Anti Bullying Policy
In St Joseph’s College we try to create an atmosphere of tolerance and support in which pupils can feel that they are members of a community which has agreed values and in which the worth and dignity of every individual is recognised. Pupils are empowered to raise issues and problems confident in the knowledge that they will be taken seriously, support offered and issues dealt with effectively.
St Joseph’s College does not tolerate bullying because everyone has a right to work and learn in an atmosphere that is free from victimisation and fear.**

'In our school bullying issues are dealt with really quickly and everybody believes you.' Pupil comment March 2012.
