At Castle Hill we believe that all students are entitled to learn in an environment where they feel valued, respected and safe, free from all forms of bullying behaviour. It is made clear to students that bullying is wrong and will not be tolerated.
Whilst we do not tolerate bullying, abuse or harassment of any kind and there are few bullying incidents at Castle Hill, we can never be complacent and we recognise that bullying will inevitably occur. We have therefore put in place a robust Anti-Bullying Policy that encourages staff, students and parents to work together to tackle bullying.
The full version of this policy can be viewed here:
We have also produced a more concise version of this policy for parents which highlights key ways in which you can support your child and this can be viewed here:
If you have any questions or comments about our Anti-Bullying Policy please contact our Deputy Headteacher, Mr Thomas.
Both of these documents are also available from the school office.
