Hadleigh Junior School believes that all students are entitled to learn in a safe and supportive environment; this means being free from all forms of bullying behaviour. This policy outlines how instances of bullying are dealt with, including the procedures to prevent occurrences of bullying.
These strategies, such as learning about tolerance and difference as part of the academy’s curriculum, aim to promote an inclusive, tolerant and supportive ethos at the academy.
The Education and Inspections Act 2006, outlines a number of legal obligations regarding the academy’s response to bullying. Under section 89, academy’s must have measures in place to encourage good behaviour and prevent all forms of bullying amongst students. These measures are part of the academy’s Behavioural Policy, which is communicated to all students, academy staff and parents/carers.
All staff, parents/carers and students work together to prevent and reduce any instances of bullying at the academy. There is a zero tolerance policy for bullying at Hadleigh Junior School.
This policy complies with section 89 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006
