Anti-Bullying

Dear Parents,


Family Partnership takes the issues of bullying and harassment very seriously. Recent research suggests that young people who are bullied, may not always tell adults, as they may be afraid or ashamed. This may result in a student being victimized for a prolonged period of time before it is discovered or reported.


Although we are a homeschool correspondence program, FPCS endeavors to provide all students with a safe environment in which to learn, grow and develop. Family Partnership seeks to enlist the support and co-operation of all parents in the school community. In addition to the standard preventative measures endorsed by ASD, we are committed to working in a proactive manner with parents. The purpose of this letter is to share with parents some of the signs that they need to be alert to. Young people who are being bullied may display one or (usually) several of the following signs:


• Has bruises, injuries, cuts, and scratches that cannot be given a natural explanation.

• Wants to go to school a different way to avoid the children who are bullying them.

• Seems very tense, tearful and unhappy after school.

• Talks about hating school or not having any friends.

• Refuses to tell you what happens at school.

• Doesn’t bring classmates or other peers home after school and seldom spends time in the homes of others.

• May not have a single good friend to share free time with (play, shopping, sports and musical events, chatting on the phone, etc.).

• Appears afraid or reluctant to go to school in the morning, has poor appetite, repeated headaches, or stomach pains (particularly in the morning).

• Has restless sleep with bad dreams, may cry in their sleep.

• Has lost interest in school work and gets lower grades. •

• Requests or takes extra money from family (to accommodate the bullies)


These signs may not necessarily mean your child is being bullied, but if present, it is recommended that you check out what is worrying your child.


Be assured that Family Partnership is committed to continually reviewing its policies and practices with respect of bullying and harassment.


Sincerely,

Deanne Carroll - Principal
