At Christ Church C of E Primary School we believe that all pupils have the right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without fear of bullying or harassment. Through our Christian Values, our school community embraces individuality and celebrates those qualities that make us all unique.
The Government define bullying as 'emotionally or physically harmful behaviour and includes: name-calling; taunting; mocking; making offensive comments; kicking; hitting; pushing; taking belongings; inappropriate text messaging and emailing; sending offensive or degrading images by phone or via the internet; gossiping; excluding people from groups and spreading hurtful and untruthful rumours.'
Children at Christ Church believe strongly that bullying should not happen. The children on the safe squad have been working with all children in the school to develop a "child friendly" anti-bullying policy as well as other activities in the hope of making our school a safer place to be. Each year we do lots of work throughout school focused on anti-bullying which includes: what bullying is; how to approach bullying; anti-bullying week; and cyber-bullying.
Bullying is not tolerated at our school and we have a clear policy on how to prevent, identify and respond to bullying behaviour. On this page, you can find our policy on anti-bullying and our child-friendly policy. There are also websites which offer other resources and materials related to anti-bullying. If you have any concerns about bullying, do not hesitate to contact us.
