There is no legal definition of bullying. But it is usually defined as repeated behaviour which is intended to hurt someone either emotionally or physically, and is often aimed at certain people because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation or any other aspect such as appearance or disability.
Bullying can take many forms including:
- physical assault
- social bullying
- threatening behaviour
- name calling

ALP Schools operate with a zero-tolerance approach to bullying. This means that the school recognises the adverse effects of bullying and as a result it is not tolerated.
Therefore, on identifying bullying behaviour the school will address it effectively and promptly with support for victims.We will put measures in place that are fit for purpose and consider the individual circumstances of all parties involved in the situation. We will aim to put the victim at ease, be supportive and put actions in place that have a positive impact.
