Anti-bullying

Anti-bullying

Through our culture and ethos we work very hard to produce an environment that is supportive and where everyone feels safe. However, we realise that bullying does take place. We are ever-vigilant and will respond swiftly, carefully and thoroughly to address any issue that comes to light.  We have a well-developed anti—bullying policy which the school will follow when bullying incidents occur. If you have any concern whatsoever that your child or any child might be at risk of bullying please contact the appropriate safegaurding leads:

Drugs advice

Ashcroft High School takes its responsibility to deliver drugs education to its young people very seriously. Through the curriculum, house time, assemblies and outside speakers a comprehensive drugs education programme is delivered to all students. The possession, use or supply of illegal and unauthorised drugs within school boundaries is unacceptable. In order to safeguard other students the school takes a very strong view on bringing drugs into school and will always consider permanent exclusion.
