Anti Bullying


At Lower Park School, we have a zero-tolerance approach to bullying. Central to our school’s anti-bullying policy is the principle that ‘bullying is always unacceptable’ and that ‘all pupils have a right not to be bullied’. We also believe in preventative education; teaching children carefully, clearly and regularly through our PSHE and RSE curriculum to understand what bullying is, how to prevent it, how to help others and convey a clear message that bullying will not be tolerated in our school. Children take an active ongoing role in their education against bullying, led by our Inclusion Team.

Bullying is: 

  • repeated

  • intended to hurt someone either physically or emotionally

  • often aimed at certain groups, for example because of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation

Bullying can take many forms:

  • physical assault

  • teasing

  • making threats

  • name calling

  • cyberbullying - bullying via mobile phone or online (for example email, social networks and instant messenger)

For more details on the school approach and processes, please see our Behaviour Policy.

Attached is a child friendly version of the Anti Bullying Policy which was written by our Inclusion Team and shared in whole school assemblies.
