Education Queensland does not tolerate bullying in any form, and schools use a range of proactive strategies to deal with bullying behaviour.

All students and parents are encouraged to raise concerns they have with their school principal immediately so that action can be taken to address the problem.

Every state school includes strategies for addressing bullying, including cyber bullying, in its Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students.

Several initiatives have been implemented recently to address bullying in schools.

The Queensland Schools Alliance Against Violence (QSAAV) was responsible for providing advice to the Minister on best practice measures to address bullying and violence in Queensland schools. The Alliance was chaired by Professor Ian O'Connor and included representatives from State and non-State schooling sectors, parent groups, principals associations, unions and the Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian.
