POLICIES AND REPORTS

GEELONG GRAMMAR SCHOOL PASTORAL PRINCIPLES

Rules

We maintain our guiding values and standards when individuals respect the school community and the community respects them.

The School will respond to any actions and events that harm individuals and/or the school community. This includes any action or event that:

• harms an individual (with words or deeds);
• damages property;
• introduces destructive products into the school community; 
• and/or in other ways undermines trust in the school community.

Processes

The School will balance transparency and confidentiality in its formal responses to harmful actions or events. The School employs several processes to respond to harm. These responses have in common that they;

• deal with each situation in its context;
• seek a constructive and positive resolution within that context;
• involve those affected (Stakeholders), as far as possible, in reaching resolution.
