Anti-Bullying Statement - please read our policy for further information
Bullying takes place in schools as it does in other work places.
The aim of the anti-bullying policy is to ensure that pupils in this school learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without fear of being bullied. Bullying is anti-social behaviour and this includes cyber-bullying, it affects everyone; it is unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Cockshutt CE Primary School & Nursery. Only when all issues of bullying are addressed will pupils be able to fully benefit from the opportunities available at our school.
Bullying by definition is:
Behaviour by an individual or group, usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally. At Cockshutt CE Primary School & Nursery we take guidance from:
Shropshire Children’s Trust and Safeguarding Children Board Anti-Bullying Charter 2014
Our approach to equality is based on the following mission statement:
