Anti-Bullying Policy and Anti-Bullying Charters for Pupils, Parents and Carers
Bullying is "behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally". A culture of anti-bullying is vital in schools, as bullying can have extremely negative effects on a child's health and wellbeing.
We deal with any incidents of bullying straight away, and make them stop. This includes involving parents/carers. If you are in any way concerned that your child or another may be subject to bullying, contact your child’s teacher immediately. We will take your concern seriously and work to resolve the problem in a considered way which protects the child.
