We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our school. If bullying occurs, all pupils should be able to tell and know that the incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a telling school. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the staff.

What is bullying?

Bullying is the term used to describe a wide range of acts of repeated aggression or unkind behaviour committed by one person or group against another individual or group. It includes taunting, threatening, pushing, pulling clothes, hitting or kicking, stealing or damaging property, and demanding favours or money. It can take place via the internet or by mobile threats by text messaging and calls. Bullying can also take the form of constantly ignoring and excluding from social groups both within the class and outside.

The School's attitude to bullying

We believe all pupils and adults have the right to be safe and happy at school. It is our aim to provide children with sufficient protection to enable them to feel safe at all times.
