What to do about bullying? TELL, TELL, TELL
Tell a friend, tell a teacher, tell a parent, tell another adult. You will be taken seriously and the school will do everything it can to helpyou. You can report bullying to any member of staff
We may ask you to write a statement about what has happened
We may ask you to sign a No Bullying Contract with the person who is bullying which will clearly lay down what the school expects
What will happen to the bully?
Anyone involved in bullying can expect a warning and punishment. Their parents may be involved. They may be required to sign a No Bullying Contract. If they are a persistent bully they will be excluded from Skilts
