The staff and students of St John's strive to be a 'Learning Community Guided by Gospel Values'. A living sign of this community is seen in the way we behave towards each other. Therefore, we will aim to treat all members of our community with the tolerance, love and respect characteristic of people made in the image and likeness of God.

In carrying out this duty, we will seek opportunities to emphasise this message and put it into practice. Those with responsibility for assemblies, tutor group meetings, pastoral lessons, subject lessons, prayers and services will ensure that the school's anti-bullying values are highlighted.

We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our students so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our school. If bullying does occur, all students should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING school. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the staff.

"Students say they feel very safe in school.

"Care, guidance and support are outstanding, allowing all, including potentially vulnerable students, to make good progress and develop in confidence and maturity."- Ofsted Report May 2010

Please don't hesitate to contact your child's tutor or Head of Year if you have concerns regarding bullying.
