Anti Bullying Charter

1. We will do all we can to prevent bullying from taking place and will not allow it to happen without doing something about it.

2. Bullying will always be dealt with very seriously.

3. When we report bullying to teachers we will be listened to and helped.

4. Everyone in school has a right to feel comfortable and secure at all times without being afraid of bullies.

5. We will not “put others down”, or do anything which is deliberately hurtful.

6. We will not judge others by their appearance alone.

7. We will accept everyone as an equal regardless of their sex, race, religion, culture or disability.

8. We are a “telling” school – bullying is far too important not to report it.

9. We are all part of a caring and sharing community and all have a part to play in creating and maintaining it.

10. We are not alone and when we act together we can always stamp out this unacceptable behaviour and ensure bullies are dealt with properly and promptly.
