Support & Wellbeing

At Riverside we take bullying seriously.

Bullying can be defined as an abuse of power by one or more through repeated hurtful or aggressive behaviour to cause significant emotional or physical harm to another person.

Children are encouraged to tell adults about their concerns if they feel they are being bullied and we have strategies for working with children who are involved in bullying.

If you’ve got a good anti-bullying suggestion, email putting ‘Bullying’ in the subject line.
