Anti Bullying at SJSWorking and learning together
At Sarisbury CE Junior School we have all agreed that no-one should be bullied. We have worked together so that we know what bullying is, how we can prevent it happening and what to do if you think you or someone else is being bullied.
What should I do if I think I am being bullied or if I see someone else being bullied?
It is really important that you tell someone who can help you. This might be an adult in school, a parent or even a friend who will help you talk to an adult about what is happening. You can also talk to a member of our Peace Team who will let an adult know if you are worried about bullying.
If you don’t feel you can talk to someone, you can use the ‘worry box’ for your year group which is near Mrs Dunford’s room. You can use the worry box to write a message to an adult who can help you and make sure the bullying stops. You can also use the school’s email address to send a message to school.
The email address is: email@example.com
You can find help from outside school from these excellent websites:
What is bullying?
We call bullying the deliberate repeated physical aggression or repeated unkindness by one child or a group of children against another child who can’t defend themselves. Bullying can also happen online and may include any of the following sorts of behaviour:
• Deliberately hurting someone else
• Pushing or jostling
• Name calling
• Damaging belongings on purpose
• Deliberately isolating children from their group of friends
How do we create a school where bullying does not happen?
We all want our school to be a safe and happy place to learn. We each have a responsibility to make our school happy by being kind to each other. If someone has been really kind to you, you can say thank you by telling an adult or member of the Peace Team. Each week we will share a selection of the messages in assembly so that everyone gets to hear them.
We will also talk about how to stop bullying in our PDL lessons and every year in assemblies.
Is bullying the same as falling out?
Not necessarily. Relationships can be tricky and from time to time it is normal to fall out with people, even our friends. Sometimes we fall out and say and do things we don’t mean that might upset the other person. If this happens, saying sorry might help or just giving the other person some time and space. It might be a good idea to ask an adult to help solve the problem. Our Peace Team are there to help you when you are having problems with your friends. They will use our restorative questions to help you understand about the feelings involved.
