Activities have included:

- creating a display board with positive comments.
Well done to all involved!
At Hebburn Comprehensive, we take the issue of bullying extremely seriously and have rigorous systems in place to address it. Bullying of any form will not be tolerated in our school community. We believe that through education and the inculcation of a set of core values, we can work together to create an environment where children feel safe and happy and are confident to raise concerns.
In our last inspection, Ofsted said the following about the school:
“Students say they feel very safe in school. The school makes sure students understand that there are different types of bullying and that these will not be tolerated. Students are confident that any concerns they have will be quickly resolved.”
