This policy has been written in the light of the gospel and our school mission statement.
At St Brigid’s R.C. Primary School we are committed to a policy of inclusion and equality where all children are able to accept diversity and through our Catholic values respect one another.
We believe that bullying behaviour is totally unacceptable, and actively seek to ensure that all children feel happy and safe in school.
What is bullying? (DFE definition)
Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally.
Bullying can take many forms (for instance, cyber-bullying via text messages, social media or gaming, which can include the use of images and video) and is often motivated by prejudice against particular groups, for example on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, special educational needs or disabilities, or because a child is adopted, in care or has caring responsibilities.
