Safety & care

Safety

Other than social competencies, the four main factors influencing how safe students are in a school are as follows.

Care

In many countries, the Principal and teachers are, by law, considered defacto responsible parents. They have a duty of care, obliging them to be alert to the well-being of each student.

The responsiveness and demeanour of school adults communicates to students how much they are cared for at school.

The perception of care will be evident from an analysis of the annual student opinion survey.
