Together, we can do it!

Anti-Bullying

 

Bullying is one of the biggest concerns for parents, if you find out or suspect your child is being bullied, there are things you can do to resolve the problem. 

 

The most important thing you can do to prevent bullying is to encourage your child to look out for themselves and each other by using: 

S – Start 

T – Telling 

O – Other 

P – People 

It is important that children know the difference between bullying and a fallout or single incident. You can help your child to understand this by using:

S – Several  

T – Times 

O – On  

P – Purpose 

 

Talk to your child’s class teacher about your concerns. 

 

Mr Taylor (our Behaviour Mentor) is usually available to talk to without an appointment. He will carry out a full investigation of your concerns and will often offer conflict resolution between both parties.  

 

Alternatively, make an appointment to see Mrs Badge, Mrs Lee or Mr Khunti. 

 Your Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (ABAs)

This year we have two Anti-bullying Ambassadors (ABAs) in every class in years 3, 4 and 5.
You can easily identify them with their ABA badges, which they wear at every playtime and lunchtime in the playground.

Pupil Leadership Team 

 

This year, the two Pupil Leadership Team members in each class are able to talk to your child about anti-bullying. 

You can easily identify them with their PLT badges, which they wear at every playtime and lunchtime in the playground.
