Together, we can do it!
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 – PeopleIt 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.
