Anti-Bullying Week

During Anti-Bulling Week the children learned that bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological.  It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace. We want our children to know they can make a noise and tell someone (teacher, staff member, parent, family member, friend) if they are worried about being bullied.

As part of Anti-Bullying week pupils in Year 5 took part in an Engagelive event online. The pupils were asked to imagine they were part of a school Anti-Bullying Club and to act as counsellors to children who were worried about being bullied. They were given 9 different scenarios and worked with their teammates to provide advice to the children. The Engagelive team were very impressed with the caring and sensible suggestions from the pupils, which all reinforced that we are a ‘telling school’.
