SAFEGUARDING AT ROSSALL The safety and well-being of all our pupils at Rossall School is our highest priority. Our business is to know everyone as an individual and to provide a secure and caring environment, so that every pupil can learn in safety. We expect respect, good manners and fair play to be shown by everyone so that every pupil can develop his/her full potential and feel positive about him/herself as an individual. All pupils should care for and support each other. Rossall prides itself on its culture of open and effective communication between staff and pupils. Our aims are to: a) create an environment in our School which is safe and secure for all pupils b) encourage our pupils to establish satisfying relationships with their families, with peers and with other adults c) encourage children to develop a sense of autonomy and independence d) work with parents to build their understanding of and commitment to the welfare of all pupils. WH O T O T U R N TO: All pupils know that there are adults to whom they can turn to if they are worried, including Houseparents, the Designated Senior Leads (Mr Pryor and Mrs Lee), the Headmaster, Deputy Heads, Senior Teachers and the Medical Staff. All pupils have access to a telephone helpline, enabling them to call for support in private. Every child is given a care card which contains guidance on where to turn for advice, including confidential help lines and web addresses for external specialists. Our notice boards around school, the Medical Centre and all Houses display advice on where pupils can seek help, e.g. Child Line and External Listener. We provide leadership training to our Head Boy and Head Girl and their team of Monitors which specifically covers the importance of offering support and assistance to younger and to vulnerable pupils. FOR M S O F CHI L D A B U S E : Child abuse can be of a sexual, emotional or physical nature, it can also be the result of neglect. Concerns or suspicions may arise through either direct allegation, direct observation or by changes in attitude or behaviour. All members of the teaching and support staff receive Safeguarding training on an annual basis.

35


ANTI-BULLYING AT ROSSALL We seek to prevent bullying by promoting a school ethos in which bullying is regarded as unacceptable. Research suggests that one of the most effective deterrents of bullying is peer attitudes and responses. Pupils are encouraged to remove themselves from situations and to report incidents in which they are concerned that bullying behaviour is occurring. TYP E S O F B U L LY I N G Bullying can include a number of different behaviours: • Emotional - being actively unfriendly, excluding, tormenting • Physical - pushing, kicking, hitting, punching or any violence • Racist - racial taunts, graffiti, gestures • Religious – being singled out because of your religious beliefs • Cultural - bullying based on prejudice and difference • Sexual - unwanted physical contact or sexually orientated comments • Homophobic - because of, or focusing on the issue of sexuality • Disability – targeting pupils with physical or learning difficulties • Verbal - name-calling, sarcasm, spreading rumours, teasing • Cyber - Internet misuse through offensive website postings, e-mail and instant messaging. Misuse of mobile phones through text messaging, camera and video facilities, etc. (Under the Malicious Communication Act 1988, it is an offence for a person to send an electronic communication to another person with the intent to cause distress or anxiety or to send an electronic communication which conveys a message which is indecent or grossly offensive, a threat, or information which is false and known or believed to be false by the sender). • Property - damage to or hiding of another’s property • Indirect - spreading rumours, excluding someone from social groups

ANTI-BULLYING AT ROSSALL

( CO N T IN U ED)

PRE VE NT IO N THR OU G H E D UCAT IO N Rossall seeks to educate pupils about how to interact effectively and positively. We aim to produce a safe and secure environment where all pupils can learn without anxiety and where we minimise opportunities for bullying. Pupils are encouraged to co-operate with each other, form positive relationships and question behaviour which discriminates against others. They should also learn to listen to others at the same time as demonstrating an appropriate degree of assertiveness. To combat the culture of silence, a culture of being prepared to tell is encouraged. Tutor time is used to encourage amongst other things that any pupil being bullied should speak to his parent, Tutor, Year Head, Houseparent, Designated Senior Persons or any other trusted adult about it. • • • • • • •

The school will deal promptly with any concerns over bullying and will involve parents where appropriate. Serious cases are referred to the Headmaster. Records of bullying or suspected bullying will be maintained to ensure any repeated or patterns of behaviour may be identified Where bullying has been identified and intervened against, we will continue to monitor the situation for a suitable time period Appropriate support will be given to the victim and counselling will be available to both bully and victim if appropriate Serious cases of bullying may result in suspension or exclusion. Persistent bullying will result in exclusion Our pupils are encouraged to tell a member of staff at once if they know that bullying is taking place.

TH E S E R IO U S N E S S OF B U L LYIN G It is important to state that anyone can be bullied but that no one deserves to be bullied. Whatever the reason, a victim must be helped and protected. The victim needs to be assisted to develop the personal resources they need in order to overcome the difficulties they are facing. The full Anti-Bullying Policy can be found on the School’s website. 37
