At Coleridge, we value children’s happiness and emotional wellbeing above all else. Children learn best when they feel secure and understood as individuals. We aspire to develop children to be independent and confident learners, who are ready to make the world theirs.
We expect both children and adults to treat everyone with kindness and respect, act with thought and consideration for others, behave appropriately and treat property and the environment with respect.
The school works hard to ensure that the school community (pupils, staff, parents) know the difference between bullying and “falling out” and recognises that not every playground or classroom incident necessarily constitutes bullying.
Bullying can include name calling, taunting, mocking, making offensive comments; kicking; hitting; taking belongings; producing offensive graffiti; gossiping; excluding people from groups and spreading hurtful and untruthful rumours.
We are committed to tackling all types and forms of bullying. For more information on how we go about this, click here to read our full Anti-Bullying Policy.
