At Woodland Grange we want every child to enjoy their time at school, free from discrimination of any type. If a pupil feels they are being bullied then we hope they feel confident enough to speak to us and know that we will deal with it in a caring and sensitive way.
Bullying is wrong and harmful and we do everything we can to prevent any form of discrimination.
We remind children what defines bullying and what they must do if they feel they are being bullied. All school staff are encouraged to report any incidents of bullying to Mr Hayles or Mr Parker.
'At Woodland Grange we regard any type of bullying as totally unacceptable. We define bullying as deliberate, hurtful, repetitive behaviour, in which a child has some type of hold over another, and where a child being bullied finds it difficult to defend him/herself '
What is Bullying?
What can you do?
Each year at Woodland Grange we support ‘Anti-Bullying week’ organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. By making a positive change to show kindness and respect to everyone then we can stop bullying and create a safer environment where children can live, grow, play and learn. (ABA)
We must recognise and celebrate our differences. We are all unique and no-one should feel excluded or bullied as a result.
More information on anti-bullying week can be found by following the links at the bottom of the page. We also cover themes around bullying & discrimination across our curriculum (in every year group) and assemblies.
The Anti-Bullying policy can be found on the OAK Academies trust website: https://www.oaktrust.org/policies
Our e-safety page has further information on cyber-bullying
We are all a piece in the puzzle and together we can be UNITED AGAINST BULLYING.
What can you trust online?

At Woodland Grange we support the annual Safer Internet Day (a global event hosted in this country by the UK Safer Internet Centre). The theme for 2021 was 'In the internet we trust' which aims to explore reliability online. How do we make sure that children and young people are not being exposed to incorrect or false information?
We have compiled an information sheet for parents. Click below to open this documents or click here to visit the SID 2021 website.
