Prestatyn High school defines bullying as follows: Deliberately hurtful behaviour which is repeated, often over a period of time. This can be physical or emotional. Bullying makes it difficult for the victims to defend themselves.
Prestatyn High School takes bullying very seriously and seeks to prevent bullying where at all possible. Every learner has the right to learn, free from fear of bullying, whatever form that bullying might take. The school believes all forms of bullying are unacceptable.
The school has a comprehensive system of support for the victims of bullying and the perpetrators of bullying. This includes members of our pastoral team, sixth form mentors in the form of our SPY (sixth formers protecting you) team and the year 10 Buddy teams who support with the transition of year 6 pupils.
The school also focusses the PSE curriculum as well as additional curriculum interventions around anti-bullying as follows:
Better Friendship project throughout the year with different year groups in Key Stage 3.
Youth Service intervention groups throughout the year with different year groups.
