Rainhill is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of its students so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying or harassment of any kind is unacceptable.
If bullying does occur, all students should be able to report it in the knowledge that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. This is a telling school. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening to themselves or anyone else, is expected to tell the staff or use one of the other channels provided.
There is zero tolerance of bullying in the school and any cases reported are dealt with effectively.
What is bullying?
Bullying involves any repeated action on the part of one or more persons that victims find extremely hurtful. It should be noted that the above definition would, therefore, exclude one off events and could in some cases, perhaps, involve the so-called ‘bully’ or ‘bullies’ not realising the significance of their action.
