There is also a Bullying and Harassment Policy for staff which they may refer to via the school's MLE. 

Fostering Good Relations

The Oak Farm Infant School Ethos encourages good relations between all students regardless of whether or not they share a protected characteristic as defined by the Equality Act. Click here to look at our Ethos and School Values.

The school also runs regular assemblies on the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL). The school also celebrates and recognises days of celebration in different religions. We have a yearly visit by our local Community Policing Officer to talk about Stranger Danger.

We work with South Hillingdon School Support Network (SHSSN) to promote Olympic values and recognise olympic and paralympic achievement in our annual attendance at the SHSSN Hillingdon Olympic Awards Ceremony. In October 2016 we were fortunate to receive a visit from paralympic UK athlete Hannah Russell who held an assembly with our students to share her experiences.
