Every student has the right to learn free from intimidation and fear.


Bullying of any kind is not tolerated at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic High School. 

Respect for ourselves and others is central to our core school values, and tackling bullying in school will always be one of our biggest priorities.

In keeping with our Catholic school mission, students are supported in all aspects of their school life at P+P to prevent bullying and its consequences, through:

a coherent structure of sanctions and support to prevent bullying in our school.

a community of mutual respect amongst students, staff, and families

education and awareness raising, as well as the promotion of anti-bullying strategies

quick and effective response and thorough investigation of reported incidents

How to spot signs of bullying

Bullying is more than a falling out between friends, it is an act of aggression, causing embarrassment, pain or discomfort to another. 


It can be: 

  • planned and organised, or it may be unintentional.

  • perpetrated by individuals or by groups of students.


It can take a variety of forms, including...

  • Physical violence such as hitting, pushing or spitting at another student.

  • Interfering with another student’s property, by stealing, hiding or damaging it.

  • Using offensive names/language when addressing another student.

  • Teasing or spreading rumours about another student or his/her family.

  • Belittling another student’s abilities and/or achievements.

  • Writing offensive notes or graffiti about another student. Excluding another student from a group activity.

  • Ridiculing another student’s appearance, gender, way of speaking or mannerisms.

  • Misusing technology (internet/social media/ mobile phones) to hurt or humiliate another student.

All reports of bullying are treated seriously. And reporting bullying is the best way to take action.
