Unfortunately, bullying is an issue that most schools, at some time, have encountered. It’s an issue that requires staff, students and parents to work together to establish a culture that rejects bullying in all its forms. Every person has the right to fully participate in the life of the School, free from any bullying.
All boys have the right to be heard. At Trinity, we encourage boys to speak to staff when they experience a problem though we also emphasise the need for parents to advocate for their son, voicing his needs to the School, particularly if he does not feel able to do this for himself. For example: if a boy feels he has a grievance because he was not dealt with fairly by staff or peers, he has the right to be heard and parents should feel empowered to intervene on his behalf.
