Anti-bullying

Bullying behaviour can happen in all social contexts within our community

The NSW Anti-bullying Strategy uses evidence-based research to support educators, parents and carers, and students to identify, prevent, and respond effectively to student bullying behaviours. The information on this website has been developed by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with the Association of Independent Schools of NSW and Catholic Schools NSW.
