Anti-bullying

At our school we have a zero tolerance attitude to bullying and believe in our Christian values of Friendship and Forgiveness.  We know that sometimes we have disagreements with our friends, and when this happens it can be upsetting.  Remember, there are lots of things that you can do when this happens:

  • Talk to your friends and explain how you are feeling
  • Speak to the Wellbeing Team and ask them to help you have a conversation with your friends
  • Talk to an adult in school about how you are feeling

Bullying is more than just a falling out with friends, it is when someone is hurting and purposefully upsetting you one more than one occasion.  Think about the STOP rule for bullying: Several Times On Purpose. 

 If you think that bullying is happening to you or someone else, tell an adult immediately – we can’t help if we don’t know!  You can:

  • Talk to a teacher or another adult in school that you trust
  • Speak to the Wellbeing Team who will go with you to speak to an adult
  • Tell a friend and ask them to go to an adult with you to talk about what’s happening
  • Use the whisper button on the bottom of the website page to send a message to Miss Brimble
  • Go and find Miss Slingsby and speak to her

Remember:

  • Don’t try and ignore it – bullying is never ok and needs dealing with
  • Telling someone won’t make it worse – when adults know, they will be able to help
  • It’s not your fault – there are lots of reasons that people behave in unkind ways, and it isn’t because you have done something wrong
