Houghton Regis Academy

Bullying

Bullying is when a person or group deliberately intends to cause someone else to feel hurt, distressed, threatened or humiliated.

BULLYING IS NOT ACCEPTABLE

We want everyone at the Academy to feel safe and secure. We believe no one should be bullied in any way.
Verbal abuse of another pupil is bullying. A physical attack on a pupil is bullying.
We must all make sure bullies never win.

If you, or someone you know, is being bullied:

TAKE ACTION

Watching and doing nothing supports the bully.
Tell a member of staff or a member of your family immediately.
You cannot deal with a bully by yourself

Talk to a teacher, your tutor, your Head of Year, your parents or one of the Senior Leadership Teams.
Do not give in to demands for money, sweets or anything else.
Do not try to buy the bully off with sweets or other presents.

TOGETHER, WE CAN AND WILL STOP BULLYING
