Overview FAQs Articles Locations

At Navado we have assisted student and parents in relation to bullying matters.Your child spends a significant amount of time at school, and if you feel your child is not safe, you may have grounds for a bullying claim.

The school have a duty of care to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety and protection of your child. A failure to take action to prevent or otherwise respond to an allegation of bullying, may result in a breach of the duty of care, particularly where:

  • The school has failed to investigate the allegations;
  • The school has systematic failures to protect their students;
  • The student has been injured to a grievous extent.

At Navado, we encourage you to contact us if you have concerns about your child being bullied. If you haven’t yet approached the school, we would encourage you to seek our advice as to the best way forward.

If you have approached the school, and you feel that the school has not suitably responded and/or the bullying persists, we encourage you to approach us to discuss further avenues that may be available to you. Due to our experience in Education & Schools Law, we can assist you in pursuing your grievance further.

Bullying often coincides with other areas of the law including Defamation, Personal Injury and Compliance matters. Our team has experience in advising on and representing clients in each of these co-related areas, to provide you with a comprehensive legal service.

If you require assistance with your Education & Schools Law matter, we recommend you contact our office and arrange an appointment to see one of our Education & Schools Law Solicitors in our Sydney office. By appointment, we can also arrange a time for you to see one of our lawyers at a branch office. For a complete listing please see our "Locations" tab.
