At Sir John Talbot’s we have a zero-tolerance approach to all bullying (including LGBTQ phobic bullying). We treat all bullying extremely seriously and as a result there will be appropriate consequences given. 

If students experience bullying, they can report it to any member of staff who will inform Student Support and ensure it is dealt with correctly. 

As an inclusive school, we welcome feedback from all our stakeholders. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the school reception who will put you in contact with the correct person.
