Leaders International Christian School has a positive approach to all behavior and bullying incidents. Forgiveness is at the center of our faith and means that everyone is given the opportunity to make a fresh start.
“The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…” (Galatians 5:22-23)
All bullying behavior is unacceptable, regardless of who bullies or how it is delivered, or what reasons justify bullying actions. We recognize the detrimental effect on anyone who may be subjected to bullying and will work actively to minimize bullying risks. Victims of bullying will be treated in a supportive manner, and their support will not be regarded as a burden to staff and peer groups. We understand that bullying may harm educational performance. We are committed to contesting all bullying behavior and, when necessary, will work in partnership with any relevant agencies. We recognize that bullies may also need ongoing support to change their behavior.
