Content analysis of school anti-bullying policies: a comparison between New Zealand and Victoria, Australia

Marsh, Louise, McGee, Rob, Hemphill Sheryl, A., Williams, Sheila,

Academic Literature

2011

This article seeks to undertake a detailed analysis of the content of anti-bullying policies in schools in New Zealand (NZ) and Victoria, Australia. In both regions, definitions rarely included bullying on the grounds of homophobia, religion or disability; or bullying between adults and students. Policies also lacked detail about the responsibilities of non-teaching staff in dealing with bullying, and rarely described follow-up after a bullying incident.
