When a child is having a problem with a peer(s), it can be hard for parents or other students to know exactly what is happening. Is it bullying or are students just being unkind? Knowing the difference will determine how to deal with it.
Each type of behaviour must be handled differently to keep children safe and to help them learn what is the proper behaviour. We created this helpful infographic to show how schools and staff respond to conflict that arises between students.
Building safe school environments where students are respected is a top priority for Comox Valley Schools. We encourage students and parents to take action against bullying behaviour. If bullying behaviour is witnessed or experienced, talk to someone – a counsellor or trained professional. Tell someone. Notify your school or report it anonymously through the ERASE tool.
