Preventing bullying and violence


The Department of Education wants students to enjoy school and feel that they can learn in a safe and supportive environment. Bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence are actions and behaviours that are not acceptable in schools. 

State schools have a Responsible behaviour plan for students that describes how they create positive environments and deal with bullying behaviours.
