At BPS we do not tolerate bullying of any kind. The school council is currently working on a bullying project within school to be delivered during anti-bullying week.
It is crucial for students to report bullying to any member of staff. Where bullying is reported to staff it is investigated thoroughly and dealt with accordingly.
