At Ash Green School we believe fundamentally that everyone in our School Community deserves the right to:

  • Feel safe, secure and happy
  • Treat others the way they would like to be treated
  • To share a mutual respect for all members of our community (respect to all, from all)
  • Celebrate difference, and value people’s feelings and faiths, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disabilities.
  • Be who they are freely and happily

What is Bullying?

Accept and Respect Programme

The Accept and Respect charter has been designed during tutor time and through student voice.

“Our differences don’t divide us, they are what bring us together.”

The message in this is simple: it states that we will not accept any form of discriminatory behaviour. This includes:

  • Racism
  • Homophobia
  • Sexism/ misogyny

And any other forms of discriminatory behaviour.

Through our Personal Development programme which includes the Tutor time programme, Assemblies, PSHE lessons and enhanced curriculum activities such as work with Humanutopia and Loudmouth theatre company, we learn about the importance of protected characteristics.

United Against Bullying Plus

For the next two years we will be working with the Anti-bullying alliance and Kidscape as part of the United Against Bullying Plus programme. As one of only 18 schools in the country that are part of this programme, this demonstrates our commitment to tackling issues of any forms of bullying in school.

Meet Our Anti Bullying Ambassadors

At Ash Green we have a dedicated team of people who are there to help and support anybody who is a target of bullying behaviour.

If you have a concern, you can speak to your Head of Year, Pastoral Manager and a member of the Safeguarding Team.
