Anti-bullying

 

At school we take bullying very seriously.

 

We all understand bullying to be:

Several

Times

On

Purpose

 

​If anyone is ever worried then they should tell an adult as soon as possible. 

 

 

 

 


The school council suggested that each class set up a 'worry box' so that children could share any worries.

 

Every class now has a worry box and staff review them every Tuesday, at the start of our their staff meeting. The school council have created this Pic Collage to promote their use.

 

Mrs. Burns is our senior teacher and anti-bullying leader.

Anti-bullying update: March 2018

 

We are always working to make our school a happier, safer place for all members of the school community.

 

This half term the following actions have been undertaken and are being reviewed by our staff and governors:

  • The Stonewall logo is now on our headed paper and website because, after recent training attended by Mrs Burns, we are a Stonewall Champions School. This means that we have are working with them to make our school a more caring and inclusive place.
  • An updated Anti-Bullying Policy is currently being ratified by staff and governors and will be on the website soon.
  • We already have children helping one another at lunchtimes through long established mini-leader and playground buddy schemes, but we are going to train peer mediators and have a formal peer to peer system for resolving low level conflict.
  • A ‘school script’ is being adopted to ensure that, if derogatory language is used, it will be dealt with consistently by whichever member of staff deals with it.
  • Positive language and kindness will be promoted through this half term’s value for collective worship and through a challenge issued by Mrs Burns during her collective worship. Hopefully you will notice that your child is making a real effort to use kind and positive language at home and in school.
