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.
