Bedminster Down School will not tolerate bullying. Every member of our school has the right to come to school without fear of being threatened, intimidated, mocked or abused. We all have a responsibility to make sure that bullying is not part of life at our school.
What bullying is (and isn’t!)
- Goes on for a while and happens regularly
- Is deliberate. the other person wants to hurt, humiliate or harm the target
- Involves someone (or several people) who are stronger then the person being bullied
All three things have to happen together to be called bullying.
Bullying is not:
- A one off fight or argument
- A friend sometimes being nasty
- An argument with a friend
If you are being bullied, talk to your Head of House or Assistant Head of House. Arrangements can be made for you to speak to a member of staff without making other students aware that this is being done. The sooner we know about a problem the quicker we are able to put in place appropriate intervention for all students involved and prevent bullying happening.
