Unsworth Academy

Anti-Bullying Policy

Introduction to this policy

The Academy Councillors and staff at Unsworth Academy are of the firm belief that every young person in school deserves the best possible start in life; to be brought up in a safe, happy, healthy and secure environment; to be consulted listened to and heard; to be supported as they develop into adulthood and maturity.

All staff, learners and parents/carers are aware of the negative effects that bullying can have on individuals and the school in general and should work towards ensuring that learners can work in an environment without fear. They understand there is a need to be constantly vigilant to eliminate any instances of behaviour that is upsetting or otherwise stressful to any person within the school environment.

Bullying is unacceptable in school and will not be tolerated. The school also recognises that because of the verdicts in bullying cases it must take note of bullying perpetrated outside school. The school will do what is reasonable and practicable to eliminate any such bullying.

This policy is closely linked to the School’s Positive Behaviour for Progress Policy, Social Media and Safeguarding Policy. Its main purpose is to clearly define the School’s stance in relation to bullying and to provide a framework that enables all staff to take a fair and consistent approach when dealing with instances of bullying.
