“Tackling Bullying in Renfrewshire” is the authority’s policy on preventing and dealing with bullying in our school. The policy stresses the importance of involving the whole school community – pupils, parents and all the staff in the school.
You can view the anti-bullying policy by asking the school office for a copy of the document or by accessing the policy online at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk.
In West Primary School we take bullying very seriously and always tackle the problem promptly. Bullying is an unacceptable form of behaviour through which an individual or groups of individuals feel threatened, abused, or undermined by another individual. Bullying is behaviour which can be defined as a repeated attack of a physical, psychological, social or verbal nature by those who are able to exert influence over others.
We actively encourage positive behaviour using reward and incentive strategies and have watchful adults in the playground when the children are playing.
We believe in early parental involvement and welcome the support of parents at every opportunity.
It is most important to us that all children in West Primary School receive their education in a safe environment free from harassment. Please feel free to contact the school if there are any matters that are causing you or your child concern or if you have any comments or opinions on bullying.
