St Katherine’s School takes seriously the prevention of, and dealing with incidents of bullying.  The school employs three different strands of procedures to tackle bullying:


We believe in creating a safe environment where students feel safe to share any concerns or fears. Students are actively encouraged to report any incidents of bullying. They are taught that they must tell someone if they are worried about themselves or another member of our school community. They can do this by contacting a member of staff in person, or printing and completing a ‘Student Bullying Incident Form’ (below) or emailing Paper copies of this form are available in school. 

Parents who would like to report any incidents of bullying should do so via their child’s Head of House.

Preventative measures include giving guidance to help prevent bullying through assemblies, tutor time and PSHE lessons, supporting national activities such as Anti-bullying Week and undertaking an annual survey where all students can give their views on how safe they feel in school. All students have access to the student summary of the Child on Child Abuse policy in their tutor room.


The school will deal with each incident on a case by case basis following an investigation of the incident/s. Interventions will vary from restorative meetings through to formal suspension.


The school will prioritise support to students affected by bullying so that they feel safe in school. We will also work with children who act as bullies so that they can change the way that they behave towards other students. This may involve restorative justice and work with external agencies. In addition, our Heads of House can offer support for parents whose students are affected by bullying.

Any complaint about how incidents of bullying have been dealt with should in the first instance contact the Assistant Headteacher. If the issue(s) is unresolved contact should then be made with the Headteacher.
