Your safety is very important to us here at the Academy and we will do everything we can to make sure that you learn in a safe environment. If you do feel unsafe at any time, you must tell an adult you trust so that we know about the problem and can deal with it.

If you, or someone you know is being bullied:

- Tell a member of staff or a member of your family immediately
