In Glengowan Primary School we encourage an open approach to anti-bullying strategies, involving pupils, staff and parents.
Any incidents of bullying should be reported to a member of staff. Following a discussion with the children involved, an appropriate consequence may be applied. The emphasis will be on resolving matters in a positive manner, focussing on how those involved have been affected and on building relationships based on mutual respect. More serious or repeated incidents should be reported to a member of the SLT. The SLT may decide to contact parents regarding incidents of bullying and it may be necessary to convene a meeting with the Head Teacher.
It is important that incidents of bullying are reported. Children can speak directly to any member of staff. Parents may also contact the school to report any concerns.
