owe a duty of care to students to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk of reasonably foreseeable harm, which can include harm that may be caused by bullying behaviour.
