All Together Anti-Bullying Programme

We are very proud to have received the GOLD All Together Award for our Anti-Bullying Work. 

  • The All Together Programme is the work of the Anti Bullying Alliance. Coppice Valley is a member of the alliance.  
  • We work to raise awareness of bullying through Anti-Bullying Week, our curriculum, values and behaviour policy.
  • Our Personal, Social & Health education includes Anti-Bullying lessons for all year groups.   

 

We share the values of the Anti Bullying Alliance, which: 

 

  • believes bullying in any form is wrong and should not be tolerated, and that any environment that encourages bullying, or shows indifference to prejudice and discrimination is unacceptable;
  • believes bullying is a behaviour choice and that anyone can be encouraged to change their behaviour;
  • believes all children and young people have intrinsic value and worth and we embrace their uniqueness and autonomy;
  • respects difference and welcome diversity in our children, young people and in society in general, and believe our work should be inclusive of all;
  • believes children and young people should have the right to feel safe, secure and valued, and that creating a safe environment and dealing with bullying is our shared responsibility;
  • believes children and young people should actively participate in decisions that affect them and should be supported in taking responsibility for their choices and subsequent actions;
  • supports a range of positive strategies to deal with bullying and actively challenge the use of humiliation, fear,  ridicule and other similar approaches in an effort to reduce bullying;
  • works within the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (Articles 14 and 28); and
  • believes that people should be treated with respect and courtesy.
