At the Capel Primary School we believe that all pupils have the right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without the fear of bullying or harassment.
One of the ways we keep children safe is through teaching children about bullying and the impact it can have. This is covered through our day to day workings, our behaviour policy, our assemblies and our weekly SCARF PSHE lessons.
Bullying is not tolerated at our school and we have a clear policy on how to prevent, identify and respond to bullying behaviour. We always encourage children to tell an adult, or use the ‘I wish my teacher knew’ boxes in the classrooms, if they have any concerns about bullying.
On this page, you can find a variety of useful documents, websites, advice and information.
On 27th January, our assembly explored the unkind words and some of us have heard and seen. We also thought about the impact of our words on others, and how they remain with that person long after the words were said. Headteacher, Mrs Farr, helped us understand this by wearing all the unkind words on a special suit. She wore it all day so that we would be reminded that our words still has an effect later in the day. Kind words and actions are so important.
We will challenge people who use unkind words and work together to stop it completely.
