Zero Tolerance to Bullying
At Global Academy, we have a zero tolerance to bullying. We believe that no student should have to put up with bullying. Each student has the right to feel, and be, safe while at the academy. This is important for the student’s wellbeing and also because young people who feel safe learn more easily. If students are bullied it is not their fault and they should not feel embarrassed or guilty.
We will treat all incidents of bullying seriously and in a consistent way. We intend to educate bullies so that they stop bullying. We will definitely discipline bullies if we need to in order to stop them from bullying, but in many situations we will be able to stop the bullying without severe punishment. Where appropriate, we will work with students who have been bullied to help them develop their self-esteem and resilience.
There are a number of people students can talk to if they are worried about someone or feel unhappy in any way:
