The promotion of high expectations with regard to standards of teaching, learning, behaviour and striving for excellence at Chesswood Junior School underpin all aspects of the life of the school. The school community code is fundamental in providing all with a clear understanding of what is expected. The anti-bullying policy supports these principles by:
- promoting respect and tolerance (embracing difference) for each other and the school
- ensuring every individual in the school know their rights and they take their responsibilities seriously
- helping pupils towards an understanding of what is right and wrong
- supporting everyone in forming good relationships with adults and peers.
We believe in tackling incidents of bullying by promoting and sustaining an environment where individuality is celebrated and individuals can develop without fear or anxiety. This policy has been developed on the basis of consultation, common agreement and consensus that we will maintain a consistent understanding of what bullying is.
