Odd Socks and Children Leading Anti-Bullying Assembly

Date: 19th Nov 2017 @ 10:27am

National Anti-Bullying Week got off to a good start on Monday with everyone wearing odd socks to express their individuality to support this year's theme, 'All Different, All Equal'. I did wonder why some of the parents and friends were giving me funny looks on the playground, as I'd forgotten I had my odd socks on!

On Friday we were treated to a special Anti-Bullying Assembly, which was led by the children in Y1. Y3 and Y5 to share the work they had completed during the week. Y1 shared an alternative kinder version of the Ugly Duckling tale and some feelings work linked to the story of The Gingerbread Man. Y3 sang a song about being kind and Y5 shared their jigsaw pieces which represented them as individuals and a powerful role play about the difference between being a Bystander or an Upstander.

It was great to welcome so many parents and friends to our assembly as home, school and community members need to work together to address bullying to make sure our children feel safe wherever they are. We discussed the importance of the issues around cyber-bullying and handed out a magazine called, 'Digital Parent' to help parents and carers to keep their children safe on line. We also shared a good way of remembering the Childline number, 0800 1111, which PC Amy had taught our older children when she visited school this week.

Well done children and we hope you liked our rapping!

People should no bully because it can really upset others and it can scar the victim for life
