Bullying

Carlisle College is committed to providing a supportive, friendly, safe and positive environment so that the students can learn in a secure atmosphere and get the most out of their experience of College life.

Carlisle College does not tolerate bullying.  The College has a policy to deal with instances of bullying - Bullying for students.docx

Bullying has several things in common:

  • it is deliberately hurtful behaviour
  • it is usually repeated over a period of time (although it could be a one-off incident)
  • it is difficult for those being bullied to defend themselves

Examples of bullying are:

Physical Direct Verbal Indirect/Other

Pushing

Teasing

Malicious phone calls  

Threatening body language

Sending notes

Isolation

Invasion of personal space

Abusive language

Setting unrealistic targets

Physical gestures

Rumour spreading

Deliberate occupation of an area to exclude others

Demanding money with force

Ridicule of the person's work, ideas or behaviour

Electronic harassment, e.g. text messaging, E-Mails, chat rooms, chat lines, etc.

 

Verbal threats of violence

 

 

Gossip

 


Bullying or harassment of any kind is unacceptable at Carlisle College.  If it does occur, students are urged to voice their grievances in the secure knowledge that incidents will be taken seriously and dealt with sensitively.
