The SHARP System

There are many ways we can help with bullying.

If you wish to report an incident of bullying, contact your child’s Form Tutor or use the Rudheath Senior Academy SHARP System page.

Alternatively, click  here to use The SHARP System (Student Help Advice Reporting Page System) which allows young people to report any incidents which occur within the school and local community anonymously and without fear.

Anti-bullying Ambassadors

“Young people have the power to change the world” Diana, Princess of Wales

We have a group of students who have been trained as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors by The Diana Award.

They are inspiring positive change in our school, whether it’s through the power of mentoring, standing up to bullying or by listening to young people who are afraid to speak to anyone else.

There are many reasons why young people decide not to talk about incidents, whether that is due to not wanting to talk face to face, lack of confidence, being scared, peer pressure or simply scared in case someone sees them talking to or seen in the schools office, but to name just a few.

Our Ambassadors are not only a friendly face to talk to, they are our eyes and ears both in school and on social media.

They are also sharing their experience with our local primary schools, who, as a result have appointed their own Anti-bullying Ambassadors.

Counselling Directory

Counselling Directory is a confidential service that encourages those in distress to seek help. The directory contains information on many different types of distress, as well as articles, news, and events. To ensure the professionalism of our website, all counsellors have provided us with qualifications and insurance cover or proof of membership with a professional body.

Social Media

Bullying that happens on social media is just as harmful as other bullying — and sometimes it’s even worse. That’s because it’s hard to get away from and it can reach people no matter where they are or what they’re doing.

Getting bullied on social media or through text messaging can feel really terrible. Being connected to your phone, tablet, or computer all the time means that a bully can sneak into your life and make it feel like there’s no safe place to be. But there are things you can do to stop online bullying.

Parents and carers and students can use this downloadable link for more information about social media.

The Childline website has clear information about what to do, and how to report bullying on commonly used social media.

Further advice and useful links can also be found on our E-Safety page.
