Safeguarding - Bullying

At Benjamin Britten, we define bullying behaviour as repeated, negative behaviour that is intended to make others feel upset, uncomfortable or unsafe.

There is no legal definition of bullying, but it is usually defined as repeated behaviour which is intended to hurt someone either emotionally or physically, and is often aimed at certain people because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation or any other aspect such as appearance or disability. It can happen face-to-face or online.

Bullying can take many forms including:

Bullying is not simply a 'falling out'.

We are proud to have trained ten of our pupils to be Anti-bullying Ambassadors, who run a Support Hub every break and lunch in English Room 14.
