As a school we adopt the Bolton Safeguarding Team's Safeguarding Policy. Please click the image below to view our safeguarding policy or alternatively find a parent's summary on our 'School Policies' page. 


We also have an anti-bullying policy to help protect our children (click here). As a school with strive to deal with any issues of bullying swiftly and effectively through the procedures that we put in place. Please read the policy carefully to understand the exact definition of bullying. The DfE describe bullying as  “behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally”. If your child comes home and says that they have been upset by another pupil at school, this does not always mean they are being bullied. We do ask that you pass on your concern to a member of staff who will gladly offer support and assistance. 


Please also see below for anti-bullying information from Bolton Council.
