All those who work with students in Nova Scotia schools want children and youth to be safe.
As a teacher, a principal, or school support staff, you have a strong influence in the lives of students.
- You help create the culture of the school community.
- Your support is vital to bring about change.
In Nova Scotia schools, all staff work together to promote a safe and positive learning environment.
You have a duty to report incidents of severely disruptive behaviour.
Schools must respond to such incidents. This includes bullying and cyberbullying.
- They need to know they can and should reach out to a family member, friend, teacher, or health care professional.
- Resources are available to help. You can help students connect with these resources if they need them.
