Anti-Bullying Information

Below are a few facts about bullying at Gorse Covert.

  • Whenever the word ‘bullying’ is used by a parent, child or teacher, the Headteacher will investigate the matter and monitor the case until it is resolved.
  • In the last 5 years there have been 20 cases of reported bullying investigated.
  • Of these 20 cases, 18 were investigated after the initial report, the children involved talked to and there were no further incidents. The case was closed in less than 1 month.
  • A further 2 cases involved no more than 3 incidents before the case was monitored for any further incidents and then closed.
  • 2 cases also included cyber bullying. The vast majority were ‘friends falling out’.
  • We currently only have 1 case which is being monitored. All others have been resolved and are closed cases.

Anti-bullying is a core part of our general ethos and PSHE curriculum. As a result of this, there are very few cases of bullying. In 2014-15 there were 6 cases. 5 cases in 2015-16 and 2 cases in 2016-17. In 2017-18 there 4 cases and in 2018-19 there were 3 cases. In 2019-20 and 2020-21 there was only 1 case reported (school partially closed due to Covid-19).
