Anti- bullying

At Rivendell Flying High Academy, we have developed an effective anti-bullying policy with input from teachers, additional adults and our children. We have worked hard to promote a safe and welcoming environment and have helped children to take pride in their school. This has resulted in children's attitudes, behaviours and relationships improving and has had a positive impact on learning and achievement


Staff are trained to recognise positive and supportive behaviour and will praise children on a regular basis. Our PSHE and RSHE curriculum with SCARF is designed to develop empathy, emotional depth, resilience and intelligence. As part of our yearly curriculum we have an anti bullying week aimed at developing awareness and helping children to develop coping strategies.

Any Incidents or allegations of bullying are treated seriously and dealt with immediately by all members of staff.

We also use our Peer Mentors, Restorative Justice and reward systems to encourage positive behaviour within our school community.




Why is it so important to respond to bullying?

At Rivendell FHA we recognise that bullying in any form is unacceptable. Bullying hurts victims and can cause long term damage.

- Everybody has the right to feel safe and secure.

- Everybody has the right to be treated with respect.

- No one deserves to be a victim of bullying.

- Bullies need to be shown that their behaviour is unacceptable and shown different ways of behaving.

- Our school will respond promptly to any reported incident of bullying.

Help and Advice for Children affected by bullying (


If you think someone is bullying, you walk away and tell a trusted adult straight away. If you are in school, this can be any of our school staff- they are here to help you. If you cannot walk away easily or if the bullying is causing you to feel sad tell someone you trust exactly what is happening. It might help if you write down what happened and how it made you feel. In every classroom there is a Worry Monster. Write down what happened and how it made you feel. A teacher or other member of staff will soon help you solve the problem.



If you are outside of school, write down the names of anyone who saw it happen then Tell someone you trust exactly what happened and why you feel sad. If you are worried or frightened, or if the bullying is causing you to feel sad, speak to a trusted adult like a teacher, parent, family member or you can call the free helpline.
