Bearbrook Combined School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust




We expect children to act safely and feel safe in school, and this includes a clear understanding of the definition of bullying, the issues relating to bullying and the confidence to seek support from adults should they feel unsafe. We also want parents to feel confident that their children are safe and cared for in school and incidents when they do arise are dealt with promptly and well.


Bullying is wrong and can cause lasting damage. We therefore do all we can to prevent it, by developing a school ethos in which bullying is regarded as unacceptable.


Bullying is not the “victim’s” problem or the “perpetrator’s” problem It is everyone’s problem


Through sharing responsibility and raising awareness we actively challenge bullying. This policy outlines a consistent school response to any bullying incidents that may occur. We aim to make all those connected with the school aware of our opposition to bullying, and we make clear each person’s responsibilities with regard to the eradication of bullying in our school. School must be an environment where all can learn without anxiety.
