If a child or parent feels that a pupil is being bullied, the following action is taken (see flowchart).
Following a confirmed bullying incident, time is spent talking to all of the children involved, talking through the children’s actions, and discussing future behaviour. If a child is repeatedly involved in bullying other children, the child’s parents will again be invited into the school to discuss the situation. In conjunction with the Head teacher, behaviour plans will be put into place in order to more closely monitor behaviour and/or restrict the amount of unstructured playtime for a child, for a period of time. In more extreme cases, for example where these initial discussions have proven ineffective, the Head teacher may contact external support agencies, such as CAMHS, social care etc as appropriate.
