We take bullying of any sort very serious and will deal with it immediately. Our Anti Bullying week helps children to identify whether bullying is happening and how to report it and stop it.
Each year in November there is a National anti-bullying week and during this time we also have a focus on how we can all play a part in putting a stop to bullying in our school. We do this through assemblies, PSHE lessons and other activities.
In 2020 the theme is "United Against Bullying" and seeks to help children understand that being a bystander is not ok, to stop bullying we must stand up against it together.
