Please see the Home School Agreement  and our ‘Reach for the Stars’ (pupil code of conduct), plus our information on e-safety for further guidance.


Bullying outside of school:

Bullying outside of schools hours is equally unacceptable. Incidences of bullying that occur outside of school hours that impact upon the welfare and wellbeing of our pupils during school hours will, with the support of the school, need to be addressed by parents.

 

The following websites offer advice on how parents can address bullying outside of school hours:

www.bullying.co.uk

If the bullying cannot be resolved by the parent, then the school will with the permission of all parties and in in accordance with the Data Protection Act, forward contacts details so parents of the perpetrator and the victim can communicate to stop the behaviour.

If unacceptable behaviour outside of school cannot be addressed, or starts to impact on the child within school, and the matter cannot be resolved through effective adult parental communication, then the school will inform the Police and Social Services.
