Schools can play an important role in ensuring staff and students who have experienced violence are supported to get the help they need.
How might this happen in your school?
Your school develops and disseminates policies and procedures on how to identify and respond to incidents, suspicions or disclosures that a staff member or student has experienced, been exposed to or used violence.
Staff are regularly briefed on responding to disclosures from students, staff and other adults.
Your school has referral protocols in place with relevant response organisations, including domestic and family violence and rape crisis services.
Your school policies and processes clearly reflect your legal responsibilities regarding student well-being and mandatory reporting, and all staff understand their responsibilities.
