The aim of these guidelines is to augment the School Communities Working Together online awareness module and provide practical guidance to NSW independent school executive team members on how to manage anti-social and extremist behaviour.
These guidelines have been developed specifically for executive staff in NSW independent schools. The other NSW education sectors also have their own specific guidelines for managing anti-social and extremist behaviour in their schools.
Both the online module and the Guidelines reinforce the focus that schools are safe places which support students and the wider community. There are already many good practices, policies and processes to support vulnerable students in NSW independent schools. This awareness package is not meant to replace these, rather it is designed to complement and augment existing practices, policies and processes in your school.
For further information or advice about the School Communities Working Together awareness package, or other support to counter anti-social and extremist behaviour, please contact Robyn Yates, Chief Policy and Compliance Officer
