Be Ready, Be Respectful, Be Safe

Lionel Primary School

Working together to provide an educational environment that inspires, challenges and nurtures each child.


Bullying is any persistent behaviour that is intended to hurt someone. It can happen anywhere – including at school, at work, online or at home. Examples of bullying include name-calling, making threats, being violent or aggressive, spreading rumours and undermining, humiliating, excluding or pressuring someone.


We are a happy and caring school where expectations of behaviour are high. We provide a safe and positive learning environment within which we seek to develop a mutually supportive culture where children can understand and express their feelings and respect those of others. 


In providing a safe environment for children, we do not tolerate any form of bullying behaviour. All acts of bullying are taken seriously and will be dealt with in accordance with our anti-bullying policy.

As a school we are proud to take place in the annual Anti-Bullying Week, with a range of activities, circle times and assemblies to raise awareness, promote a culture of inclusion and acceptance, and highlight the impact of bullying and the role we all take in preventing it.
