The Queensland Government has launched a new Safe and Respectful School Communities Campaign to prevent occupational violence and aggression in schools.
Education Minister Grace Grace said the campaign aims to raise awareness that anti-social behaviour and aggression towards school staff is not acceptable.
“The Queensland government has a zero-tolerance stance on violence in our schools,” Minister Grace said.
“Through their school’s Code of Conduct, students know what behaviour is acceptable at school. So, it should follow that parents and carers, or other people entering our schools also behave in a respectful manner.
“Schools are not only learning places – they are also workplaces. And just like any other workplace, our staff have every right to be safe at work and be treated with respect.
“The new campaign’s tagline is ‘your child, our student, one team’, and this sums up the message we want to get across. Everyone has a role to play.
“The Strategy is not only looking at how we can better connect our staff with the support they need, but how we can build a culture within our schools to prevent this kind of behaviour to begin with.”
The campaign has been developed in consultation with key stakeholders. Schools across the state will receive a range of materials to distribute and display around the school to share the message.
