What is Bullying?

Definition of Bullying

Having consulted with the parents, staff and children, it has been decided that bullying can be described as a deliberate action or actions in order to hurt or upset someone.
Bullying may hurt someone physically or it may hurt their feelings. Bullying is continued, repeated and personal, rather than one off acts of aggression.

What do I do if I suspect my child is being bullied?

  1. If you suspect that your child is being bullied please speak  to someone at school immediately.
  2. All staff will be able to help you so do not think that you are bothering anyone or being a nuisance.
  3. The best person to speak to is your child’s class teacher.
  4. You will be listened to and your concerns will be taken seriously.

We will help. We will listen.

Our Anti-Bullying Leader Mrs. Farrell, (SENCo, Senior Leader and Nursery Team Leader), has the following to help you:

Dear Parents and Carers

At Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant we always put friendships, good citizenship and respecting one another as a top priority for all of our children and staff.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we have an established caring and happy environment in our school.  To make an even greater commitment to this ethos we decided in September 2011 that we would undertake The Anti-Bullying Accreditation.

We are almost ready to submit the evidence that will hopefully enable us to gain the first two, out of four, awards available in the accreditation.

We are committed to completing all four levels of the accreditation as we are confident  that in doing so, we are building on our already well established Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum.  As well as enriching our practice we are also further developing a constructive, pro-active approach to anti-bullying whilst maintaining our positive environment in which friendships thrive.

Of the many productive elements to the accreditation a particularly important area is the involvement of all of our stakeholders and members of our community.  As we move through the steps of the accreditation, we will keep you up to date with all of the work that we are doing both in school and with our community.

Please select from the headings attached to this page of the website to find out more about what we have been doing in our Anti-Bullying activities.  Also, the school council have played a pivotal role in the outcomes of the project to date.  If you would like to find out more about the school council and what they have been doing, go to their page on the website.
