The staff of Lisnagarvey High School strives to eradicate bullying behaviours in school through the series of anti-bullying
initiatives. The clear message in our school is that bullying behaviour will NOT be tolerated. We want any pupil who feels
threatened to know that they may report their fears in the knowledge that the person displaying bullying behaviour will be
firmly dealt with.
The school’s Anti-Bullying ethos is reinforced throughout the year as the topic is discussed in lessons, at dedicated assemblies
and during national Anti-Bullying Week. Every student knows what action to take in the event that they are a pupil experiencing
bullying behaviour, or witness to a bullying incident, and all staff are well trained in dealing with issues swiftly.
Pupils displaying bullying behaviour will be sanctioned for their actions but the main focus of staff is to provide support to all
pupils involved. Pupils displaying bullying behaviour often act as a response to ongoing issues in their own lives. We support
those students, as well as offering security and support to the pupils experiencing bullying behaviour.
