At Lowedges Junior Academy, all types of bullying are unacceptable and will never be tolerated. All pupils should feel able to tell and when bullying behaviour is brought to our attention, prompt and effective action will be taken. Pupils are reminded on a regular basis who they should go to should they wish to speak to someone about an incident of bullying.
Lowedges supports anti-bullying week. Anti-bullying is a key part of our RSHE curriculum which helps to ensure all children understand the meaning of this and what to do if we feel it is happening in school. Throughout the curriculum, our pupils learn about staying safe online and how to report any concerns of cyber-bullying. Our pupils learn the importance of tolerance of others through weekly assemblies and by helping them to understand the needs of others including those with SEND.
There will be a worry box in every classroom to enable any pupil to report any concerns if they do not feel they want to verbally talk to an adult.
Members of staff, including Leadership team and Inclusion team have a presence on the academy gate at the beginning and end of each day allowing opportunity for parents to raise any concerns.
