Our Values


Bullying is not tolerated at Shoreham Academy

What is bullying?

Where someone is being singled out and tormented. It is frequent, deliberate and repetitive over a period of time. It can be verbal, physical or cyber.

What we tell our students about bullying:

  • Everyone has a right to be safe and feel safe
  • No one needs to 'put up' with being bullied
  • It is not your fault if you are bullied
  • Ask for help!
  • Never give up - if the bullying does not stop, continue to get help and support 

What can you do if you feel you are being bullied or know someone who is?

  • Tell your Mentor, Pastoral Manager or any member staff
  • Visit the Shoreham Academy website for details on how to email or phone for help at school

How do I inform someone I'm being bullied?

If you or someone you know is experiencing bullying you must tell an adult. There are many people you can tell at school and a number of ways to do it.

1) Email - You can email your school, this will be read by Pastoral Managers who will deal with your issue swiftly and professionally:

2) In Person - You can talk to your Pastoral Manager in confidence. Remember all teachers and staff will listen to you, if you would prefer to speak to another member of staff then you can do that.

3) Parents or other family members.

4) Childline - If you would prefer not to speak to someone at the school or a family member you can contact Childline:
