At Witton Middle School we are committed to ensuring that all children feel safe and thrive in an atmosphere of care, positivity and mutual respect. Bullying is unacceptable in our school and we want to ensure that children are able to recognise bullying behaviours, confident to report these and know that they will be dealt with promptly and effectively.

What should I do if I think I am being bullied?
Always remember that if you are being bullied, it is not your fault and you are never alone.
We are a ‘telling school’. We are doing the right thing and standing up to bullying behaviours. You shouldn’t be scared to talk to someone if you are being bullied. If you talk to an adult, we can help to make it stop.
What are Anti-Bullying Ambassadors?
