Anti-Bullying Week

Anti-Bullying Week 2017

Following on from last year’s very successful Anti- Bullying week, the week was planned by the School Council alongside School Council representatives from the other 7 Stars schools.  The week started with an assembly by the School Council which asked the children to consider what they think bullying is, how it feels, what they would do if they experienced it and how we can stop it from happening. As part of the assembly we watched a video made by the 7 Stars School Councils entitled ‘All Different, All Equal’. The School Council also presented an assembly for parents/carers where they could find out more about bullying and what to do if they are concerned. This was very well attended.  

Throughout the week, each class engaged in activities designed to raise awareness of anti-bullying and to give children confidence to speak out about it. These activities were planned by the class along with the School Council representatives.

The activities included:

  • Children came in non-uniform, wearing blue (the anti-bullying colour) and odd socks (the same but different!) for the launch on the Monday.
  • Throughout the week children learned the song ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ and then sang it in Friday’s assembly.
  • Each child designed an anti-bullying flag. The School Council then chose the best flag overall which will then be made into a 7 Stars anti bullying flag together with the winning flags from the other 7 Stars schools.
  • The School Council made cakes for the rest of the school in groups with Mrs Chidlow. All cakes were the same and then each child decorated their cake differently.
  • Each child drew a picture of their face, focussing on skin colour, eye and hair colour for whole school display, to demonstrate our differences.
  • ‘Hands of friendship’- each child drew around their hand, added a friendship slogan and cut it out. This was then made into a ‘hand of friendship’ book for the library.
  • Every child in each class signed the anti-bullying pledge which is displayed in each classroom.
  • Each class signed the whole school anti- bullying pledge which is displayed in the corridor, the hall and the Headteacher’s office.
  • Children participated in a circle time celebrating friendship.
  • Children took part in a ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ anti-bullying quiz in Friday’s assembly, recapping what we had learned during the week.
  • Year 3 School Council representatives went to Carmountside Primary School (one of the 7 Stars schools) to ‘plant the seeds of friendship’ where they planted bulbs which they will go back to see when they have grown in the spring.
  • Anti-bullying questionnaires were completed by children and were also sent out to parents/carers. The results were collated by Ms Clarke with results being shared with parents via a newsletter and with the children during an assembly.

 

During the weeks that followed, children have felt confident to speak out about bullying. Any incidents of bullying are taken very seriously and are dealt with by Ms Clarke. Incidents are recorded and followed up every two weeks.
