At Maiden Erlegh we TARGET bullying
We adopt a zero tolerance approach to bullying and will react quickly to any reports we receive. Miss Nimmo (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 Miss Nimmo 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 Anti-Bullying Week is Monday 13-Friday 17 November 2023.
United Against Bullying
The United Against Bullying programme is the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s whole-school anti-bullying programme. It supports schools to reduce bullying and improve the wellbeing of all children, focusing on those most at risk, including children and young people with SEND, children and young people who experience racist and faith-targeted bullying, sexual bullying, homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, looked-after children, young carers and those on free school meals. The overall aim of the programme is to establish United Against Bullying Schools. These are schools that have evidenced their work to reduce bullying and improve the wellbeing of all pupils.
