At Caedmon Primary School, bullying is treated with zero tolerance. Wherever it occurs and whosoever is involved, we consider it to be totally unacceptable. Victims of bullying experience real distress and if the bullying is severe or prolonged, the effects can be devastating. It also damages individuals who bully and can damage those who witness it.
We have an absolute commitment to the well-being of children and young people.
Caedmon’s Definition of Bullying
Bullying is when a person or a group of people are deliberately unkind to another person over a period of time.
Caedmon’s Anti-Bullying Steps
If you think you are being bullied;
- Find the nearest adult and tell them.
- The adult will talk to everybody involved. If they find it is a bullying incident, they will tell the Headteacher (HT), Deputy Headteacher (DHT) or Assistant Headteacher (AHT) or Phase Leader (PL).
- HT, DHT, AHT or PL will speak to the children involved and their parents.
- If it is the first incident, the behaviour policy will be followed accordingly.
- If the bullying continues, an anti-bullying planning meeting will be held with the parents of the perpetrator(s). An anti-bullying plan will be written that the perpetrator(s) and their parents sign.
- The HT, DHT, AHT or PL will meet with the person being bullied once a week to see how they are feeling. If the person being bullied is still worried, further meetings and actions will follow.
