We will use our behaviour policy effectively to promote good behaviour so that there is an ethos where bullying is unacceptable.
All will be expected to be vigilant and to intervene immediately and effectively if any bullying is observed or reported.
Learners will be encouraged to report bullying and when they do so they will be listened to and taken seriously.
Every allegation of bullying will be investigated and followed up.
Any victim of bullying will be well-protected.
Any allegations of bullying will be reported to the headteacher.
PSHE and circle time will be used to discuss bullying and to ensure that all are aware that bullying is never acceptable and that the victim must always report it to parents, staff or friends.
We will use the school’s discipline and rewards strategy to reinforce this anti-bullying policy.
Learners and their parents will be made aware of this policy.
The parents of all concerned will be informed and involved in any reported incident and will be expected to support this school policy.
