We create a culture of care which will not tolerate bullying.
At St. Philip Neri Catholic School we believe that the Catholic ethos requires that all students, their families and employees within Catholic education have the right to a learning and work environment free from intimidation, humiliation and hurt. It is the responsibility of each school community to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying.
Flowing from the Christian vision expressed in the Diocesan Pastoral Care Policy, we, as a school are called to establish relationships which are grounded in love, compassion, reconciliation and justice. In witnessing Christian values St. Philip Neri Catholic School rejects ideas, beliefs and behaviours which marginalise or victimise people.
We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying. This policy builds on the school's pastoral care policy to provide clear and agreed procedures and strategies for combating bullying in the school, responding to bullying behaviours and protecting and supporting all parties involved.
