ABA (Anti-Bullying Ambassadors)
Bullying is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Orchard Primary School.
We have high expectations to prevent any form of bullying from our community by:
Providing a safe, secure and inclusive learning environment for all with a strong sense of community and good standards of behaviour.
Ensuring a friendly, supportive atmosphere in which all learners can develop their full potential.
Fostering the positive values, attitudes and skills that learners need to be confident, healthy, well-adjusted and responsible community members.
The ABA Team
Our new Y2 and Y6 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have been specially trained to ensure that there are no issues of bullying or intimidating behaviour in school.
Pupils lead assemblies to discuss the importance of friendship and tolerance towards others and help KS1 and KS2 pupils to stay safe and happy during break and lunchtimes.
Here is a link to the NSPCC web site which gives information about what bullying is and signs and symptoms your child might show if they are being bullied.

Worried About Your Child Being Bullied?
If you have any concerns about your child being bullied then please contact Mrs Shields or your child’s class teacher. You will be asked to complete a report with your child and we will take action from there.
All bullying incidents are logged and outcomes recorded.
Bullying Online (see E-Safety page)
If you think your child may be being bullied online at home then you can report this using the ‘report an incident’ button on the home page of our website.
Please save as much of the evidence as possible and we will help to resolve this with you
