At Our Lady Help of Christians, we believe that all members of the community have the right to a learning and working environment free from intimidation, humiliation and harm. We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying. We believe that bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form. In witnessing Christian values we reject ideas, beliefs and behaviours, which marginalised or victimised people. The school has developed a comprehensive set of policies and procedures to manage allegations of bullying and harassment.
