WITCHFORD VILLAGE COLLEGE
Students at Witchford Village College are stamping out bullying with a campaign to make the school a “bully free community”.
All of the pupils have signed a footprint that indicates they will not engage in or turn a blind eye to bullying at the college.
Zak Mappledoram, assistant principal, said: “Our college community is a strong and supportive one.
“We must also ensure that when a student breeches our expectations and chooses to bully others, we address it quickly and appropriately.
“Our new reporting system, as well as our new campaign allows us to do this.”
The school launched their new ‘sharp system’. An online tool allowing students and parents to report any bullying that they have witnessed or been victims of.
Daniel Baxby was appointed as principal in July this year and since joining the school he said he “plans to make the college the school of choice in the local area” and “a key community facility and resource”.
