What are the sanctions for bullying? 

The punishment of the perpetrator will depend upon the severity of the bullying. 


Will the bullying stop immediately?

Unfortunately this not the case in some circumstances. We will take the allegations seriously and act quickly. If there is continued bullying the level of sanction will increase and we will do all we can to support the victim. 


Where can I find the school anti-bullying policy?
