At Hazlewood Community Primary School, we believe that every member of the school community should feel safe and respected. This policy is designed to support children, staff and parents to recognise, report and address any bullying issues. We aim to promote a caring environment where every child matters and support is given to both victims and perpetrators of bullying. This policy explains the ways in which we work together to ensure a consistent approach to tackling bullying behaviour and developing a school ethos in which bullying is regarded as anti-social behaviour and will not be tolerated. Only when all issues of bullying are addressed will children be able to fully benefit from the opportunities available at schools.
