Our Policy Is Clear
“We will not tolerate any form of bullying”.
“We aim to ensure that here at Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College all members of our community are safe. We want our school to be a place where Students, Staff, Trustees and Parents/Carers attend feeling that this is a place they feel secure and happy.”
At the start of every academic year, we will launch our Anti-Bullying Campaign “Stamp It Out!” to all students,
Staff and Trustees will then sign our anti-bullying charter which will be displayed in main reception.
All members of our community including Students, Staff, Trustees and Parents/Carers will sign and return documents stating that they have read and agree to our Anti Bullying Policy.
The Community are aware of all types of bullying, which are as follows;
- Homophobic and Racist comments
- Verbal abuse (such as name calling, swearing)
- Physical abuse (such as pushing, hitting, making rude gestures)
- Psychological intimidation (making people feel bad about themselves such as the ‘evil look’)
- Ostracism (leaving people out so that they feel like outsiders)
- Teasing and taunting (such as picking on people, hiding their belongings, making fun of people.)
- Grouping together in a threatening or excluding manner against someone
- Cyberbullying is also unacceptable. We will not tolerate any bullying making use of technology including the Internet, mobile phone messages or text messages
Assemblies & PSHCE
Students and staff will be involved in the delivery of assemblies and PSHCE lessons educating students on what bullying is and the harm it causes. These are on-going and delivered to each year group.

Diana Friendship and Anti-Bullying Ambassadors
Anti-Bullying Ambassador training has empowered our students and staff to change the attitudes, behaviours, and cultures of friendships and bullying within our community by building their skills and confidence to address different situations both on and offline. This fantastic award is delivered through their renowned peer-led approach. The school has 46 trained ambassadors who deliver numerous events and activities throughout the calendar year. This includes staff training, assemblies, parental engagement events and much more. The students perform a valuable mentoring programme in school to support our young people with friendship difficulties and unpleasant behaviour.
