Anti-Bullying Week happens in schools across England every November. This year’s Anti-Bullying Week has the theme ‘Change Starts With Us’ and is happening this week, from Monday 11th November – Friday 15th November. Each year group this week has either received or will receive an assembly on the theme of anti-bullying and what we can do to prevent it. This was accompanied by a performance from our Y11 drama students and a piece delivered by our Fisher dance group.
To further enforce this message, students in form time have been learning about how they can reduce bullying in school and opening up about times they might not be proud about something they said. Students in upper school have also watched the powerful documentary ‘Odd One Out’ from Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson and how she was a victim of cyber-bullying following her win on X-Factor.
In support of Anti-Bullying Week staff have raised £75 by wearing odd socks in support of ‘Odd Socks Day’ which occurred on Tuesday 12th November. The money raised will be given to a worthy children’s charity.
If your child feels like they are being bullied in school, we have dedicated teachers, heads of years and support staff who they can come to for help.
