Home // Parents // Anti-Bullying

At Brockhurst Primary School we work together with parents and children to recognise and act quickly to stop bullying. No one should be bullied in school.

What is bullying?

Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, which intentionally hurts another person physically or emotionally. It can often involve the misuse of power by an individual or group by one or more people. Bullying can be verbal (saying unkind words), physical (hitting, kicking) and via the internet or mobile devices.

What should you do if you are being bullied or if you think someone else is being bullied?

If you are being bullied or are worried that someone else might be, tell someone who can help. This could be a parent, teacher or another trusted adult.

All school staff, children and parents want our school to be a safe and happy place to be. Any report of bullying will be taken very seriously. The adult investigating will follow our Anti- Bullying Policy, which can be found below.
