Principals must take reasonable steps to reduce risks to students.

School leaders and leadership teams play a vital role in shaping the culture of a school and ensuring that effective policies, procedures and strategies are in place to respond to and prevent all forms of bullying.

Schools that adopt a whole-school approach to bullying prevention, including engaging all members of their community and responding to concerns appropriately, are more likely to succeed in creating safe, respectful and inclusive school environments.
