We are a school of friendly and welcoming pupils, families and staff. We will not accept bullying in any form and work actively with our families to help them appreciate diversity and equality.
Where incidents of bullying arise, they are taken seriously and dealt with immediately. Our focus is on restorative practice, helping all members of the community resolve differences through building positive relationships.

It takes many forms and can include:
- physical assault
- making threats
- name calling
- cyberbullying - bullying via mobile phone or online (for example email, social networks and instant messenger)
