Anti-bullying at RES

At RES we aim to provide a supportive, caring and friendly environment for all our students to allow them to learn effectively, improving their life chances and help them maximise their potential. Ensuring every child feels safe is one of our key concerns. Occasionally bullying incidents do happen -both in and out of school. We deal with all incidents of bullying swiftly and efficiently maintaining good contact with parents and carers.

We would expect students to feel safe in school, including an understanding of the issues relating to safety, such as bullying. We also want them to feel confident to seek support from school should they feel unsafe.

Definition of Bullying

‘Behaviour by an individual or group usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally.’ Safe to learn: embedding anti-bullying work in schools (2007).

Bullying differs from teasing or falling out with friends or other types of aggressive behaviour because:

There is a deliberate intention to hurt or humiliate.

There is a power imbalance that makes it hard for the victim to defend themselves.

It is usually persistent.


Occasionally an incident may be deemed to be bullying even if the behaviour has not been repeated or persistent - if it fulfils all other descriptions of bullying. This possibility should be considered, particularly in cases of sexual, sexist, racist, homophobic bullying and when children with disabilities are involved. If the victim might be in danger then intervention is urgently required.
