We pride ourselves on being a school where students are ready to learn, respect everyone and feel safe. Nevertheless, we acknowledge that incidents of bullying can occur and are aware that its effects can lead to unhappiness, loss of self-esteem and under achievement. Where this happens, incidents are dealt with swiftly and fairly, as outlined in our Anti-Bullying Policy.

Students can report any concern they have about their own or other’s well-being to their form tutor, pastoral lead, the Student Support Centre or by completing an ‘orange card.’ Orange cards are like ‘worry boxes’ dotted around the school. In addition to this, students can email with any concern. By giving students as many avenues as possible to report concerns, we believe issues can be quickly identified and thoroughly resolved to ensure our community remains a safe and purposeful environment.

The school continues to educate all students on celebrating and valuing difference and diversity within our community. Through tutorials, assemblies and across the curriculum, students learn about how to play their part in an inclusive, respectful and safe community.
