Unfortunately bullying can happen in any school as it does in all areas of society but we are determined that it will not be a problem for students at Ashton Park. The school takes a very firm line on bullying but this can only be effective if we all work together. Please encourage your child in the following ways:

  • To consider how their behaviour may make others feel
  • To be willing to talk to a member of staff about a bullying incident either as a witness or as a victim
  • To think about the difference between bullying and someone just having an off day and being unpleasant
  • To remember that bullying can happen online too.

Where it is considered necessary, a record is kept of bullying incidents so that patterns can be identified and appropriate action taken.
