At All Saints’ Catholic Academy we strive to create a happy, comfortable and supportive Christian environment for all associated with the school. Anti-Bullying is concerned with identifying and promoting positive behaviour within a caring atmosphere; enabling students to grow, to learn and to develop positive attitudes. It is also concerned with the identification of any bullying behaviour and the successful eradication of it.

Bullying, in whatever form, is an attempt to prevent another from benefiting fully from the spiritual, physical, social, moral and educational processes. This form of behaviour is one we take very seriously and aim to improve on year by year by consulting the governors, staff, parents/carers and students. Our Anti-Bullying procedures have been designed and implemented specifically to support our students and reduce bullying, but have also been recognised by OFSTED and the Local Authority.

Following the success of our anti-bullying competition, members of our Senior Leadership Team recently met with our Year 13 anti-bullying ambassadors to celebrate the fantastic work they have done over the last few years. All Saints’ has worked closely with the Diana Award to further strengthen our anti-bullying provision and our Year 13’s have played an instrumental role in this partnership. The Diana Award are a leading anti-bullying training provider who offer training, resources and guidance to schools. They also offer an opportunity to work towards a badge accreditation scheme, which enables schools to target work appropriately and receive recognition. In order to achieve each badge, schools must carry out specific actions to demonstrate a commitment and positive impact in each area. The four badges are: Online Safety, Wellbeing, Community Action and Respect. The anti-bullying team have worked incredibly hard over the last few years and as a result, we were recently extremely pleased to learn that we have now achieved all four badges!
