Bullying can occur at any stage in life, whether it is at school, home, work or socially. Nationally, bullying whether emotional, verbal or physical, affects a large percentage of pupils, either directly or as witnesses of distressing acts of aggression. Children who are worried about being bullied, or who see their friends bullied are likely to find it difficult to concentrate on their work, and their quality of learning is thus affected. We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all children and young people at Moorside High School so that they can thrive and learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. We take a zero-tolerance approach to any kind of bullying.
Should bullying occur, pupils should be able to tell someone and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively at school. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell a person in authority.
To report an incident of bullying at Moorside High School, please contact your child's Head of Year.
