Next week is National Anti-Bullying Week 2020 and the theme this year is United Against Bullying. But for us at Kingsley, every week is an anti-bullying week. Of course, that does not mean we will never have pupils who feel frightened; in any large community, situations will always arise where children do not always behave with thought towards one another. As a school, we can step in and stop anything we see or is reported to us and work to resolve certain situations; and secondly, we have a key role of educating our pupils about how to be kind, help others and ensure no one in our community has reason to feel nervous or alone.
From parents and carers, to teachers, to governors, to children, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference.
At Kingsley, our pupils can talk to:
The Headteacher – Mrs Jackson
Head of Prep – Mr Andrew Trythall
Senior teacher – Mrs Hamilton
Senior pastoral leader – Miss Gosai
Acting Head of boarding – Ms Lorna Johnson
Their Head of Year
Boarding House Parents
The school medical team
Any member of staff of their choice …
and of course…
their parents, guardians or family
There are so many people at Kingsley School who are ready to listen. Pupils can raise concerns anonymously through Whisper (posters are displayed in school) and pupils should never feel that they are going to be “in trouble” for making a complaint.
We aim for every one of our pupils to be happy at school. This is a deeply held value in our community and we are prepared to work hard to achieve it.
“We’re all a piece in this puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.”
