Leaders, staff and pupils create a positive environment in which bullying is not tolerated. If bullying, aggression, discrimination and derogatory language occur, they are dealt with quickly and effectively and are not allowed to spread
Relationships among pupils and staff reflect a positive and respectful culture; pupils are safe and they feel safe
Pupils have high attendance, come to school on time and are punctual to lessons. When this is not the case, the school takes appropriate, swift and effective action.
There is demonstrable improvement in the behaviour and attendance of pupils who have particular needs.
The ABQM-UK Bronze Award supports schools in:
Encouraging leaders, staff, pupils/students and parents/carers to work together to develop a whole school approach to bullying and cyber-bullying
Providing learning opportunities that focus on developing and maintaining positive peer-to-peer relationships
Establishing responses to bullying incidents that are efficient and effective and understood by families, ensuring that attendance is not affected by experiences of bullying behaviour
Ensuring pupils/students with particular needs know what bullying is and supporting them in stopping it
