Anti-Bullying
At Westerly Public Schools, we believe that a students’ right to feel safe in school is paramount and contributes significantly to his or her capacity for learning and social development.  Westerly Public Schools believes that preventing bullying, harassment, dating violence and/or sexual violence is critical for creating and maintaining a safe, secure and positive school climate and culture, which in turn supports academic achievement, increases school engagement, respects the rights of all individuals and groups and purposefully builds community. 

Parents can find information regarding Bradford Elementary School’s Anti-Bullying policy on page 9 of the Bradford Elementary School Handbook. The WPS Anti -Bullying Task Force and Hotline  webpage is where you can find WPS protocols, hotline phone number, and bullying reporting forms.
