Your Child and School

When dealing with bullying, schools follow procedures as outlined in their school policy. If necessary they will sometimes involve the School Community Police Officer (SCPO) who can provide support using restorative practices to help resolve the conflict.

Officers using restorative practice in the safe school environment are able to bring together both victims of incidents and the wrong doers. This may include the parents of the children involved and staff at the school, to resolve the problems and ensure the harm that has been caused is put right.
