Bullying is wrong and damages individual children. We therefore do all we can to prevent it, by developing a school ethos in which bullying is regarded as unacceptable. ?We aim, as a school, to produce a safe and secure environment where all can learn without anxiety, and measures are in place to reduce the likelihood of bullying.
We believe that children have the right to work and play in a safe, non-threatening environment.
Teachers use a range of methods to help prevent bullying and to establish a climate of trust and respect for all. They use drama, role-play, stories etc., within the formal curriculum, to help pupils understand the feelings of bullied children, and to practise the restraint required to avoid lapsing into bullying behaviour. Circle time is used to praise, reward and celebrate the success of all children, and thus to help create a positive atmosphere.

We believe that positive behaviour in children stems from learning the core skills and abilities identified in our Religious Education (RE) and Personal, Health and Social Education (PHSE) programmes of study and our values in school. These include:
- Independence and organization
- Self-image and self-esteem
- Reflection and self-control
- Co-operation with adults
- Collaboration with other children
