Policy on Bullying in School

Bullying is a type of behaviour which is totally unacceptable at York High School.

We actively promote good relationships and mutual respect within a caring environment thus raising pupils’ self-esteem. We believe in a school based on respect and tolerance, where all individuals are valued and thrive, and their self-esteem grows. We seek to do this by providing a safe and inclusive environment in which our pupils can contribute, are challenged and achieve their best.

A person is being bullied when another person or group of people make him/her feel unhappy by repeatedly violating his/her personal rights. These personal rights include the right to:

  • learn in a peaceful, safe and pleasant environment
  • have the freedom to be an individual which may mean being different in some way from other people in the school community
  • seek help/support from any teacher or any other adult who works at York High School

If you’re unhappy about anything in school you should tell your Form Tutor, your Year Leader or another member of staff.
