To report any safeguarding concerns about students please use the email below to contact us. We will always take your concerns seriously.


Bullying is not tolerated at Acland Burghley School. Our approach to bullying, and our anti-bullying policy, is set out in our Behaviour Policy (section 16 and Appendix D). It outlines how we:

  • Prevent bullying from happening;
  • Act to stop it;
  • Use sanctions with students who have bullied others.

If a student or parent/carer has any concerns about bullying, they should immediately contact the Year Team Leader, and the Key Stage Director of Learning. These staff will take your concerns seriously, and will work with you and others to find a solution.  

The behaviour policy contains lots of helpful advice for students, staff and families about combatting bullying. For further advice, try Kidscape on this link:
