Anti-Bullying Week 2018
The week commencing 12th November 2018 was Anti– Bullying Week at Stonebroom. It is very important to teach children exactly what bullying is and how to deal with it. This year the theme was ‘Choose Respect’
During anti– bullying week we teach the children that Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. The behaviour is often repeated and habitual. It can happen anywhere (including on-line.) They are taught what to do if they believe that they are being bullied and also that they have a duty to help others should they see bullying taking place.
We have a ‘Telling’ Box at school. Pupils can share any worries about themselves, or others in this box. We also have a Learning Mentor (Mrs Meegan) who is always available to listen. We have an Anti-Bullying Governor, Caroline Nash, who keeps up to date with the latest anti-bullying procedures. Mrs Nash is also sometimes available after school on the courtyard to discuss any issues with you. Leaflets are also available on the leaflet stand. There are also child friendly anti-bullying leaflets available.
The winners of the anti-bullying poster campaign each won certificate and a book which were presented by a Governor. These posters are now displayed around school to remind our pupils that we are a ‘Telling’ school and that bullying is not acceptable anywhere or at any time.
