All students and staff have the right to be treated fairly and with dignity in an environment free from intimidation; harassment; victimisation and discrimination. Our school rejects all forms of bullying behaviours and is committed to providing a safe, inclusive and respectful learning community that promotes student wellbeing.  We incorporate evidence-based approaches and strategies that nurture and encourage constructive relationships, connections and positive behaviour for learning.

Understanding Bullying

Bullying has three key features. 

  • It involves a misuse of power in a relationship.
  • It is ongoing and repeated.
  • It involves behaviours that can cause harm.

Bullying can be verbal, physical, social, or psychological and can be in person, online, obvious (overt), or hidden (covert). Bullying behaviour can also involve intimidation, victimisation and harassment, including that based on sex, race, religion, disability or sexual orientation, both online and offline. Bullying can be illegal if it involves behaviours that include physical violence, threats of violence, damaging property or stalking.

Single incidents and conflict or fights between equals, whether in person or online, are not defined as bullying.

Anti-bullying Plan

In line with the Bullying of Students - Prevention and Response Policy, the Narara Valley High School Anti-bullying Plan outlines the school's wellbeing initiatives which aim to prevent and protect students against bullying.

Reporting Incidents

Students can report incidents to any staff member or submit a Bullying Report Form to their Year Advisor. Students can access support from their Year Advisor,  a Deputy Principal, Head Teacher Wellbeing, a School Counsellor, the School Chaplain, the Anti-Racism Officer, the Wellbeing Team or a trusted teacher.

The NSW Anti-bullying website supports school staff, parents and carers, and students to discourage, prevent, identify, and respond effectively to student bullying behaviour.
