At St Anne’s Catholic Primary School we do not accept any form of bullying. Every effort is made:
- To create a safe, caring and friendly environment for all our children to allow them to learn effectively, improve their life chances and help them maximise their potential.
- To ensure that all our pupils feel safe in school, including that they understand the issues relating to safety; such as bullying, including cyber-bullying and that they feel confident to seek support from school should they feel unsafe or threatened.
- To reduce and to eradicate, wherever possible, instances in which pupils are made to feel frightened, excluded or unhappy and wherever possible, instances in which pupils are subject to any form of bullying.
- To respond effectively to all instances of bullying that are reported to us.
- To establish a means of dealing with bullying, and of providing support to pupils who have been bullied.
- To provide support for pupils who are accused of bullying, who may be experiencing problems of their own.
- To ensure that all pupils and staff are aware of the policy and that they fulfil their obligations to it.
All bullying, of any sort, is therefore unacceptable. Pupils who experience bullying will be supported. We recognise the effects that bullying can have on pupils’ feelings of worth and on their school work, and the school community will actively promote an anti-bullying environment.

The children of St Anne's have given reasons for why they think our school is wonderful.
The accompanying music is a song called 'Not alone" which has been written and performed by the very talented Leah D'Cruz.
