More ways to report bullying concerns
At Arnold Hill we are always looking at ways to improve, being an All Together Gold School for 2018 doesn’t mean that our work to improve stops.
We are launching an email address for pupils and parents to directly report concerns or issues where they feel they/their child is being bullied or to report concerns about another student. This goes directly to Miss Garrad who leads on anti-bullying and this will then be shared with the pastoral team who will contact you and investigate the concerns.
Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face to face or through cyberspace.
All Together Gold School award
We are delighted to announce that Arnold Hill Academy has become an ‘All Together Gold School for 2018 for our work on anti-bullying.
This means that we have taken part in an England wide programme and have been recognised for our work to reduce bullying and improve the well-being of our pupils. Being awarded gold doesn’t mean that bullying never takes place, but that as an Academy we have taken steps to improve how we address issues of bullying and how we support our pupils.
