Manor High will not tolerate bullying of any kind as we believe that all members of the school community have the right to learn and work free from intimidation and fear. All bullying that the school is made aware of will be investigated thoroughly and action taken.
As with all bullying, we will not tolerate cyber-bullying and would encourage young people and their parents to report any such issues to the school, either to the Safeguarding Designate, the House Manager or form tutor.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as:
the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person by another(s), where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be carried out physically, verbally, emotionally or through cyberspace.
Bullying is when someone or a group of people make you feel sad or afraid, over and over again. It is defined as: Several Times On Purpose
It can be:
- Physical : Pushing, kicking, hitting or any use of violence
- Verbal : Name-calling, sarcasm, spreading rumours, threatening, teasing about someone’s race/gender/size/performance/looks/background etc
- Emotional : Excluding, tormenting, being unfriendly, looks, silence, staring etc
- On social media or by mobile phone
- A ‘hate’ incident – meaning you or someone else is being targeted because you or they are seen as being different. This might be because of disability, gender, race, religion/belief or sexual orientation.
You have the right to be treated with dignity and respect and to live without fear. So you must tell someone.
Who could you tell?
- Your parents
- An adult you trust
- A friend
- Your form tutor
- A House Manager
- Contacting Childline on 0800 1111
Remember: you must tell someone. As long as you tell someone they will make sure the school knows, and we can help.
