What to do if...
You are being bullied – Tell somebody, your form tutor or your Head of Year.
As a pupil of Porthcawl Comprehensive School, I understand that:
- I have the right to be happy, safe and to be treated with respect inside school.
- I also have the right to travel to and from school without being bullied.
- I will always treat others with respect.
- I will not tolerate bullying; neither will I bully others.
- I will not judge others by appearance alone.
- I will accept others regardless of race, religion, culture or disability.
- If I am bullied, I will tell an adult and ask for help – bullying is too serious not to be reported.
- The school will treat complaints of bullying seriously.
- The school will then deal with bullying quickly, firmly and fairly.
- I DO NOT DESERVE TO BE BULLIED.
