Anti Bullying

We, along with The Anti-Bullying Alliance, define bullying as:

“The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace.”

Also, as a Gold Rights Respecting school, we recognise:

Article 28: The right for every child to have a good quality education.

Article 19: All children have the right to be protected from danger.

Article 2: Every child has the right to be treated equally and with respect.

Article 31: Every child has the right to play in a safe environment.

This year, the theme for Anti-Bullying Week was “Make A Noise About Bullying”. We are making a noise to help us to stop bullying and raise awareness of how we can identify and report bullying behaviour.

Bullying is behaviour that hurts someone else – such as name calling, hitting, pushing, spreading rumours, threatening or undermining someone.
It can happen anywhere – at school, at home or online. It’s usually repeated over a long period of time and can hurt you both physically and emotionally.

Bullying that happens online, using social networks and mobile phones, is often called cyberbullying. A child can feel like there’s no escape because it can happen wherever they are, at any time of day or night.


We would like to encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers please click the text below.

We also suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should be on Facebook, if they are then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe.
