Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated at Stocks Green School.

What is Bullying ...

Bullying is persistent behaviour that deliberately tries to cause distress to another person. This means that the bully or bullies knows that their actions / words are upsetting you and they keep on doing it because that is how they want you to feel.

Bullying is not when an unkind action happens once.

It is -

  • repetitive and persistent
  • intentionally harmful
  • involving an imbalance of power
  • causing feelings of distress, fear, loneliness or lack of confidence.

Bullying can include the following types of behaviour:

  • name calling and teasing
  • taunting
  • mocking
  • making offensive comments – verbally, by text message, by email or by social networking sites
  • malicious gossip
  • stealing
  • physical violence
  • making threats
  • coercion – making someone do something against their will
  • isolation from group activities.



Whatever form it takes, bullying is NOT acceptable.

It WILL NOT be tolerated at

Stocks Green School

So, what do you do if you or someone you know is bullied?


You must tell someone.


There is nothing wrong in this.

If you tell someone, you are not only protecting yourself, you

save other people from suffering in the same way.


Tell your class teacher or any teacher or the headteacher.

or tell a teaching assistant


DO NOT take action yourself.

The teachers will sort it out for you and the bully.


Nobody should put up with being bullied.

Bullying is wrong and hurtful.
