It is the policy of 1st Barton Scout Group that bullying in any form will not be tolerated from members of this group.

Persons found to be in breach of this policy will be spoken to and dealt with accordingly. This may include contacting parents/carers to address reports of bullying and may result in suspension or termination of membership of the group.

We ask in return that any allegations of bullying are reported directly to the leaders of the group, because rumours and information received indirectly can prove counter-productive in addressing and preventing bullying. In return you can expect the leaders to investigate and deal with any reports of bullying as quickly as is practical.

If you feel you need to address an issue with one of the adult leaders of the group and are unsure how to raise this, you may contact our executive committee via our chair at [email protected]
