This week is national anti-bullying week. This is an annual event and a week where children and young people, schools, parents and carers come together with one aim: to stop bullying. This year the focus was to stop the bullying of ALL children and young people and the theme was ‘Let’s stop bullying for all’. The anti-bullying alliance had the following aims for the week:
- To stop the bullying of disabled children and those with special educational needs.
- To educate those who support and work with children to recognise children and young people who may be particularly vulnerable to bullying – encouraging an inclusive approach within an anti-bullying education.
- Ensure the school and wider community understand that the use of discriminatory language is wrong and will not be tolerated and that this includes challenging disablist language.
The week was kicked off with a whole school assembly and our children have also enjoyed participating in a range of activities in their classes.
Danny Blaine and Anna Kelly from 4VW said :
“This week we have been learning about anti-bullying. If you get bullied make sure you tell a teacher or a responsible adult. Did you know that if you’re not a bully or a victim and you’re just watching it happening you’re a bystander? If you see someone getting bullied you also need to tell a teacher straight away. We hope that you now know a lot more about anti-bullying week.”
Thanks goes to Miss White and Miss Turley for organising.
Please may I again remind parents about the parking restrictions around the school. Some parents are continuing to park inconsiderately on both Woodlea Drive and Sharmans Cross Road where yellow lines are in place. The safety of our whole school community is very important and we are continuing to monitor the situation closely. Please let us know if you see cars parked illegally by giving registration numbers to the school office, repeat offenders will then be published on our newsletter. Thank you for your support in this matter and ensuring the safety of our children.
