“Continual emotional distress can create deficits in a child’s intellectual abilities, crippling the capacity to learn.”
___(strategies to prevent)_______\_____
School Leads- (one per school)
To lead and adult committee and a student committee per campus
However, further studies showed that teachers only intervene 5% of the time.
This huge disparity shows that bullying goes far beyond the behaviours that adults see.
They are afraid to be called a `tattle tale`
“On the Spot Intervention”
“At this school we don’t treat people like that; you will be tracked.”
This in itself is an intervention and works well to prevent future hurtful behaviours from occurring
If this incident requires further intervention please indicate below:
The student needs to be made aware that they will be tracked
Tracking forms are passed in to one person in the school- typically an administrator
Not all students tracked need to be seen for their behaviour
The purpose of the tracking forms is to determine patterns of behaviour
The forms are not called “Bullying Forms”

17. Use your adult committee for support
a parent reports that their child is being bullied but you have not seen anything?
