“We aim to send all young people into an ever-changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it.”


At Rawmarsh, bullying is unacceptable and is not tolerated by students, staff, or the wider community. Never tolerate anyone who seeks to hurt you – either physically or emotionally.

Remember the problem is with them, not you!

If you feel you are being bullied, REACH OUT!

  • Don’t retaliate
  • Tell a member of staff
  • Surround yourself with friends
  • Be proud of who you are
  • Trust us to help you

If you are being bullied online:

  • Don’t reply, save the evidence, report and block, tell a member of staff

If you are being bullied we will support you by: 

  • Self-esteem support through your Non-Teaching Heads of Year
  • Repairing relationships with people who are worrying you
  • Mindfulness support through the Student Support Team
  • Regular check-ins by the support team

If you demonstrate any behaviour that we consider bullying:

  • We will involve your parents/carers
  • We will look to modify your behaviour in a supportive environment
  • We may put in place serious consequences including suspension from school

Remember to speak up against bullying: 

  • Standing by silently, or laughing along, helps encourage bullying
  • Reach out and connect with students who look like they are left out
  • Speak up and report to a member of staff if you observe a fellow student being bullied or harmed

If you are being bullied, or if you witness it, report it to any member of staff. If you feel it is not getting dealt with then tell someone else.

Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

We have a large team of trained Anti-Bullying Ambassadors from Year 7 to Year 11, along with three senior Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in Year 10, who have completed extra training through the Diana Award. The Ambassadors are there should you wish to talk to someone other than an adult in school, and can be emailed at anti-bullyingambassadors@rawmarsh.org 

Our senior Ambassadors Lucy, Amy and Jayden run our Anti-Bullying Group which meets every Wednesday 2nd break in Mu2, where you can get advice, meet new friends and have a weekly catch up. If you’re interested in becoming an Anti-Bullying Ambassador, have a look at this website, and register your interest to Miss Forshaw, the Anti-Bullying Coordinator.
