Bullying or harassment within a school environment

We are committed to providing a safe, supportive environment for all people in our educational establishments.

Harassment

Harassment can affect anyone at any age, in any environment.  There may be many reasons why you may not want to leave an abusive relationship, such as financial reasons, practical issues (such as fear of your children being harmed or the abuser gaining custody), or fear of retribution, however the most important thing you can do is seek help.
