ALNS is dedicated to ‘standing up to bullying’.
We have committed ourselves to making a difference and are consistently striving to put an end to bullying. We have undergone training by the Diana Award Anti Bullying Campaign and have now trained 60 students to be Anti Bullying Ambassadors.
The links below are from the Diana Award and are to help, advise and educate parents, our young people, and our staff. Our vision is to continue growing our Anti Bullying Campaign and ensuring it is embedded into our school community.
You have a right to feel safe within your community and the right to feel safe from bullying.
Types of bullying
Bullying is among one of the top concerns that parents have about your safety and wellbeing and can be a significant issue. Unfortunately you are at greater risk of being bullied if you have a disability or special education need and if you are, or are perceived to be, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
Bullying can makes lives a misery; it can undermine your confidence and self-esteem and can destroy your sense of security.
Bullying can impact on attendance and attainment at school and can have a life-long impact on your life if you let it.
The anti-bullying message is widely advertised in assemblies to develop a culture of zero tolerance and non-acceptance of bullying behaviours.
Every year the School Prefect team take a lead through the School Council around raising awareness of bullying and the issues it can have. Anti-bullying week is given a high profile through half school and year assemblies, Aspiring Futures lessons, Personal Development days and tutor time activities.
These pages aim to provide useful links to support victims and their parents.
