What is Bullying?
Bullying is saying or doing something, more than once, to deliberately hurt or upset someone else. It can be physical, verbal or indirect (spreading rumours, excluding you, or posting information about you online).
Racism is treating someone differently or unfairly simply because they belong to a different race or culture.
Homophobic bullying is hurting or upsetting someone because they are gay, or called gay.
Cyber-bullying is when a person uses a computer or mobile phone to hurt another person. Look in your planner for advice on how to stay safe online.
How can I get help?
There are lots of different people at school that you can talk to including your Form Tutor, Head of Year or any member of staff you feel comfortable talking with. If you are feeling upset and you would like help straight away, visit the Pastoral Office (next to Main Reception) or the Learning Support Centre (top floor of St John's).
We will listen to any concerns you have and then together decide the best way to resolve them. We will discuss any actions with you first before doing anything to help.
