As the school grows we will continue to review the PSHE and wider curriculum to ensure it meets the needs of students. In particular, we want to focus on challenging gender stereotypes and promoting responsible use of social media.

 

3.Eliminating discrimination information

We work in partnership with parents and carers, students and the whole school community to prevent all forms of bullying and prejudiced based behaviour and you can read more about our approach to bullying and eliminating discrimination in our Anti-Bullying Policy, Equality Policy and Sex and Relationship Education Policy (see the school website: https://www.kingsschoolhove.org.uk/).

All bullying and prejudiced based incidents are recorded. These records are used to inform the assembly programme and the PSHE education curriculum and to support and track individual students. Incidents are discussed during pastoral meetings and reported termly to governors meetings.  The school also participates in the local authority Safe and Well School Survey and conducts its own Student Voice Surveys and regular Parental Voice Surveys. This data is also analysed and used to measure impact and inform next steps. This data is reported back to the whole school community on an annual basis.

We actively encourage students, parents and carers to report any bullying and prejudiced based incidents to us. 70% of KS3 students reported that they believe the school is good at dealing with incidents of bullying, compared with 67% on average across Brighton and Hove (Safe and Well at School Survey 2018). Parents and carers have made clear to us that they are very happy that the school deals with any such incidents efficiently and appropriately.
