We expect high standards of behaviour at all times at Barker’s Lane. If at anytime, you are concerned / worried that your child may be being bullied, please contact school directly to discuss this. Emotions can often run high where a concern around bullying occurs, therefore we would advise that parents DO NOT approach other parents directly. Please talk to your child’s teacher in the first instance who will advise you of procedures that school follow which can be found in our policy: Anti-Bullying Policy
Further advice for parents / carers and children can be found below:

Our school ethos is based on promoting children’s physical and emotional health and well-being in a safe environment, creating a learning climate where children can reach their full potential. This relates to all aspects of health – healthy mind, body and lifestyle.
We have achieved the ‘Healthy School’ award year on year, achieving our tenth successive award in 2014.
Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day and to bring a healthy snack for break time.
All children are expected to follow our ‘Safe Use of the Internet Rules’ when connecting to the internet in school. Our Police Liaison Officer talks to the children about safe use of the internet. If you would like further information please contact school. The Child Exploitation and Online Protection website is a very good source of information.
If you have something to say..
From time to time as a parent you may not be happy with something at school. The best way to resolve any concerns / worries is to talk to us. We value our strong home-school partnership and are happy to discuss any matters.
The first person to approach is always your child’s class teacher, most worries / concerns can be dealt with in this way. If unresolved, please talk / write to Mrs Edwards, the Headteacher. Rarely do any concerns / worries go beyond this stage but if you are still unhappy you can raise your complaint with our governing body Complaints Committee.
Our complaints procedure is explained in our advice sheet ‘I have something to say to the school‘ which is housed in the foyer.
