Bullying is any behaviour which intends to hurt another person physically or emotionally. It includes not only the more obvious actions like punching and kicking, name-calling and teasing, but also spreading rumours, pointing out physical handicaps, shouting racial taunts, excluding victims from groups, humiliating, or spreading stories that a child wants to keep private.
Earlsheaton Technology College takes the bullying of its children very seriously and has therefore put into place a strict bullying policy that must be adhered to.
If you feel you are a victim of bullying or know of anybody being bullied you can talk to Mrs Hargreaves (Anti-Bullying Officer), post us a note via the bully box situated near the AHOH's office in the corridor outside T6...
