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. Any reports of bullying type behaviour are dealt with swiftly and thoroughly.

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 SPIRIT. All staff and students are role-models of the Alsager Way and we value kindness. 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 Snape, have whole school responsibility for this element of our Safeguarding practice.

Anti-Bullying Week

We regularly recognise 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. Our Heads of College are always on hand to support with pastoral worries.

Assemblies are delivered to all students and they all make Anti-Bullying pledges. In form groups we look at the various categories of bullying.
 
·         Physical Bullying
·         Bullying and friendship
·         Homophobic Bullying
·         On-line bullying
 
We have tackled the language around ‘banter’ and have discussed the escalation of banter and when it tips into causing harm and upset. The theme of Anti-bullying week in November 2020 was ‘United Against Bullying’. We all work together to discuss issues around bullying.
 
Part of the Alsager Way asks for all students to be an upstander not a bystander:


Bystander and Upstander

We encourage our students to be an upstander and to be united against bullying.
