Feeling Sad?

Remember, it is ok to feel sad.

But, you are never alone.

There is always someone who can help you.


Below are some details about how school can keep you safe.

Underneath that, there are some websites and phone numbers that you can use for free.


What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding means keeping you and other people safe. It is the most important job that we do. Our job is to make sure that you are safe and feel safe both in school and when you are away from school. 

If you are worried about something then you must talk to someone who can help. Any adult in school will listen to what you have to say and will always help you. 

If you don't feel safe online, then you can follow the e-safety tips by clicking here, you can fill in a worry form from your desktop, or you can email the school's safeguarding team ( and someone will help you.



What is Bullying?

Bullying is when someone makes you feel sad, many times, on purpose. Bullying can make you feel sad, lonely and frightened. We have a zero tolerance to Bullying at St. James' Junior School. This means, Bullying is not allowed and we take any cases very seriously.


There are for main types of Bullying, which are:

Physical Bullying: When someone hurts someone else physically. E.g. Pushing someone, kicking the back of someone’s chair.

Emotional Bullying: Doing something indirectly to hurt someone else. E.g. Taking someone’s bag and hiding it.

Verbal Bullying: Saying something to hurt or upset someone else. E.g. Name calling or teasing.

Cyberbullying: Any behaviour over the internet or phone that intentionally hurts or upsets someone else. E.g. Prank calls, unkind messages or posts online.


What should you do if you, or someone you know is being bullied?

Tell someone. That is the most important step. Tell a trusted adult. This could be someone at home, or someone at school. As soon as we know about it, we can help to put an end to it. You can also report Cyberbullying via your Chromebook worry page, or emailing the safeguarding team -
