Anti-Bullying & Online Safety

Anti-Bullying & Online Safety

Anti-Bullying

At Whitwick St John the Baptist, we are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.

Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our school. If bullying does occur, all pupils should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively.

Our behaviour policy outlines the consequences of bullying behaviour and we are a TELLING school. This means that anyone (parents, teachers, governors, pupils and staff) who knows that bullying is happening is expected to report it.

Advice for Parents can be found at the Anti-Bullying Alliance website. 

A copy of our behaviour policy can be found on our policy page

Online Safety

At Whitwick St John the Baptist, we believe that educating children to keep themselves safe while using the internet is of paramount importance. Our children are taught about different aspects of online safety through all curriculum areas as well as through special focus lessons and e safety week. Supporting parents at home is part of what we do.

We are living in the digital age and with this in mind internet safety plays a major role in our school life.

The use of the internet in school is closely supervised and controlled through the use of filters but it is really important that the children learn how to be safe on-line at anytime.

The internet, e-mails, social media, mobile phones and instant messages can all be fantastic resources, if used correctly, but sadly can also be misused. We aim to educate our children to remain safe and how to respond to inappropriate activity and cyber bullying.
