Anti- Bullying

We have been awarded the United Against Bullying  BRONZE  School status for the school year 2023/24.

The United Against Bullying programme is a whole-school and anti-bullying initiative from ‘Anti-Bullying Alliance’. It supports schools to reduce bullying and improve the wellbeing of all children. The overall aim of the programme is to establish United Against Bullying Schools. These schools have evidenced their work to reduce bullying and improve the wellbeing of all pupils. We are proud to be recognised as one of them.

Who are we?

At George’s the personal, social and emotional welfare of our students is of paramount importance which is why the issue of anti-bullying is high profile in the running of our Academy. We believe it is important to keep this issue high profile and continually promote a zero tolerance of bullying at our Academy.

Some of the ways we address this are through:

  • PSHE Curriculum
  • Anti-Bullying Week
  • Flexible Learning Week Programme
  • Peer Mediators
  • Form Tutor Mornings
  • House Noticeboards
  • Assemblies
  • Student Voice Lunches
  • Fundraising
  • House Council
  • Academy Anti-Bullying Logo
  • Parent Focus Group Meetings

Our Academy ethos is that every child has the right to feel happy and safe with students/staff/parents/carers having a responsibility to work collectively to ensure this happens.

The GSA Anti-Bullying Charter

Please see below our 2020/21 Anti-Bullying Charter. This is a statement from GSA outlining both our responsibilities as an Academy and what we expect from our students. We also have a video from a fantastic group of staff and students reading the charter aloud.

Please find linked below some safety tips/resources we think parents/carers might find useful.
