Creating safer school communities
Every year in Queensland, around 150 people—mostly parents—are excluded from school grounds for threatening behaviour towards school staff.
Teachers, school leaders and support staff have the esteemed role of educating and caring for students and should not need to deal with verbal or physical abuse as part of that job.
To stamp out abusive and violent behaviour towards school staff, the Queensland Government has launched the Respect our staff, respect our school campaign that aims to create safer school communities in Queensland.
We all have a role to play in making learning and working environments safe for all students and educators, and everyone deserves to be treated with respect.
