Clee Hill Community Academy follows the Anti-Bullying Alliance Antibullying programme which supports schools in reducing bullying and improving the wellbeing of all children, focusing on those most at risk, including those with protected characteristics.




The programme includes:

At Clee Hill Community Academy, our aim is to identify ways in which to reduce the likelihood of bullying at the school and address issues quickly and effectively. 

Clee Hill Community Academy work with the ABA to ensure that pupils and staff have a good understanding of what bullying is and how to prevent it. The senior leaders, antibullying advisors and antibullying committee all worked together in 2023 to gain a Bronze Certificate from the ABA which was given in recognition of all of the work undertaken.

Antibullying Policy

Clee Hill Community Academy reviews and rewrites our Antibullying policy annually with an antibullying committee which is made up of parents, governors and pupils. What bullying is, is agreed with the committee and then the whole school via a whole school assembly at the start of antibullying week. The policy is reviewed alongside the Antibullying Alliance advice for schools. https://anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/sites/default/files/uploads/attachments/Updating_Writing_Your_Anti-Bullying_Policy%20%281%29.pdf 

The policy can be found on the school policies page of the school website. http://chcacademy.co.uk/policies

Anti-Bullying week

In preparation for antibullying week our antibullying committee meet to review current practice at the school and review/ adapt the school’s antibullying policy. We then kick off antibullying week with a day of unity where adults and children wear odd socks to celebrate what makes us all unique and blue clothing to show that we are united at beating bullying together. Throughout the week, there is additional age-appropriate focus in PSHE lessons and assemblies on strategies to deal with bullying, supporting pupils in reporting unacceptable behaviour and reinforcing messages from the antibullying policy.

Anti-Bullying in the curriculum

The school follows the PSHE association planning for PSHE, which includes a focus on bullying in the Relationships and Living in the Wider World sections. However, in addition to this, during Antibullying week, additional resources from the Antibullying Alliance, and other external material, are used.

What to do if you are being bullied

For children if they feel they need to talk to someone safe about bullying or other issues. This may in in the form of:

  • Worry boxes
  • PSHE lessons
  • Speaking to an adult in school

What to do if your child is being bullied

  • Listen and reassure them that coming to you was the right thing to do. Try and establish the facts. It can be helpful to keep a diary of events to share with the school or college.
  • Assure them that the bullying is not their fault and that they have family that will support them. Reassure them that you will not take any action without discussing it with them first.
  • Don't encourage retaliation to bullying - such as violent actions. It's important for children to avoid hitting or punching an abusive peer. Reacting that way has negative and unpredictable results- they may be hurt even further and find that they are labelled as the problem. Rather suggest that they walk away and seek help.
  • Find out what your child wants to happen next. Help to identify the choices open to them; the potential next steps to take; and the skills they may have to help solve the problems.
  • Encourage your child to get involved in activities that build their confidence and esteem and help them to form friendships outside of school (or wherever the bullying is taking place).
  • Discuss the situation with your child's teacher or Head teacher - or the lead adult wherever the bullying is taking place. Every child has a right to a safe environment in which to learn and play.

Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

Our Antibullying Ambassador have completed 6 weeks of SGET AB training at school and then attended a national training course ran by the Antibullying Alliance in Birmingham. Their role is to identify potential signs of bullying in school, support with lower level issues and signpost staff to any bullying issues.
