Bullying Prevention at School

 

Teachers play a key role in fostering healthy relationships and promoting a safe positive school environment. Learn about Halton Region's resources for creating safe positive environments for students.

Teachers and school staff play a key role in supporting healthy relationships and promoting a safe positive school environment. When teachers promote healthy relationships where students feel accepted and experience a sense of belonging, bullying can be prevented. Providing curriculum supports, supportive social and physical environments, and resources for students can promote healthy relationships and reduce the number of bullying incidences. Halton Region provides teachers/school staff with the following resources to help create safe, positive environments for students.
