Crofton and Anti-bullying
At Crofton School, all learners have a right to learn and all teachers have a right to teach, free from intimidation and fear. As a result, we will not condone or tolerate bullying of any kind. We pride ourselves on providing a safe and caring environment for all of our learners to flourish – all members of the school community (teachers, learners, support staff and governors) are given training on how to spot bullying and how to deal with it when it occurs.
Everyone has a responsibility in ensuring that bullying does not take place and that all reported incidents will always be taken seriously. Support will be provided for bullied learners – they will be listened to and helped with positive strategies to help them cope. Appropriate sanctions and challenge will be put in place to help bullies change their behaviour.
For more details, please refer to our Anti-Bullying policy.
If you suspect that you (or someone you know) is the target of bullying then there are several steps you can take. Please read the relevant sections below.
Do you offer group training?
Yes we do!
We offer different group classes based on your dogs age and sometimes their existing skill level!
To know what to book in to, here is a quick guide:
If your dog is under 16 weeks of age, you are looking for "Puppy Magic!"
If your dog is over 16 weeks of age, you are looking for "Best Mates!"
If you have completed "Best Mates!" with us or one of our trainers has done an assesment with you privately and advised you to do our intermediate training, you are looking for "Unleashed!"
Do you offer private training?
Yes we do!
We offer 1-1 sessions, In-Home Training and Dog Walking Services. Have a look at the Private Training tab on our website homepage or in the Bookings page for more information on each of them!
I would like to socialise my dog, can you help?
We certainly can!
Due to the fact that we run group classes for dogs of all ages, you can rest assured we have a spot for you somewhere!
All of our group classes generally have between 8 - 12 other dogs/people and 1 - 2 trainers.
Are there any spots left in this course?
We do often book out, however, you will be able to tell if a course has space left in it by starting the booking process.
If, when you click on the service you would like it says, "This Service is Unavailable for Booking", that means that it is booked out!
If the service you want is booked out, have a look at the next set that are starting.
Do you have experience with my dogs breed?
We sure do!
Bonnies has been in business for over 46 years so you can feel very confident that we have dealt with your dog's breed many times and have acheived great results!
Is there support after we complete training?
There sure is!
After you complete a course with Bonnies, you receive a "Gold Card" with your certificate, this entitles you to contact Bonnies for the entire life of your dog to ask questions, receive guidance and organise further training, tailored to your specific wants and needs.
How do I book in?
It's super easy to book in!
All you have to do is click on the service you would like to book in for and click "Book Now". You will input some information like you and your dogs names (This is so we know who you are when you show up and we can tick you off!).
It will also take you through the whole payment process on our secure checkout!
If the "Book Now" button is instead replaced by "The service is unavailable for booking", it means that particular service is fully booked!
How often do you start new courses?
We start our Puppy Magic courses every 2 weeks at The Gap and every 4 weeks at Red Hill and Aspley!
We start our Best Mates courses every 3 weeks at The Gap!
If, for example, you are getting your pup in 4 weeks time, you may not see a class on the website yet for that time. All you have to do is wait and the new classes will go up shortly as previous ones finish!
For advice on how to report cyber bullying or abuse on social media please see here:
Pages that identify and shame private individuals,
Images altered to degrade private individuals,
Photos or videos of physical bullying posted to shame the victim,
Sharing personal information to blackmail or harass people and
Repeatedly targeting other people with unwanted friend requests or messages.
If you receive a tweet or reply that you don't like, you can unfollow that person. If they continue to contact you, you can block the user (just click on the head icon on their profile and select block user). You may find that as they are unable to get through to you, they will lose interest. However, if this is not the case and you continue to receive unwanted replies, abuse or threats, you can report it here straight to Twitter directly. If you know a friend or family member is being abused on Twitter, they have advice pages that can help with step by step help.
