Please listen to our school teacher for our school's definition of bullying:

At Bolsover C of E Junior school our pupils learn that bullying is when an incident happens Several Times On Purpose! (STOP!).


Out pupils also learn that bullying is not:

  • A one off fight or argument
  • A friend sometimes being nasty
  • An argument with a friend

If you require any further information or would like a copy of our 'Anti Bullying A Parents Guide' please call in and see Mrs Herbert or Mr Backhouse (the Anti Bullying Coordinator).

Year 5/6 Child Line Programme

Our Year 5 & 6 children will have the chance to work with ChildLine in November on a programme available to every child in the UK in Years 5/6 (in England & Wales).


They will be holding a Collective Worship in our school before then running a class-based workshop a few weeks later about keeping safe.


The ChildLine Schools Service aims to give children:

  • An understanding of abuse in all its forms including bullying, and an ability to recognise the signs of abuse
  • Knowledge of how to protect themselves from all forms of abuse
  • An awareness of how to get help and sources of help, including ChildLine. The ChildLine Schools Service has discussed with us the content of the Collective Worship and workshop and wWe are confident that they are appropriate for primary school aged children. All presentations will be delivered in a child-friendly and sensitive style. After taking part in the programme, children will be asked to give their feedback online with school staff present. The ChildLine Schools Service would also very much welcome your feedback.

More information about the organisation can be found by clicking on their logo below. Additionally, the letter sent home to parents about the programme can be found here.

Anti-Bullying Week 2016 (14th-18th November 2016)


Theme: Power for Good #antibullyingweek




  • To empower children and young people to make a noise about bullying – whether it is happening to them or to someone else, face to face or online;
  • To help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying – both as a way of preventing bullying, and to help children who are worried about bullying;
  • To encourage ‘talking schools’ where all children and young people are given a safe space to discuss bullying and other issues that affect their lives, and are supported to report all forms of bullying;
  • To equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied; and
  • To raise awareness of the impact of bullying on children’s lives if they don’t tell anyone it’s happening – or if they are not given appropriate support – with a focus on the impact on mental health.

Anti-Bullying Week 2014 (17th-21st November 2014)


Theme: #stopbullying for all


Aims: This year we are calling on the school community to take action to stop the bullying of ALL children and young people – including disabled children and those with special educational needs – children who are significantly more likely to experience bullying in schools and the wider community.


Further information about the week can be found below:


Stop Bullying Poster Competition:

The School Ministers will be running a competition for pupils to design and make a poster which enforces the week’s theme of #stopbullying for all. The poster must:
