Anti-Bullying Charter

As a pupil of Porthcawl Comprehensive School, I understand that:

  1. I have the right to be happy, safe and to be treated with respect inside school.
  2. I also have the right to travel to and from school without being bullied.
  3. I will always treat others with respect.
  4. I will not tolerate bullying; neither will I bully others.
  5. I will not judge others by appearance alone.
  6. I will accept others regardless of race, religion, culture or disability.
  7. If I am bullied, I will tell an adult and ask for help – bullying is too serious not to be reported.
  8. The school will treat complaints of bullying seriously.
  9. The school will then deal with bullying quickly, firmly and fairly.

Advice to Bullied Pupils

If bullied a pupil is advised to:

  • try to stay calm and look as confident as they can
  • be firm and clear; look the bully in the eye and tell them to stop
  • get away from the situation as quickly as you can
  • tell an adult e.g. a teacher, what has happened straight away
  • tell the 'Peer support listening service'
  • tell their family
  • take a friend with them if they are scared to tell an adult by themselves
  • use the support services in school
  • not blame themselves for what has happened
