Anti-Bullying

We aim to ensure that students learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without fear of being bullied. By addressing issues of bullying we allow all students to benefit fully from the opportunities offered by the school.  Bullying is an anti-social behaviour and affects everyone; it is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

KS3 participate in anti-bullying ilearn days and drama workshops.

Definition of bullying: 

Bullying is a deliberately hurtful behaviour, repeated over a period of time, where it is difficult for those being bullied to defend themselves.  The main types of bullying are:

  • Physical (hitting, kicking, theft)
  • Verbal (name calling, racist, homophobic remarks)
  • Indirect (spreading rumours, excluding someone from social groups)
  • Cyber bullying (defamatory or threatening behaviour by e-mail, mobile phone or social networking)

Students who have bullied will be helped by:

  • Talking through the incident(s) and why the student became involved
  • Being clear about the wrong doing and agreeing the need to change this behaviour
  • Parents or carers will be informed to help change the attitude of the student

If you are being bullied or know somebody who is being bullied, tell someone as soon as possible, drop a note into the ‘bullying box’ in the library, visit an Anti-bullying Prefect Drop-In Session at lunch time, or email bully@fairfield.bristol.sch.uk
