Anti-bullying School

Bullying in School

Bullying is a breach of children’s rights and they need to be protected from bullying behaviour. In Broomhill Primary, we are committed to working in partnership with pupils, families and the community to challenge, address and eradicate bullying.

What is bullying?

Bullying is both behaviour and impact. The impact is on a person’s capacity to feel in control of    themselves. Bullying takes place in the context of relationships; it is behaviour that can make people feel hurt, threatened, frightened and left out. This behaviour happens face to face and online.

How we deal with bullying

Our school has an Anti-bullying Policy and Anti-bullying Charter.  This states the general strategies and procedures in place within our school and outlines the action taken to combat bullying.

What we will do if your child is involved in a bullying incident

If we are satisfied a bullying incident has taken place, we will inform the parents/carers of all children involved. We will work with parents/carers to decide the best ways for both school and family to support the children concerned. Incidents of bullying are recorded, monitored and reviewed in line with local authority requirements

What you should do if you think your child is being bullied

Contact the school and arrange to speak to/meet one of our deputes or the headteacher. The outcome of this meeting should be mutual agreement of what investigation or action is required.

What you should do if you feel nothing is being done

Contact the headteacher or one of our deputes to discuss your concerns. If you are still not happy you can raise this with our Quality Improvement Officer.
