Bullying or discriminatory behaviour of any kind is not tolerated at St. Mary's Catholic High School.
Bullying is the wilful intention to hurt, threaten or frighten someone. It can by physical, verbal, online or in person.
We want our pupils to be 'upstanders' not 'bystanders'.
At St. Mary's we want our pupils to be 'upstanders' rather than 'bystanders'. What this means is that we want our pupils to feel able to speak up and say something if they witness any bullying or discriminatory behaviour. It is important to us that anyone engaging in bullying or discriminatory behaviour sees that their peers are appalled by their behaviour.
