Bullying is not tolerated in any form; verbal or physical attacks, name calling or isolating children from groups are all treated seriously. All children and adults at our school have a clear understanding of how we should treat each other. If bullying occurs, it is dealt with immediately. Our Learning Mentor provides support for children who may experience friendship problems or bullying, and children are encouraged to talk to Mrs Martin if they feel they need to. Mrs Martin also operates a daily drop-in for parents to pop in and discuss any issues from 9.00 to 9.30 every day. Parents can also contact Mrs Martin by phone or by e-mailing the school.

Children in school are reminded that bullying is a set of action that are Several Times On Purpose. We use the acronym STOP to remind them of this.

S – Several
T – Times
O – On
P – Purpose

Children at Tranmere Park have worked to create their own anti-bullying policy and have all agreed to follow it.
