Newark Hill Academy

Bullying

The poster above is displayed around the academy. If something happens we use these three words to establish what has happened.

We learned all about this during our Anti-Bullying Day in November 2016. In assemblies, we revisit the learning about these words.

All incidents of this nature are dealt with and all adults listen and deal with it.

Bullying is when a person or group deliberately intends to cause someone else to feel hurt, distressed, threatened or humiliated.

Bullying is not acceptable

  • We want everyone at the Academy to feel safe and secure
  • We believe no one should be bullied in any way
  • Verbal abuse of another pupil is bullying
  • A physical attack on a pupil is bullying
  • We must all make sure bullies never win

If you, or someone you know, is being bullied:

TAKE ACTION

  • Watching and doing nothing supports the bully
  • Tell a member of staff or a member of your family immediately

You cannot deal with a bully by yourself

  • Talk to a teacher, your parents or an adult you can trust
  • Do not give in to demands for money, sweets or anything else
  • Do not try to buy the bully off with sweets or other presents

TOGETHER, WE CAN AND WILL STOP BULLYING
