Prevention of bullying
Our ethos emphasises the 3C's of courage, confidence and commitment. Part of this means we are respectful to everyone. We do not tolerate, encourage or engage in any bullying, whether this student to student or staff member to staff member.
It is important for us that everyone can work and learn in a safe and secure environment. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable in our Academy.
We do not tolerate any form of sexual harassment or sexual violence. Our personal, relationships, social and health education (PRSHE) policy and curriculum outlines how we educate students on staying safe, healthy and ready for life in modern Britain. This also includes a wide range of ways for students to develop and foster healthy relationships. To access this in more detail please click here.
When any member of staff suspects any bullying behaviour then they must act. We also expect students to support each other so:
Is another student making you unhappy/ feel bullied?
Is someone else being bullied/mistreated by someone?
If so, we do not turn a blind eye, be a bystander or provide an audience for a bully.
It is really important that everyone takes action immediately. Do not ignore it and hope that it will go away.
Speak to a member of staff and tell them what is happening. Put a note in the suggestion box and a member of staff will make contact with you. Speak to someone at home who can then tell a member of staff. Log your concern using this link: email@example.com
