How Hanson Prevents and deals with bullying
Hanson is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of its students so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying or harassment of any kind is unacceptable. If bullying does occur, all students should be able to report it in the knowledge that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. This is a telling school. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening to themselves or anyone else, is expected to tell the staff or use one of the other channels provided. There is zero tolerance of bullying in the school and any cases reported are dealt with effectively.
What Is Bullying?
Bullying involves any repeated action on the part of one or more persons that victims find extremely hurtful. It should be noted that the above definition would, therefore, exclude one off events and could in some cases, perhaps, involve the so-called ‘bully’ or ‘bullies’ not realising the significance of their action.
What does the school offer?
- A team of Anti Bullying mentors that are trained to deal with bullying situations and help students who may be in difficulty.
- Heads of Year are the gatekeepers to help within the school and have access to a range of strategies that can be used.
- Students can approach any member of staff or a member of the anti bullying mentors team. Close relationships are built up with these mentors through regular form visits where activities are carried out.
- The school organises activities, competitions and assemblies during our annual anti-bullying week to raise awareness and an anti-bullying curriculum is delivered in Enrichment Time.
- If you are being bullied then send an email to the address below so that our mentors are informed and ready to help you.
In order for us to tackle bullying effectively, we need your feedback. Please take the time to complete the short surveys below. These are completely anonymous and will be greatly appreciated.
