At Rush Common School, we work extremely hard to prevent bullying and as a result, we have been recognised this year by Oxfordshire County Council as a model of best practice in primary schools.

Our full Anti-Bullying Policy can be found under the Policies section of our website.

We also have a group of dedicated Upper School Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, who provide peer support within school.

 

 

 

 

We have introduced an ‘Ask ERIC’ box, to provide opportunity for children to share any worries that they may have with staff and our anti-bullying ambassadors. ERIC stands for ‘Everyone at Rush Common is Cared For.’

 

 

Anti-Bullying Week

Each year in November, we hold an ‘anti-bullying’ week in school. The theme for 2015 is ‘make a noise about bullying’. Photos will be posted after the event, but information for parents can be found through the link below:
