Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10


Anti-Bullying at Archbishop Cranmer


At Archbishop Cranmer C of E Primary Academy we take great pride in ensuring all children feel safe and happy to live life in all its fullness (John 10:10). To enable this to happen we have a wealth of policies and procedures in place. One of the ways we keep children safe is through teaching children about bullying and the effects it can have. This is covered through our weekly HeartSmart PSHE lessons, where Boris helps us to understand how we can take care of ourselves and each other, and as part of our assemblies and acts of collective worship. We also have visits from external providers, such as the NSPCC, who help us to recognise the importance of speaking out to stay safe.


The Anti-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as…


The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or online.


As a school, we always encourage children to tell an adult if they have any concerns about bullying. If they do not feel they can tell someone they can write a worry down and use our worry monster, who lives in our school library.


Our Link Governor for Anti-Bullying is Mrs Sarah Rowe.


All Together Schools Programme


We were awarded with our Bronze school status in April 2020 following a self-audit of our practice and commitment to anti-bullying. As part of the programme, we achieved the following:

  • Created a specific Anti-Bullying Policy
  • Appointed a member of our Pupil Parliament to act as our pupil representative for Anti-Bullying awareness. Annie and Kaitlyn (Year 5) are our MPs for Anti-Bullying (2020-21), taking over from Maisie who held the role last year (2019-2020)
  • Celebrated Anti-Bullying Week in November, where our Pupil Parliament led an informative assembly and organised 'Odd Socks Day' to raise awareness
  • Introduced a new scheme for PSHE (Personal Social Health Education) which encourages children to develop resilience and covers anti-bullying awareness
  • Provided staff with training materials to support their practice in developments and resources for Anti-Bullying  


Moving forward, we would like to aim for Silver or Gold status for 2021, and have begun to audit our provision and create a new action plan to ensure that we continue to be recognised for our excellent practice in working against bullying. 


Below is a copy of our Anti-Bullying Policy - One of our policies to ensure all children are kept happy and safe.

We're pleased to announce that we have been awarded by the Anti-Bullying Alliance with a Bronze status for our commitment to anti-bullying and wellbeing. This means that our school has been recognised for its good practice. We are proud to be a school that is United Against Bullying and will be continuing to work towards gaining Silver or Gold status in the future!
