This week all the children across school have been celebrating Anti-bullying week. We started the week off by the Anti-bullying Ambassadors hosting odd socks days. This was an opportunity for children to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique. On Monday morning all the children took part in a whole school assembly via Google Meet, where we discussed different types of bullying, how it can make people feel and what to do if we witness it. During the assembly we also discussed this year anti-bullying theme ‘United Against Bullying’. Each class was set the task of designing their own jigsaw piece to show what their class was going to do to ensure our school is a safe and happy place for everyone.
Throughout the week each year group completed activities planned by their teachers focusing on a range of different aspects of bullying including different types of bullying, learning what do if they witness it, identifying stereotypes and learning about what discrimination it. The children have worked very hard and have produced some thoughtful pieces of work.
The applications for new Anti-bullying Ambassadors were collected in following the ‘Big Anti-bullying Assembly’ at the beginning of Novembers. Mrs Clark received over 60 applications and spent a long time reading through applications to find the most suitable candidates. It was a difficult decision but at the end of the week during of Star of the Week assembly Miss Ashton announced the names of fourteen children who have been appointed as our new Anti-bullying Ambassadors. All the children will be receiving training in the coming weeks, ready to get to work on our playground in their Year Group Bubbles. Keep your eyes peeled on our Anti-bullying page on our school website for further updates.
