We aim to ensure that students learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment at Bolton St Catherine's Academy without fear of being bullied. Bullying is anti-social behaviour and affects everyone: it is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Only when all issues of bullying are addressed will students be able to fully benefit from the opportunities available at the Academy.
The Academy is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe establishment for all our students so they can learn in a positive and secure environment. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable in the Academy. If bullying does occur, all students should be able to inform any member of staff and be confident that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively.
