Bullying

 

Bullying is when a person or a group deliberately tends to cause someone else to feel hurt, distressed, threatened or humiliated.

 

Bullying is not acceptable:

 

  • We want everyone at the Academy to feel safe and secure.
  • We believe no one should be bullied in any way.
  • Verbal abuse of another pupil is bullying.
  • A physical attack on a pupil is bullying.
  • Sending abusive or threatening messages by text or on social media is bullying
  • We must all make sure bullies never win.

 

If you or someone you know is being bullied:

TAKE ACTION

  • Students should tell a member of staff or a member of their family immediately.
  • Watching and doing nothing supports the bully.

 

Bullying cannot be dealt with alone.

  • Students should talk to a teacher, their tutor, their Head of Year, their parents or one of the Senior Leadership Team.
  • Students must not give in to demands for money, sweets or anything else.
  • Students must not try to buy the bully off with sweets or other presents.

Together we can and will stop bullying.
