This policy is reviewed each year. The safety and welfare of each child is our paramount responsibility.

Advice for parents: Bullying Toolkit

When you have  bullying concern you can complete this form

and send it into the class teacher.

Bullying Concern Form

Don't forget you can ask for bubble time!

We also have a `worry box` in each of our classrooms.

 If you are worried or have a problem the following websites

may be of help.

 We have  a Buddy Bus Stop in the infant playground and

Buddy Benches in both playgrounds. 

Children can go to these if they want someone to play with.

PARTIES

Please be sensitive when it comes to birthday parties.  Party     invitations may not be distributed in school.   It is difficult to

see a child upset because he or she is the only one in a group who has not been invited.

MOBILE PHONES

Pupils are not permitted to have mobile phones in school.  If a child is found to have a mobile phone with them it will be confiscated and returned to them at the end of the school day.
