Anti-Bullying

Principles and Values

As a school we take bullying extremely seriously. Pupils and parents should be assured that they will be supported when bullying is reported. Bullying will not be tolerated. The school will seek ways to counter the effects of bullying that may occur within school or in the local community. The ethos of our school fosters high expectations of outstanding behaviour and we will challenge any behaviour that falls below this.

Objectives of this Policy

  • All governors, teaching and non-teaching staff, pupils and parents should have an understanding of what bullying is;
  • All governors and teaching and non-teaching staff should know what the school policy is on bullying, and follow it when bullying is reported;
  • All pupils and parents should know what the school policy is on bullying, and what they should do if bullying arises;

All of us have encountered bullying at some point in our lives, but we all deal with it differently. The aim of this policy is to work together to ensure that school is a safe place for children and adults to be, whether the school community is directly or indirectly affected by bullying or not.
