Anti-Bullying Policy

Students’ Version



We have an anti-bullying policy in our school.  This means we do not want to have bullying here.  We want our school to be a safe place, where everyone feels welcome and happy.  All staff members encourage everyone to be nice to one another, to share, to listen and to help anyone who needs help.


We want to:

Make sure everyone knows about bullying and that we don’t like this behaviour

Have a school where people tell an adult if anyone hurts them in any way or makes them feel uncomfortable or sad.

Make sure that anyone who is unkind to others learns not to do this again.


What is Bullying?

Bullying is repeated aggressive or hurtful behaviour against an individual or group of students.  It is something that is repeated a number of times and makes people very unhappy.


There are different types of bullying behaviour:

Verbal – when we slag or tease others and use words to hurt their feelings

Physical – when we punch or kick or hurt someone physically

Non-verbal – when we don’t speak but use hand or finger actions to frighten someone.

Exclusion – when we won’t let someone join in our games and activities.

Extortion – when we make people give us their things

E-bullying – using text messages to frighten or upset someone.


What should we do if we are bullied or see someone else being bullied?

  • We should always tell an adult.  We are a “telling school” where everyone is asked to tell an adult if you are hurt or unhappy.
  • If you are on your own, you should try to get out of the situation and get help.
  • You should tell the bully to STOP.


What will the adults do?

  • They will talk with the bully and explain why his/her behaviour is wrong
  • They will listen to you and try to help you
  • They will keep an eye out for any more bad behaviour
  • They may bring in parents to discuss this with them
  • The bully may be in serious trouble for their behaviour


What can all the students do?

  • Tell an adult if you see bad behaviour
  • Help your friends to tell an adult
  • Invite others to join in your activities – don’t leave anyone out
  • Don’t be a bully yourself.


How can we make this an anti-bullying school?

We can all help by joining in class activities and area lessons about bullying.  We can look for one another and be a good friend to our classmates.  We can try to treat other people the way we would like them to treat us.  If we speak nicely, listen to one another, share with others and welcome people to join our games, we can all get along really well in our school.
