Anti-Bullying

 

Anti-Bullying

At Alsager School we are proud of the positive relationships amongst our student and staff community. As a result of this, we do not have an issue with bullying at Alsager School.

We have created these positive relationships through our Anti-bullying policy which ensures that all staff and students are fully aware of the different types of Bullying and what they should do if they suspect that someone is a victim of bullying.

Our whole school definition of bullying is:

Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally.

Our culture of positive relationships is driven by the work in Co-operative Learning which can be seen on our competition page and our workshop page. Additionally, our Anti-bullying ambassadors are an intrinsic part of our anti-bullying strategy and lead on many aspects of our policy including staff and governor training.

Our Head of College, Mr Clegg, along with the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Walton, have whole school responsibility for this element of our Safeguarding practice.

 

Anti-Bullying Week: Power for Good

 

Over the two week period of the 7th November to the 18th November we have been recognising the significance of ‘Anti-Bullying Week’.  As many people are aware, bullying is very rare at Alsager School and students have strong skills at developing positive relationships and dealing constructively with peer conflict.  However, should bullying take place our students understand and recognise it.  They also know who they can turn to if they need support or if they feel that a peer needs support.

Mr Clegg and Mrs Walton have delivered whole school assemblies on the national theme of ‘Power for Good’ which can be seen below. All of the school have also participated in Anti-Bullying competitions looking at the various categories of bullying.
·         Year 7 Physical Bullying
·         Year 8 Bullying and friendship
·         Year 9 Homophobic Bullying
·         Year 10 Respect
Additionally, our Student Voice have been acting as our Safeguarding Champions and meeting with Mrs Walton to talk about the key issues around bullying and also how we can empower bystanders of bullying.  Our ever pro-active ‘Anti-Bullying Ambassadors’ are about to go into all Year 7 forms and deliver workshops on anti-bullying.
