The Pingle Academy takes bullying very seriously and is proud of its anti-bullying work. This is driven by the Anti-bullying Committee, a group involving students, teachers, support staff, governors and members of the community.
The group develops strategies and monitors their progress.
Learning about how to prevent bullying occurs via:
- PSHE lessons in all year groups
Form Tutor Time
Students stop bullying by reporting it:
- to any member of school staff
to peer mentors
to members of the anti bullying committee
on the Frog homepage.
The school has been awarded Derbyshire County Council’s Award of excellence for its anti-bullying work, whilst parent/carer and student surveys show that we have made significant improvements to how we deal with bullying each year for the past 6 years.
