Child Protection and Safeguarding

At The British School, Warsaw we are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our pupils to enable them to learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our school. If bullying does occur, all pupils should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING school. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the staff.

What is bullying?

The British School defines bullying as: Repeated verbal, physical or cyber attacks against a student or groups of students which could cause physical or psychological harm to the victims. It is usually conscious and wilful and consists of repeated acts of aggression and/or manipulation. It can take a number of forms, both physical and non-physical.

 

Bullying Prevention in the Secondary School

The Secondary School has a number of initiatives in place to attempt to limit incidents of bullying:

  An anti-bullying assembly will be held during Anti-Bullying week each year in November so that the students are made aware of what bullying is and what our policy is on dealing with incidents. Form time this week will also be used to deepen students understanding about issues surrounding bullying.

 Small Form groups will help enable honest discussions about bullying and some time during PSHE lessons in KS3 and morning registration will be set aside to discuss these issues.

 Healthy relationships will be units of study in the KS3 PSHE curriculum where links will be made to bullying. Other subject areas will also incorporate anti-bully messages into their lessons wherever possible.

 A quiet area, known as The Harbour, will be set aside at break and lunch that the students know is a safe zone. 

 A "Respect" box will be placed outside of the Assistant Head Pastoral’s office where students can anonymously post information about being bullied or if they witness bullying taking place. 

 

Bullying Interventions

The school recognises, however, that in any large organisation, no matter what steps are taken, bullying can still take place. We take allegations of bullying extremely seriously.  To that effect we will address every incident and take immediate action.  This will be in the form of logging the incident, discussions with students, parents and staff members involved and may result in isolation or expulsion.  Students may also be required to enter the ‘Big Buddy Programme’ and will be mentored by staff.
