Student Anti-bullying Statement

Redmoor Academy is against bullying and any form of behaviour which causes pain or distress to another person.

Remember…

  • You have a right to be safe!
  • Nobody has the right to make you unhappy!
  • If you are being bullied or know that someone is being bullied tell someone.
  • It is not your fault.
  • Keeping quiet gives bullies power.

  • Bullies need help!
