At St Robert’s Catholic Primary School we believe that all pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without the fear of being bullied. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable in our school. We encourage the Gospel values of personal responsibility and of reconciliation and forgiveness. If bullying does occur, all pupils should be able to tell an adult and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively.
If your child feels he or she is being bullied please encourage them to tell their teacher. Often these instances can easily be nipped in the bud as long as the school is aware of the situation.
The school also has resources to deal with cyber-bullying, so if you feel your child is a victim of this, the school could be in an ideal position to help.

The definition of bullying was informed by parental contributions via our blog - thank you.
Finally, if you have a concern about bullying and feel that it has not been dealt with by the school, the next stage is to inform the vice-chair of governors, via the school office, who will take the matter forward.
