All adults working in a school have a primary duty to safeguard our students from harm and to enable them to flourish and reach their full potential.

Anti-Bullying and Inclusion

We'd love to say that bullying never happens at Prospect - but that would mean we were ignoring what sadly does happen occasionally at school.
What we can confidently say however, it that bullying will be dealt with swiftly and robustly, and we are very clear that we are an inclusive and tolerant school, and celebrate our diversity.
If for any reason your child is unhappy at school, their form tutor should be their first point of contact.
We are very proud of our work with a range of support networks, and have recently been awarded Bronze School Champion Status by Stonewall, for our approach on LGBTQI+
If you are worried about bullying, are being bullied, or know one of your friends is, you can report it here and we will provide the support that you need.
Report Bullying

The staff’s care for pupils is highly evident. Pupils generally care about each other and are respectful of the diversity within their school community. Pupils told inspectors that staff act swiftly and effectively to stop any bullying that does happen.

Summer School

All students who have been allocated a place in Year 7 for the following September are able to join our Summer School at the end of July each year.

Run by a dedicated team of school staff, this gives our new students the opportunity to meet students from other schools, familiarise themselves with our fabulous site and facilities, start to get to know some of their new teachers, and generally ensure that they are ready for secondary school.

Completely free of charge, we run from 9am – 3pm for the first two weeks of the summer holidays.

Ufton Court

We enormously value our relationship with Ufton Court Educational Trust, an innovative charity that aims to change children’s lives through challenging and inspirational learning outside the classroom. From the exceptional house and grounds of Ufton Court in Berkshire, they aim to raise aspiration and attainment of all children and in particular those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and we are exceptionally proud to be associated with them.

All students, on joining Prospect in Year 7, will participate in a two day residential trip in the first week of term in September. This gives students the opportunity to challenge themselves through a range of exciting outdoor adventures and activities, including archery, invasion games, campfire building, low ropes course and of course ghost stories at night! Student meet others from different primary schools and this is when the strong House bonds start to form, through team building, confidence and resilience and generally having a go. The leadership team always stay as well, to ensure they are able to get to know the newest arrivals in our school.

Our relationship with Ufton Court continues with additional day and residential visits, including weekend revision trips in Year 11.

Rushall Farm

We are also regular visitors to Rushall Farm.

In Year 7, we run a very successful ‘Resilience and Confidence’ programme, involving weekly visits to the farm, aimed at supporting those students who have found the transfer to secondary school most challenging, enabling them to gain in confidence and settle into their new school.

Rushall Farm is also the base for our very successful Duke of Edinburgh Award Expeditions.
