Anti-Bullying

All those who study or work at Oasis Academy Hadley believe that bullying is wrong.


Bullying is any behaviour which is intended to hurt, threaten or frighten another person or group of people. It may be a one-off incident or take place on a regular basis.

Incidents of bullying witnessed or reported, will be treated seriously and dealt with quickly and effectively.

Bullying can be:

  • Physical – pushing, kicking, hitting, punching, any form of violence, threats and extortion
  • Verbal – name-calling, sarcasm, spreading rumours, persistent teasing
  • Emotional – tormenting, humiliation, exclusions from groups or activities and nasty looks
  • Racist – racial taunts, graffiti and gestures
  • Sexual – unwanted physical contact, abusive comments
  • Online, phone and social networking sites

Reporting bullying

If you have been bullied or have witnessed bullying of another person you should tell a member of staff or put your concerns in the bully box which will be in the Library.

If you are being bullied

Be firm and clear – look them in the eye and tell them to stop

Get away from the situation as soon as possible

Tell an adult what has happened straight away

If you have been bullied:

  • Tell a teacher or another adult in your Academy.
  • Tell your family
  • If you are scared to tell a teacher or an adult on your own, ask a friend to go with you
  • Don’t blame yourself for what has happened
  • Please put your concerns in the bully box which will be in the library.

Be clear when talking to an adult about bullying:

  • What has happened to you
  • How often it has happened
  • Who was involved
  • Who saw what was happening
  • Where it happened
  • What you have done about it already
