Anti-Bullying Policy

Bullies do not come in standard shapes and sizes, and a policy based on stereotyped assumptions will fail. Luckily, here at Millhouse Primary we are in a small school environment where we get to know each child’s individual character in great depth and are therefore, in a good position to recognise and respond to incidents.

Behaviour Policy
The law requires schools to have a written behaviour and attendance policy. Ofsted reports that schools are most effective where the behaviour policy is applied consistently. Our behaviour and attendance policy helps us to create a caring, stimulating and secure environment in which staff and pupils can work and play safely and to encourage the involvement of parents/carers in the development of their child.

Norvirus - 'Winter Vomiting Disease'

Noroviruses are a group of viruses that cause “stomach flu,” or vomiting and diarrhoea in people. Like all viral infections, noroviruses are not affected by treatment with antibiotics, and cannot grow outside of a person’s body. The amount of norovirus needed to become unwell with vomiting and diarrhoea is extremely small, making it very easy to transmit illness from person to person.

The symptoms are nausea, vomiting, which is often sudden and “projectile”, diarrhoea and sometimes both. Some people may have a raised temperature, chills, stomach cramps, headaches and aching limbs. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick. Norovirus affects people of all ages. In general, children experience more vomiting than adults. The full information sheet with advice about the norvirus can be downloaded here (PDF).
PREVENT Duty Statement

In order for school to fulfil the statutory Prevent Duty by ensuring that staff are able to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, and know what to do when they are identified.
