Anti - Bullying Policy
Bungay Black Dog Running Club will not accept or condone bullying and will address all forms of bullying. Everybody involved with running, whatever their role, has a responsibility to work to stop bullying.
Action to help the victim and prevent bullying
An individual should:
1. Take all signs of bullying very seriously
2. Encourage all young people to speak and share their concerns, help the victim to speak out and tell the person in charge or somebody in authority. Create an open environment.
3. Investigate all allegations and take action to ensure the victim is safe.
Speak with the victim and bully/ies separately.
4. Reassure the victim that you can be trusted and will help them, although do not promise
that you will not tell what has been said.
5. Keep a record of what is said (what happened, by whom and when).
6. Report any concerns to the Child Welfare Officer (Paul Seary or Sally Nicholls).
