What We Do

At Orchid Vale, children know that we are a "telling" school. If a child feels upset or hurt by the behaviour of others, they are encouraged to tell a trusted adult.

We also have "Anti Bullying Ambassadors". This is a team of pupils who have applied for the role and work throughout the school to share the anti-bullying message.

For more information, please see our anti-bullying policy.
