Definition of Bullying agreed with Moulton School Students

“Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, which intentionally hurts another individual or group, either physically or emotionally.” Preventing and Tackling Bullying (DfE, Oct 2014).

Note: Whilst accepting this definition, it is also noted that bullying may, on occasions, take the form of an isolated incident in which there is an imbalance of power.

Bullying can take many forms:

Many types of behaviour that could be described as bullying are covered by legislation and can be prosecuted as criminal offences under a number of acts of Parliament, for example:

 

Happiness Questionnaire – Student

As a school we think it is essential to keep track on any bullying incidences that occur and deal with them in the best possible way.  If you are, unfortunately, the victim of bullying we would be very grateful if you could take the time to complete our Happiness questionnaire so that we can assess how happy you are with the treatment that you have received.

Happiness Questionnaire – Parent

As a school we think it is essential to keep track on any bullying incidences that occur and deal with them in the best possible way.  If your child is, unfortunately, the victim of bullying we would be very grateful if you could take the time to complete our Happiness questionnaire so that we can assess how happy you are with the treatment that you and your child have received.

Our Anti bullying Steering Team is made up students, staff, governors and parents to ensure a collaboration of ideas and strategies to help prevent bullying. If you have any suggestions or ideas please don't hesitate to let one of the team know.

 

What our students say..
  • Lizzie Buckingham

I really enjoy being part of the anti-bullying steering group. It’s good because you get to know the ideas of other people and then make sure everyone knows what to do if they are being bullied. Going to all the meetings means I know what is going on and what we have to do to achieve our different goals and prevent bullying.

 

  • Shreya Bagha

It’s good that we have our anti bullying group. We present assemblies for the different year groups to raise awareness and help prevent bullying which, if it happens, is a serious problem in schools.

 

  • Ethan Coddling

We need to stop bullying because it makes a happier atmosphere to learn in. I like being part of the anti-bullying group because it’s good to help prevent bullying.

Miss Woodcock, Mrs Scholey and Miss Perry make up the teaching staff members on our anti bullying steering group.

Statement from Anti-Bullying Quality Mark UK

"The Anti-Bullying Quality Mark is a national scheme which shows how good schools are at preventing bullying. It challenges schools to set up effective and sustainable anti-bullying policies and strategies and make them part of their everyday life.

 

Moulton School & Science College achieved the ABQM-UK Bronze Award because staff, students  and parents and Governors demonstrated that anti-bullying is whole school priority in which they all play an active role. Pupils are actively involved in the development of anti-bullying in the school. As a result of their work, the school has established a range of support strategies to make sure that students feel safe and comfortable. 

 

We would like to congratulate Catherine Woodcock and Alison Scholey for their leadership of anti-bullying in the school, as well as their colleagues, the pupils and parents for their hard work. We hope that the Bronze award recognizes their efforts and inspires them to work towards the Silver level."
