At Maiden Erlegh we TARGET bullying
We adopt a zero tolerance approach to bullying and will react quickly to any reports we receive. Mrs Bendall (Senior Assistant Headteacher) is the member of staff responsible for our Anti Bullying Programme in school.
Students are encouraged to report their concerns to a teacher, their Head of Year or a trusted adult. They can also use our dedicated email address, which Mrs Bendall monitors:
Target Bullying Assemblies
At the start of each year all students have an assembly, where we look at what bullying is, the types of bullying there are and what to do if they think they are being bullied or are concerned about another student.
As a school we will support the National Anti-Bullying Week, that takes place each year. This year this is taking place between Monday 16th - Friday 20th November.
All Together Silver Award
We work together with the Anti Bullying Alliance and follow their All Together Programme. We were very pleased to be awarded ‘All Together School SILVER status’ in April 2020. This was recognition for all of the work done to reduce and prevent bullying in the school. We are now working towards trying to achieve GOLD status!
