The children, parents, governors and staff have come up with the following definition of bullying:
Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, which intentionally hurts other people, either physically or emotionally.
At Brownlow we believe that bullying is when children threaten, hurt or frighten other children Several Times On Purpose – S.T.O.P.
Bullying is not the odd occasion of falling out with others, name calling, arguments or when the occasional trick or joke is played on some one. It is bullying if this is done over a period of time on purpose.
We are a ‘TELLING’ school, which means we encourage anyone who experiences or sees bullying to TELL an adult straight away.
See the ‘Anti-Bullying’ policy on the ‘Policy’ page for more information.
