Keeping Children Safe

At Wellacre, our main priority is to ensure your children are healthy, happy and safe. This means more than just ensuring their physical safety, Wellacre also focuses on looking after their emotional and mental wellbeing.

We educate students on keeping themselves safe when they are outside of school, from road safety to online safety.

Bullying and Cyberbullying

Bullying behaviour is often deliberately hurtful, repeated over a period of time and is difficult for victims to defend themselves against. It is the wilful, conscious desire to hurt, threaten or frighten someone else. Any behaviour which is intended to hurt others and is SPECIFIC and REPEATED is bullying.

Bullying at Wellacre is very rare and we deal with any reports of bullying quickly and effectively.

If your son has a problem in school with bullying or cyberbullying, please contact their Achievement Tutor or their Head of House. 

For more information on how Wellacre keeps your child safe, and how we can support you, please see the policies section of the website.
