Sacred Heart College maintains that bullying and harassment is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated. The College is committed to providing information and training for staff to support our students and colleagues in recognising and addressing bullying behaviour.
The College encourages both staff and students to immediately report incidences of bullying and harassment that they witness or personnally experience. Action will be taken swiftly to resolve the situation and to ensure that it does not happen again. Counselling may be offered to all persons involved in the incident. Parents may be notified and the College would expect parental support in dealing with the matter. There may also be need for mediation and restorative justice processes to be put in place. Any continuation of bullying or harassment by a student will be deemed to be a very serious matter and will be addressed by the Principal, Deputy Principal , Welfare Officer or Year Level Coordinator in line with College disciplinary procedures.
Bullying and harassment may be reported to the police.
