Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person of group, where the relationship involves a balance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace.
At Chad Vale Primary School bullying is rare. When it happens, bullying is treated seriously, and we try to reach a rapid resolution. Our children are very proud of their school and we ensure that they feel they have a range of trusted adults who they can talk to if they are feeling worried, sad or anxious. This helps to identify issues early and enables quick solutions.
Since December 2022 we have engaged with the Anti-Bullying Alliance 'United Against Bullying' programme. This has helped us to audit our current provision and policy and has improved our responses to any bullying that might occur.
A pupil survey was completed in January, which demonstrated low levels of bullying across the school in comparison to national figures. We have also completed a detailed audit of our policies and procedures which has assisted in the creation of an action plan below.
We will work through the actions on the plan during the Spring and Summer terms in 2023. For ongoing updates, please visit our weekly newsletters page.
