The report of the latest Australian Principal Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing Survey makes very interesting reading – and notes the disgraceful situations of principals being punched, kicked, headbutted, bitten, spat at, stabbed with scissors or pencils and having school furniture flung at them.
The survey has run nationally every year since 2011 in response to growing concern about principals’ occupational health, safety and wellbeing. Since the project began, approximately 50% of Australia’s 10,000 principals have taken part. Many have completed multiple surveys.
