At Rosedale we are committed to keeping our children safe both inside and outside school. We aim to provide a supportive, caring and safe environment that allows children to learn without fear of being bullied. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. If bullying does occur, parents and children should be confident that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively.
We are currently working towards the Doncaster Anti-Bullying Charter Mark and will be publishing on this page things that we are doing in school to achieve this.
At the beginning of October three children from our Anti-Bullying Team went with Mrs Gallacher, Mrs Senior, Mrs Martin and Mrs Baker to Bentley High Street to do a presentation on the work we’ve done around anti-bullying. The staff and pupils from Bentley’s Anti Bullying Team were very impressed with what we have done and we are now ready to submit our application for the Doncaster Anti-Bullying Chartermark Gold Award. We will hopefully receive this award during Anti-Bullying Week in November. The three children who presented were so confident and presented very well. Well done to them and the rest of the Anti-Bullying Team for all the work they have done and continue to do to prevent and deal with incidences of bullying at Rosedale.
Our Anti-Bullying Team
Our Anti-Bullying Team is made up of teachers, teaching assistants, governors and pupils. They are there to coordinate the things that we do to prevent bullying but they are also there to listen and talk to children who feel that they're being bullied.
Our Anti-Bullying Team is:
We also have representatives from each class who form the children's Anti-bullying Team
Miss Robertson delivered some training to our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors to help them to develop in their very important role in school.
Anti-Bullying Ambassador Meetings
Regular meetings of our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors take place. These children show great dedication and commitment to preventing bullying at our school
Sometimes children prefer to write down their concerns before they talk to an adult about them. In each building we have a Worry Box where children can put their concerns. These boxes are checked and concerns responded to by a member of the Anti-Bullying Team on a daily basis.
Mrs Walker is our Learning Mentor. She is based in The Hub in the Junior Building and is always available for children to talk to. Mrs Walker runs pastoral interventions for children, some as a small group and some as a one-to-one session.
Members of our School Council are Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. In June they planned and led an assembly about anti-bullying.
