Report a Bullying Concern

What should I do if I feel bullied?

Pope Francis said that “to look at someone with contempt, with scorn, is to look down on them, that is to say: “I am superior and you are inferior”; but there is only one fair and right way to look down on a person: to help them to get up. If one of us, and that includes me, looks down at a person, with contempt, it doesn’t amount to much. But if one of us looks down at a person to give them a hand, to help them get up, that man or that woman is truly great.

As community, we aim to provide a safe place, where each and every person is valued and cherished. As a community we aim to be tolerant, kind, thoughtful and responsible people, who act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).

We believe that all bullying is unacceptable and recognise the detrimental effect on students who may be subjected to bullying. We believe that all victims of bullying should be treated in a supportive manner but we also understand that that those involved in bullying behavior may also require support.

Student Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

An Anti-Bullying Ambassador is someone who has been trained by The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign. Their role is to help educate their peers on bullying, lead on anti-bullying campaigns, promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference and help keep their peers safe both online and offline.


All the school’s student leaders are trained as anti-bullying ambassadors. In the main school they were a grey jumper and the Blue Diana Award badge. In the Sixth Form they wear the Blue Diana Award badge.


What does an Anti-Bullying Ambassador do?

  • To make sure that students being bullied have someone to talk to and know how to report it.
  • To support a student who has been bullied.
  • To help make sure that incidents of bullying are recorded and monitored by the school.
  • To support other students and make them feel that they belong to our community.
  • To help teach students that we do not accept bullying at La Retraite RC Girls’ School and La Retraite 6.
  • To help teachers to lead lessons and assemblies on Anti Bullying
  • To look out for other students and support them.

If you need to talk, come and find us. We are always happy to listen and help.
