Skagerak International School, has a “zero tolerance” policy towards bullying. At Skagerak, bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behaviour among people that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behaviour is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumours, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
Skagerak International School encourages everyone to be self-confident and caring towards each other, to help others who are not being treated fairly or find people to help. Our curriculum embodies the mission statement for the IBO which states:
‘The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.’
