Anti-Bullying Week 2020

Following on from last year’s very successful Anti- Bullying week, the week was planned by the School Council.  The theme this year is ‘United Against Bullying’. The week started with an assembly by Ms Clarke. Unfortunately the School Council could not do an assembly as we have to stay in our ‘bubble’ due to Coronavirus restrictions. As part of the assembly we listened to Andy and the Odd Socks perform ‘If the Kids Are United’, an anti-bullying song.

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.
  • Children took part in at least one anti-bullying activity each day throughout the week
  • Each child designed an anti-bullying slogan or message which they wrote on the template of a person. The School Council representatives chose the ten best from each class which will be used to make a display
  • 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.
  • 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.
