We regard bullying as serious anti-social behaviour and will always take firm action against it. 学生, staff and parents are encouraged to report any incidents of bullying and know that they will be dealt with promptly and efficiently.

Whilst all students at Copthall are in their year group bubbles due to COVID-19 we have assigned each bubble to an Anti-Bullying display board to ensure all students are signposted to relevant information including  how to report a bullying incident, who Copthall’s inclusion staff are , the definitions of “bullying” and “banter”, the importance of being an upstander and Copthall’s Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.

Parents and Carers - Frequently Asked Questions

If I feel my child is being bullied, who do I report it to?
You should contact the 原理图ool as soon as possible and report the incident(s) to your child’s Head of Year who will investigate the incident.  The 原理图ool will take statements from all students involved and any witnesses to the bullying.

What if the bullying does not stop?
Once we have investigated and dealt with an incident, we speak with the students involved to determine whether or not the issue has been resolved.  然而, if you have evidence that the bullying is still ongoing, please contact your child’s Head of Year as soon as possible.  If the bullying has continued, this would be considered to be an even more serious matter.  The vast majority of students realise, when challenged, that such behaviour is unacceptable.  然而, where children persist in making the wrong choices despite advice, 警告和制裁, then the 原理图ool would impose a more serious sanction and in some cases consider permanent exclusion. 

My child has fallen out with her friend who has said some unpleasant things about her.  这是欺负?
Unfortunately, children do fall out with friends from time to time.  This can result in children saying unkind things to one another.  Most of these situations are quickly resolved and the children “make up” after a short time, generally both being very sorry for the hurt they have caused one another.  然而, 如果这种情况继续下去, this can become bullying in nature, and needs intervention to ensure that this stops. 

My child has fallen out with friends and is now being ostracised by a group of students, 我该怎么办??
Children cannot be forced into friendships.  然而, deliberate ostracising is a form of bullying and will be dealt with accordingly by the 原理图ool. 

网络欺凌 is when a person, 或者一群人, 使用互联网, mobile phones or other digital technologies to threaten or abuse someone.  This is illegal and can be reported to the police.

My child has received abusive messages on a social network site.  我该怎么办??
Report it to the social network site.  You can also report this to the police. Please also let the 原理图ool know so we can do our best to not let the matter be brought in to 原理图ool and cause disruption to students learning and time in 原理图ool.

My child has retaliated to being bullied by another student, and is now being punished.  这公平吗??
Retaliation is never acceptable. We don’t accept physical violence as a solution to a problem.  如果一个孩子被欺负, they must report it to the 原理图ool so that appropriate action can be taken.  We never advise students to take matters into their own hands, as this can escalate the problem, or even develop into bullying itself.   

Will I be informed of the sanctions given to the student who has bullied?
We will inform the parents that the student has been dealt with and a sanction has been issued; however, the details of this sanction will not necessarily be shared as these are a private matter regarding another student.

What if I think my child is treated unfairly by a member of staff?
Please let us know your child’s concerns, or they can talk directly to their Head of Year, 或SLT的成员, 如果他们喜欢. 通常, it is due to the student feeling upset about being sanctioned, and not recognising that others are treated in the same way. 然而, this perception can have a negative effect on relationships. We would therefore raise the concern with the member of staff and identify any problems that need to be addressed by either the student or staff member.

What do I do if I don’t agree with your policy on bullying?
一如既往地, if you feel an approach is unfair or unreasonable, then you can write to the Governing Body asking for a review.  然而, whilst any such policy is in place, the 原理图ool will operate as stated.


网络欺凌 is when a person or group of people use modern technology, 比如互联网, mobile phones or other digital technologies, to deliberately cause upset to someone by threatening, 骚扰, 虐待或戏弄他们.


If cyber-bullying takes place in 原理图ool, this will be dealt with in the same way as any other form of bullying in line with the 原理图ool’s Safe to Learn/Behaviour for Learning policies.

If cyber-bullying is happening outside of 原理图ool through, 例如, 文本, 调用, or social networking communication, then it would still be helpful for the 原理图ool to be aware. If those involved are known/suspected, we would contact the parents of the other children and let them know what has been alleged.  We would also explain that cyber-bullying is a form of harassment and thus a matter that can be passed to the police.  The police would be the correct contact for concerns of ongoing harassment when children are out of 原理图ool and in the care of their parents. 


This is a matter which the 原理图ool takes very seriously and therefore we educate students about the damaging effects of this type of behaviour. Bullying and cyber-bullying are issued that are covered in How to Thrive, 扩展学习的日子, Form Time activities and assemblies throughout the year.

What if your child is a perpetrator?

Although it may be uncomfortable to accept, you should be aware that sometimes children get caught up in cyber-bullying simply by not thinking about the consequences of what they are doing.  You may find that your child has been involved in cyber-bullying others. It is therefore important that you talk with your children and understand the ways in which they are using the internet and their mobile phone. The internet is a ‘faceless’ area where people sometimes say or write things that they would not during face-to-face conversations. They need to understand that the consequences of what they say or write online or by text are just as serious as those that they say directly to a person.

Princess Diana Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

What is an Anti-Bullying Ambassador?

Set up in 2011, the Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme is part of the charity the 戴安娜奖. In 2013 the programme received funding from the Department for Education. The programme offers resources and training to 原理图ools and youth organisations in England, 苏格兰, 威尔士, 爱尔兰和北爱尔兰. After receiving  our training students become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in 原理图ools. In their role they help educate their peers on bullying, lead on anti-bullying campaigns, promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference and help keep their peers safe both online and offline. We have 9 trained Anti-Bullying Ambassadors at Copthall from Year 7 to Year 13

“I wanted to become an Anti-Bullying Ambassador because I strongly believe that bullying has a very damaging impact on an individual, 身体上和精神上. It’s something that can take any shape, form or effect which means it can take place anywhere, telling us that no one is immune to it. I wish to be able to prevent this and be able to help support these individuals who are struggling to cope with this, as I feel that they should have the right to be able to feel safe anywhere without fearing the consequences. This unfair treatment towards them can have consequences on both the bully and the person being bullied, I wish to make them aware of this so that this can be prevented. I hope to be able to educate people on bullying, so that we can all accept cultural differences, and be able to make them feel secure in their environment both online and offline as I feel that we should be celebrating our differences, not using it as an excuse to downgrade someone.” Year 12 反欺凌 Ambassador.
