The Governors at Overchurch Infant School have agreed a clear set of principles upon which they have based their Anti-bullying Policy. This policy is linked to our whole school behaviours policy and together they support the staff in upholding these principles.
Bullying is a complex issue and each case is looked at on an individual basis. There is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach but the following information is intended as a guide to clarify the actions taken if an incident of bullying is reported.
Behaviour and Discipline
At Overchurch Infant School we are proud of the way our children behave. They care for other and know that they are expected to make the right choices in order that school is a calm and happy place to be.
The purpose of the policy attached below is to outline the strategies we use for managing behaviour and discipline. The implementation of this policy is the responsibility of all teaching and support staff. It is important that all staff, children and parents work together in order to support the Positive Ethos of our school. Exceptions to the use of this policy will apply for any instances of bullying or dangerous behaviour when parents will be immediately informed.
Charging and Remissions
Most complaints are settled quickly and informally at school level. Any concerns should be addressed in the first instance to the class teacher or, if appropriate, the SENCO. If you are not satisfied with this outcome then a meeting with the Headteacher or another member of the Senior Leadership Team might be needed to help with your concerns. If your concern is regarding the Headteacher, you may wish to contact the Chair of Governors: (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The complaints procedure exists for those parents who wish to pursue a complaint through more formal channels. A copy of the complaints procedure is available from the school directly or from the Education department, public libraries and public information offices.
If your complaint is in relation to the provision of Special Education Needs, please see Section 25 of our SEND Policy.
