You have the right to feel safe and happy at school. At Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery, we take bullying very seriously and ALWAYS want to know if you think someone is bullying you.
How can we help:
It's very important that you tell us if you think something bad is happening to you. Your parents and teachers will always want to help you.
