Anti-bullying work in
The County Council want Nottinghamshire to be a place where
children are safe, healthy and happy, where everyone enjoys a good quality of
life and where everyone can achieve their potential. For this reason we take bullying
very seriously and we will take action to stop it.
Our definition of bullying:
“Behaviour by an
individual or group repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another
individual or group either physically or emotionally.”
It can happen in the real and the digital world.
How we will tackle
We aim to work with young people in safe environments, to
develop co-operative behaviour and appreciation and tolerance of diversity. This
will involve young people in making decisions and supporting each other where
conflicts may emerge and supporting vulnerable young people.
When a child or young person does encounter bullying we will
ensure that the mechanisms are in place to allow them to:
the incident and feel they have been listened to and taken seriously
it properly recorded so it can be monitored, appropriate action taken and
that appropriate action has been taken.
If families are concerned that their children are being
bullied at school or in other county council settings they should contact the
school or setting to discuss their concern and ask to see their policy and procedures to tackle bullying.
