Behaviour that is repeated, intended to hurt someone either physically or emotionally often aimed at certain groups, e.g. because of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
Student voice and parental surveys tell us that students feel safe at BCA however, if you need to talk or need support there are lots of ways we can help. Email the Student Welfare Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak directly to the ‘Bully Busters’ or another trusted adult.

Sexualised harassment and behaviours
We will always challenge sexism and sexual harassment, no matter how small the incident seems to be. We will ensure that all victims are reassured that they are being taken seriously and that they will be supported and kept safe.
Sexism and gender stereotypes feed into a culture where gendered violence is normalised. At BCA we will deal with all sexualised behaviours head on.
