Anti-Bullying

Anti Bullying Policy


What is the school doing about Bullying?
Maricourt has a school anti bullying policy which has been written using National guidelines. Pupils, staff and governors were also consulted about its content. This is available to view on our School Policies Page.

Progress Leaders


All of our Progress leaders have an Open Door policy and any pupils with concerns can speak to them.

PSHEE


In our Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education lessons, our pupils are taught about bullying issues. They learn what bullying is, the effect it has on those who are being bullied, the reasons why people bully others, and what to do if they are being bullied or know that bullying is going on.

National Anti Bullying Week


The theme for anti-bullying week 2017 (13-17 November 2017) is 'All Different, All Equal', it aims to promote difference and equality in school. Together we can make it clear that we do not accept bullying in our schools, clubs and teams and create environments where all children can develop their skills and talents.

Children and young people have more chance of achieving their full potential without bullying. We know that bullying can lead to children missing school, failing exams, dropping out of sport, staying away from extra-curricular activities, and limiting their life choices. It is time that this stopped.

Maricourt pupils will all receive anti-bullying assemblies this week, and each year group will focus on a different aspect of anti-bullying during their PHSE lesson. Form classes will also be attending a homophobic anti-bullying workshop with our Learning Mentor team during the week.

Cyber Bullying - Keep Safe

1. Don't put pictures or information about other people on the internet without checking with them first - what you might think of as a joke might be really hurtful and upsetting to someone else.

2. Don't let anyone else know your password, and if you suspect that somebody does - change it.

3. Don't reply to a bullying message. Keep it and report it to either your parents or Progress Leader

4. Words can be hurtful - whether written in a message or said face to face. Don't use social networking sites or mobile phones to deliberately hurt someone's feelings.

POINTS OF CONTACT IF YOUR CHILD HAS ANY CONCERNS ABOUT BULLYING

Any teacher in school, including form teachers and Progress Leaders.
