Anti-Bullying

Anti-Bullying

Bullying is action taken by one or more children with the deliberate intention of hurting another child, either physically or emotionally. Bullying is wrong and damages individual children. We therefore do all we can to prevent it, by developing a school ethos in which bullying is regarded as unacceptable.

We are proud to be supporting Anti-Bullying Week this year and are going to use the opportunity to further emphasise the key message to children- ‘Stop and think- words can hurt’.  Please take a moment to read the documents below from the Anti-Bullying Alliance, which give some great advice and guidance about how to tackle bullying. If you have any worries or concerns about your child please contact a member of school staff who will be more than happy to help.

“Outstanding provision of care, guidance and support enables pupils to make good progress. Pupils say that they feel very well cared for in school because of the trusting relationships they share. Parents overwhelmingly endorse that view. Care and support for those who may be potentially most vulnerable is exceptional.”
(Ofsted, June 2011)

“Pupils are polite, well-mannered and behave well around the school. They say that they feel safe in school and show good awareness of potentially dangerous situations including those linked to use of the internet. They strongly oppose bullying and racist incidents both of which are very rare.”
(Ofsted, June 2011)

“Mechanisms to foster peer support is a strength of the school.  The school uses Peer Mediators very effectively where a number of children have been trained to help resolve conflict and friendship problems. Pupil comment: “The peer mediators’ help you become friends if you fall out”.”
(IQM Report, June 2011)
