PRIMARY AWARDS: we have WON a prestigious award for our outstanding commitment to anti-bullying and the impact this has had on school.
WE ARE GOLD AWARD WINNERS!
We have received the Anti Bullying Charter Mark GOLD Award for our hard work and commitment to reducing incidents of bullying.
Anti-Bullying lead in school is: Mrs Ridley and Mrs Crompton (deputy head teacher)
At Hill View Infant Academy we have worked very hard to make a child-friendly Anti Bullying leaflet (policy) to help all our children know how to stop bullying at school. The school council have worked with all pupils, teachers and the leadership team to make a special leaflet that every child can take home to share with their families.

If you think you are being bullied rememember to:
- TELL US - You will be listened to, you will be believed and we will try to do something about it. We might need to tell someone else but we will tell you what we are going to do first.
- Tell the person who is bullying you that you know they are a bully and that you are going to tell someone.
- Walk away if you can - do not run - do not argue.
- Keep with others - do not become isolated.
- Stay near adults.
- Keep away from "danger" areas.

To help STOP bullies in school we have …
Worry Boxes in all classrooms and in our entrance. Children can use these to add any worries they have. The class teacher will then speak with the child about their worry and may share this with the class to help solve the worry.
We have a selection of books about being a good friend in our entrance
We have a buddy bench in our school yard where children can sit if they would like someone to play with or a friend to talk to.
We also have a group of Year 2 children called 'Little Leaders' who are there to help out if a child is feeling unhappy or alone at playtimes and lunchtimes. They wear bright caps with a little leaders badge on so that they can be easily seen by others.
