Positive Student Behaviour and Anti-Bullying

Positive Student Behaviour and Anti-Bullying

Under the Education (Welfare) Act, 2000 all schools are required to have in place a code of behaviour. The Act requires that this code must be prepared in accordance with guidelines issued by the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB).

This Act and the NEWB guidelines also requires schools to have an anti-bullying policy within the framework of their overall code of behaviour. This policy must adhere to the Anti-Bullying Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary Schools, 2013. Link here to DES circular on Procedures.
