Queensmead Primary Academy

Staying Safe

Your safety is very important to us here at the Academy and we will do everything we can to make sure that you learn in a safe environment.  If you do feel unsafe at any time, you must tell an adult you trust so that we know about the problem and can deal with it.

Bullying is:

  • The wilful, conscious desire to hurt or threaten someone, physically, emotionally or materially on a number of occasions; or 
  • When a person or a group deliberately intends to cause someone else to feel hurt, distressed, threatened or humiliated; or 
  • Behaviour by an individual or group, usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally.

Bullying is not acceptable

  • We want everybody at the Academy to feel safe and secure
  • We believe no-one should be bullied in any way
  • Verbal abuse of another pupil is bullying
  • A physical attack on a pupil is bullying
  • We must all make sure bullies never win

Remember what we learn in school:

S.T.O.P.- Several Times On Purpose 

            - Start Telling Other People

To get the help you need, you must tell someone.


  • Watching and doing nothing supports the bully
  • Tell a member of staff or a member of your family immediately
