At Bishop Perowne Church of England College we seek academic excellence for all of our students, within the context of a caring and mutually supportive partnership between school and community.  For this vision to be realised, it is essential that students, staff, governors and parents recognise that bullying is not acceptable. 

All members of The Bishop Perowne community accept responsibility for dealing with and minimising the impact of bullying, and supporting people who have been affected by bullying.

Reporting Bullying

Students should report bullying immediately to a member of staff. This member of staff will support the student in the first instance but will most likely refer the matter to the relevant Head of Year or Pastoral Manager who will take ownership of the investigation, actions, sanctions (if appropriate) and follow up with parents.

  • Depressed
  • Anxious
  • Isolated

Types of bullying:
  • Physical (when someone pushes you, hits you or harms you in any way physically)
  • Verbal (using insults and offensive nicknames)
  • Social (leaving out, fake rumours, damaging a person's reputation, excluding others, online and offline)
  • Cyberbullying (being bullied online, via social networks, apps, messenger and phones)
  • Sexist (unwanted sexual advances, pressurised to do sexual things, sexting, sexuality, spreading sexual rumours)
  • Homophobia (comments about a person's actual or perceived sexuality)

Any student experiencing bullying is encouraged to report the incident (s) immediately so that swift and precise action can be taken.

Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

As part of the schools commitment to ensuring that students take significant ownership in tackling and eradicating bullying behaviour, we have appointed and trained Anti-Bullying Ambassadors who are available at break and lunchtimes in The SEN Hub to discuss and report bullying behaviour to. The Ambassadors will not resolve bullying alone but will consult with members of the Pastoral Team. Students can drop in to see an Anti-bullying Ambassador to play games or socialise in a safe place. Similar systems have been extremely effective in other high performing schools nationally and this initiative will be reviewed periodically to evaluate impact.
