Secure School Environment Policy – 2016
Staff and students have a basic right to work and study in a school free from any harassment or bullying. Woodleigh Campus is committed to providing such an environment.
What Is Harassment?
Harassment is the deliberate desire to hurt, intimidate or threaten another. It may take many forms.
- Physical – e.g. pushing, shoving, fighting, invasion of personal space.
- Verbal – e.g. name calling, offensive language, discrimination, “put downs” based on race, gender, physical appearance, sexual orientation or religious creed.
- Visual – e.g. offensive notes and gestures, graffiti.
- Victimisation – e.g. stand over tactics, exclusion.
- Sexual – e.g. any unwelcome sexual behaviour including offensive jokes, language or pictures.
- Electronic – e.g. offensive or intimidating emails, offensive photos published on the Web / social network sites, or via text messaging, filming.
How Can We Stop Harassment?
- We can conduct ourselves so that we do not provoke others to respond in an unacceptable manner.
- We can work to resolve disputes with others in a peaceful way.
- If we see harassment we can refuse to join in.
- We can support any students who are harassed. For example, we might intervene if it is safe, we might assist them if we are able to, and we can report it to staff.
- If we are harassed, we can tell the person that what they are doing is harassment. We can stand up for ourselves if anyone tries to harass us by:
- telling them to stop
- ignoring them (in the very short term)
- saying ‘no’
- asking a staff member for support
- drawing the attention of others (students and staff) to the harassing behaviour
Asking a Staff Member for support
For advice talk to one of the following:
- Your Tutor
- Your Teacher
- Your Homestead Coordinator
- The Student Counsellors – Sophie Lea, Dianne Summers
- The Deputy Head of Campus, Student Wellbeing – Tracey Glen
- The Head of Woodleigh Campus – David Burton
- The Principal – Jonathan Walter
Our Response To Bullying and Harassment
If a matter is reported to Senior Staff it will then be discretely investigated and if necessary some of the following approaches used:
- self help
- therapeutic solutions
- restorative practice session attended by both parties
- parent contact
- referral to Support Group for ongoing case management
- withdrawal from Homestead or classes – ‘in school’ suspension
Most harassment that occurs is not complained about and therefore remains hidden. Those who are harassed often don’t complain because they fear it will make things worse or that no one will take them seriously, even if they do complain. We know, however, that harassment thrives in an atmosphere where it is hidden and not discussed. When we are willing to acknowledge the problem it can be dealt with. We take a ‘shared concern’, non-punitive approach where everyone involved has a responsibility to help solve the problem.

When does my booklist order need to be finalised?
The closing date for timely School Collection is Friday 30 November 2018. Booklists do not close until the next year’s list is finalised.
What is the final date I can make an order?
The booklists will not close until the next year’s list is finalised, however, for timely School Collection, orders must be placed by Friday 30 November 2018.
When can I collect my booklist order?
The Booklist orders will be available for pick up on:
- Monday 21 January: 12.00–4.00pm
- Tuesday 22 January: 9.00am–1.00pm
The collection point will be the Senior Campus Hall. Follow the signage and the ‘cones’.
I can’t make it on the Collection Day. What will happen to my order?
The school will hold any orders that are not picked up, and they can be collected in the days following. Any discrepancies in your order will have to be followed up with Campion direct. We do advise you to attend the Collection Days for this reason.
What will I need to bring when I collect my booklist order?
A copy of your order confirmation (digital is fine) and pen.
Where is the booklist order pick-up point?
Campion will set up their collection point in the Senior Campus Hall on Monday 21 January 12.00–4.00pm, and Tuesday 22 January 9.00am–1.00pm. Follow the signage and the ‘cones’.
What will happen at the pick-up point?
Once you give Campion the names of your child/ren they will bring your order/s and request that you check it carefully. Please do so. If there is anything missing, please let the Campion staff know.
What is the School Code?
If the Campion website asks for a School Code enter “CUUY”.
My student is new and we don’t know which language they are doing yet. What should I do?
The School will let you know in due course. Ensure that you make a Campion account. Complete all other aspects of your booklist order, and save. Then login again once you know which subject is the correct one.
Do I have to make an account?
It is recommended that you make an account so that you can return to your order at any time.
The website is not working for me. Who can I speak to?
If you have questions about the booklist website, please search the FAQs on the Campion website https://www.campion.com.au/support-help/support-for-parents/#1473316223066-7c73d9d3-f2a0 or phone Campion on 1300 433 982.
For queries about texts you can contact Campion (as above) or the School (5971 6100).
Why are there so many digital texts?
Woodleigh is committed to reducing the use of paper where possible. In addition, there are many excellent digital teaching and revision providers that the faculties have tested, evaluated and chosen to support the wide range of learning styles and levels.
Which digital texts do I need?
Compulsory digital subscriptions are clearly labelled as such on the booklist. They must be purchased via the booklist.
Either/Or texts: There are some subjects where a “print+digital” text and a digital “reactivation code” are listed. The “reactivation code” is ONLY needed if you have a secondhand copy of the print text.
Do I have to buy all the stationery?
Some subjects have specific requirements, and these will be listed under the Subject Heading. All other stationery is Optional.
When is the Secondhand Book Sale?
There is no Book Sale this year. Because there are so many digital texts, a Book Sale is not viable. Sustainable School Shop is a good source for buying and selling secondhand books. Please check the booklist carefully before purchasing, and seek clarification from Campion or the School if necessary.
I’ve missed the deadline! What can I do?
The booklist stays open until Term 1 2019. Just place a Late Order via the website, and contact Campion to arrange collection from their warehouse. Campion website https://www.campion.com.au/support-help/support-for-parents/#1473316223066-7c73d9d3-f2a0 or phone on 1300 433 982.
What are “School Charges”?
When you complete your order there will be two sub-totals added up at the bottom. “School Charges” is the sub-total for subscriptions (Education Perfect, Stile and/or Edrolo) which are being collected by Campion on the school’s behalf. The other sub-total is for Texts and Stationery.
