Dear Parents/Carers,

In the approach to Easter we have reminded students of our anti-bullying process in an attempt to ensure that they are keeping themselves and others safe.  We are also keen to consistently encourage students to report all incidents that they feel could be related to bullying. We take all incidents of unkind behaviour and bullying seriously and have a zero tolerance approach.  At The St Lawrence Academy, we aim to create an environment where students feel safe and happy every single day. 

Should you or your child have any concerns around behaviour that is unkind or suspected bullying, please report these by emailing your concerns to: [email protected].

Student responsibilities in relation to bullying:

  • Report any concerns around bullying to a member of staff immediately or send an email to this address: [email protected]
  • Stay strong and know that you do not deserve to be bullied
  • Talk to friends and stay in our safe spaces
  • Seek advice or ways to deal with bullying from staff
  • Do not respond to any form of bullying with violence
  • Tell an adult if you know someone else is being bullied

Parent responsibilities in relation to bullying:

Most people have experienced unkind behaviour in some form throughout their lives, you can help your child by:

  • Educate children on what is kind and unkind behaviour 
  • Support children in identifying what is right and wrong 
  • Encourage children to report this to a member of school staff
  • Reassure children that we will tackle this 

Together, we can beat bullying!

Thank you for your support, we hope you have a lovely Easter break.

Yours sincerely

Mrs G Pattinson

Deputy Headteacher
