New Violence, Aggression and Anti-Social Behaviour Policy

Recent concerns have been raised to the Council regarding violence, aggression and anti-social behaviours within schools across the country. As a result and to support existing policy documented via HSP027 Schools Health and Safety Policy Manual, the Health and Safety Department has implemented a new violence, aggression and anti-social behaviour policy to assist with managing these issues within schools. Head teachers are advised to communicate the introduction of this policy to their staff.
