Preventing bullying

PublishingPageContent

We all want Australian schools to be safe, supportive and respectful teaching and learning communities that promote student wellbeing.​

Safe and supportive schools require planning and a focus on the principles and effective practices that promote safe and supportive school communities outlined in the Australian Student Wellbeing Framework​.

Components of planning include school policy, comprehensive school audits and providing training and supporting school staff.

Schools can adopt a number of strategies and approaches to create safe and supportive school communities where everyone feels safe, supported and respected. 

As well as the broad strategies that work to prevent bullying, schools may want to adopt additional approaches and programs for their specific needs. The STEPS decision-making tool helps schools to select the most appropriate evidence-based approach for their goals.

By promoting the involvement of staff, students and families, school leaders can foster a school climate that promotes learning and wellbeing, and the capacity to work together to address issues that do arise.
