John Henry Newman Catholic College is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all students so that they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at the College whether it is on site or off-site activities. If bullying does occur, all students should be able to tell someone, and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell a member of staff or email the Safeguarding Team at feelingsafe@jhncc.org
