FSCC has a strong policy against bullying in any shape or form. It is a central focal point of the school; pupils are aware of the possibility and eager to stamp it out. Pupils themselves are ambassadors for anti-bullying and this term delivered an assembly promoting an anti-bullying campaign across the school.
ANTIBULLYING POLICY – condensed version
The Focus School Cambridge Campus Anti-Bullying Policy must be respected and adhered to.
These are some of the important points to remember:
Bullying is un-Christian and unacceptable; it will not be tolerated. If it occurs, action will be taken
Everyone connected with the school – trustees, teachers, students, parents, supervisors, volunteers – need to be aware of the potential problem and work together to eliminate it
Deal with bullying if it occurs, eliminate it from the school and keep it out, promote an atmosphere of pastoral care for all students
Three main types of bullying are:
Physical – hitting, kicking, taking belongings
Verbal – name calling, making offensive remarks
Indirect – spreading nasty stories, exclusion from groups
If you suffer bullying, don’t suffer in silence – tell a teacher or another adult, and/or your parents
If you see bullying, don’t ignore it – tell someone.
Be mature. Maturity is thinking for others rather than myself.
The Secondary School Council is working on a new Anti-Bullying Charter as one of their tasks this term.
