During PSHE lessons, children learn:
· to understand what bullying is, what form it can take and why people may bully;
· to understand other people and take their feelings into account;
· to respect and get on with other children and adults;
· to see things from other people’s point of view;
· to sort arguments fairly;
· to take responsibility and stand up for themselves (without being aggressive);
· to make their own choices and not always ‘go along with the crowd’;
· to understand and deal with their feelings.
During Anti– Bullying week, children practise using all of these skills and more to prevent and deal with bullying at school.
National Kindness Day
On Friday 31st March we participated in 'National Kindness Day.' We carried out lots of fabulous activities to make a real, conscientious effort to be more kind to our friends. Staff all joined in too and the chocolate fairy seemed to make an appearance in one or two teacher's classrooms! See your child's class page to find out what we got up to.
Meet our school’s Anti-Bullying Ambassadors! These children have been appointed to be actively involved in helping to stand against bullying.
The Ambassadors wear blue high-vis jackets so they have a visible presence on the playground for children to go to if they need help.
Recently, they attended training at the National Conference at the Winter Gardens which provided opportunities for children and professionals from all over the UK to come together to explore the topic through creative workshops.
