Anti Bullying

At Tickhill St Mary’s School we are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. We also give the highest importance to the safeguarding and welfare of the children. The Governors, Head Teacher and all staff aim to carry out their responsibilities effectively, efficiently and diligently to ensure that St. Mary’s School is a learning environment, free from bullying, for the children in its care. This policy helps to ensure that this happens for all children in our school, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment or background.


Definition of Bullying
At St Mary’s Primary School, we believe that bullying is:
'The repetitive intentional hurting of one person by another/others where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can be carried out physically, verbally, emotionally or through cyberspace (electronically)'.  

  • Bullying behaviour deliberately causes hurt
  • Bullying behaviour is repetitive
  • Bullying behaviour involves an imbalance of power

We believe that bullying is NOT:  

  • Teasing and banter between friends/classmates  
  • Falling out after a quarrel or disagreement for example, at football  
  • Behaviour that everyone has agreed to take part in



Doncaster Anti Bullying Award

In Anti-Bullying week 2019 we hosted the Doncaster Anti-Bullying Awards and a number of other schools came to join us for the presentation of awards.  Donny Dog came along (Lucky made a new friend!) to present the awards and then visited all the classes in KS1 and 2 to help us remember all we had been learning about that week. We were presented with our Gold Standard Award - well done St Mary's. 

Friendship Force

Our Friendship Force group continues to work hard helping each of us to keep the Playground Promise and uphold our school values so we may continue to enjoy our playtimes. Have a closer look on our school website at our Friendship Force.
