What is bullying?
The pupils in each class have been discussing ‘What is Bullying?’ Here is the definition each floor has agreed:
Years 5 & 6:
Bullying is behaviour which deliberately makes another person feel uncomfortable, distressed or threatened. Bullying has different forms (physical, emotional, verbal and cyber) and all forms are treated seriously. Bullying is usually repeated over time, however if a single incident is distressing, this should be reported so that it can be dealt with.
Years 3 & 4:
Bullying is someone being nasty to you lots of times. They might try to kick or hit you or call you names. A bully might also send you nasty messages. Bullying is when someone tries to hurt your feelings or make you feel scared.
Years 1 & 2:
Bullying is nasty behaviour that is done to someone by the same person over and over again. They might try to hurt you or make you feel sad.
If you would like to contact a senior member of staff to discuss any concerns about bullying you can email school on: firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of staff checks for emails each day and will reply to your email within 24 hours.
