What Is Bullying?
Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally (DfE Preventing and Tackling Bullying 2011).
All students have the right to feel safe and happy at school. Any form of bullying, online abuse or sexual harassment are unacceptable. Students, whether you are witnesses to something or the victim of it, can and should report instances to us to allow us to support and help. Use this form to report any instances of bullying, online abuse or sexual harassment.

How to report bullying, online abuse or sexual harassment
Please make sure you fill in your name, tutor group, and your email address if you have one so that you can be contacted. It is important to explain who is being bullied, and tell us what has happened, and what you have seen NOT what you thought happened. It would also be helpful if you could provide a list of the people involved, and who witnessed it. Each case will be individually investigated and appropriate action taken. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect. We can achieve this together.
These emails are private emails and will be read and acted upon. Sometimes this might not be obvious at first, but no email will be ignored.
Statement of Intent
We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our students so that they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our school. If bullying does occur, all students should be able to confide in an adult and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. Anyone who suspects that bullying is happening is expected to inform a member of staff.
