Social and emotional factors
Experiencing bullying behaviour
If your child has experienced bullying behaviour, this may include: being called names, teased, put down or threatened; being hit or hurt in some way; having belongings taken or damaged; being left out; online abuse and more.
Your child may be experiencing a change such as the death of someone close, family separation, divorce, or natural disaster. Your child can receive support from staff, which may last for a short time or for a longer period.
Social and emotional behavioural needs
Your child may display disruptive behaviour (low-level, serious or violent), and will require additional support to develop positive behaviour in school and possibly to stop offending in the community.
Many people may believe that those who bully others must be punished. Restorative approaches are built on values which separate the person from the behaviour. They promote accountability and seek to repair any harm caused in a situation.
