Bullying is when a person or a group deliberately tends to cause someone else to feel hurt, distressed, threatened or humiliated.


Bullying is not acceptable:

  • We want everyone at the Academy to feel safe and secure.
  • We believe no one should be bullied in any way.
  • Verbal abuse of another pupil is bullying.
  • A physical attack on a pupil is bullying.
  • We must all make sure bullies never win.


If you, or someone you know, is being bullied:


  • Watching and doing nothing supports the bully.
  • Tell a member of staff or a member of your family immediately.


You cannot deal with a bully by yourself:

  • Talk to a teacher, your tutor, your Head of Year, your parents or a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
  • Do not give in to demands for money, sweets or anything else.
  • Do not try to buy the bully off with sweets or other presents.


Together we CAN and WILL stop bullying.
