Anti-Bullying Work







   

At Wyton on the Hill Primary School, we work hard to ensure our children understand why bullying is unacceptable and we always investigate allegations of bullying sensitively.

Our approach to anti-bullying is integral to our whole approach to behaviour management, which encourages our children to be kind, caring, supportive and tolerant and to value each other as individuals. In 2013-14, we introduced a programme of Peer Mediation, in which pupils are trained to act as mediators in a dispute without help from teachers. This empowers children and develops their sense of community and co-operation. The school and classroom become more peaceful, allowing more teaching and learning to take place. For more information, please visit our Peer Mediation page.
 
 

Our agreed definition of bullying is as follows:
Bullying is a deliberate, conscious attempt to hurt, threaten or frighten someone else, repeated over a period of time. It can be long or short term. It can be physical, verbal or even just a look. It does not include occasional fighting or falling out between friends or equals.

The way we all remember that bullying is 'deliberate', 'repeated over a period of time' and that it must be stopped is through the word STOP...

Our Anti-Bullying Policy is reviewed every year with the children every November. By taking part in activities around National Anti-Bullying Week and then throughout the year, we ensure that the whole school community is reminded about:

  • what bullying is (and what it is not)
  • what types of bullying there are
  • what to do if any of us are being bullied
  • what to do if we see anyone being bullied and
  • what will be done at school if any bullying happens.

We are currently working on a 'Family Guide to Anti-Bullying' which will go out to all families.

Please see our Anti-bullying Policy and our latest Anti-bullying Big Conversation for more detail about our approach to Anti-bullying.
