Anti-Bullying

Intent

Everyone at Saville House School has the right to feel welcome, safe and happy.  We want our children to say they feel “free from bullying.”

 

At Saville House School we are committed to ensuring that all pupils learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without fear of being bullied. Our school is a place where every person has the right to be themselves, to be included and to learn.

 

What is Bullying?

Bullying is hurtful or unkind behaviour which is deliberate and repeated. Bullying can be carried out by an individual or a group of people towards an individual or group. The STOP acronym can be applied to define bullying – Several Times On Purpose. 

No form of bullying will be tolerated and all incidents will be taken seriously.

 

Bullying can take different forms and it is important that we know these:
Physical - touching somebody in an unkind way for example, punching, kicking
Emotional - hurting other peoples feelings and leaving someone out on purpose.
Racial - calling somebody names because of the colour of their skin.
Cyber - saying unkind things by instant messages, social media and texts.
Verbal - being teased or called names you do not like.

 

How to spot if someone is being bullied

Pupils who are being bullied may show changes in behaviour, such as becoming shy and nervous, feigning illness, taking unusual absences or clinging to adults. Adults should be aware of these possible signs and investigate further if they feel a child is being bullied.


Sometimes they may not want you to know that they are being bullied but you can see that they are being bullied because of how they look.
Do they look sad? Worried? Upset?

 

If you are worried about something yourself or worried for a friend, you can write your problem down and place it in the worry box which is located in the school library.
