Our School Anti-Bullying Plan

This plan outlines the processes for taking reasonable steps to prevent and respond to student bullying in our school and reflects the Bullying: Preventing and Responding to Student Bullying in Schools Policy of the New South Wales Department of Education and Communities.

The small school of Mumbil Public School is an inclusive environment, where diversity is affirmed and individual differences are respected. Quality education is provided for students to meet their learning needs in a secure, ordered and supportive school environment. Partnership with students, parents, staff and the wider community is considered central to the success of addressing bullying when it occurs in our school community.

  • Parents/Carers and Staff were interviewed and students surveyed on their understandings of bullying.
  • Results were analysed resulting in a plan being implemented.
  • This plan is reviewed annually.

Statement of purpose

Bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form.

Students and teachers have the right to expect that they will spend the school day free from bullying, harassment and intimidation.

Any inappropriate behaviour that gets in the way of teaching and learning at the school and interferes with the wellbeing of students will not be accepted.


Bullying is repeated verbal, physical, social, or psychological behaviour that is harmful and involves the misuse of power by an individual or group towards one or more people. Cyber bullying refers to bullying through information and communication technologies.

Bullying can involve humiliation, dominations, intimidation, victimisation, and all forms of harassment including that based on sex, race, disability, homosexuality or transgender. Bullying of any form or for any reason can have long-term effects on those involved including bystanders.

Conflict or fights between equals or single incidents may not amount to bullying.

Bullying Types

Schools exist in a society where incidents of bullying behaviour may occur. Preventing and responding to bullying behaviour in learning and working environments is a shared responsibility of all departmental staff, students, parents, caregivers and members of the wider school community.

All members of the school community contribute to the prevention of bullying by modelling and promoting appropriate behaviour and respectful relationships.
