Responding to Violent Incidents
There have been a number of instances where teachers have reported student aggression – either verbal or physical. It is important for all teachers to know their rights and responsibilities in such situations.
Attached to this Eastern Update is the Violent Incident Protocol – we ask staff reps to ensure all staff members are aware of this protocol. It is important for members to document any case of violence or aggression – complete the incident report form, give it to you principal and send a copy to the Unit Office.
If you have any questions about the Protocol or any concerns – contact the unit office.
