Bullying and Racism

Bullying and racist incidents are very low at King’s, and in throughout the 2015 & 2016 school year there was 0 recorded incidents of bullying and 0 recorded incidents of racism.  We are continually striving to remove this behaviour to ensure all students feel happy, safe and secure at King’s. 

We have always worked hard to prevent bullying and racism and to stamp it out. The aim of these guidelines is to let students know how we can work together to achieve this.
 
WHAT IS BULLYING? 
Briefly, it is the “deliberate desire to hurt, threaten or frighten someone else”. It can range from name-calling, forcing people to give money or possessions away, to hitting and punching.
 
WHAT IS RACISM?
