Anti-Bullying Week

We recognise Anti-Bullying week by holding our very own Friendship Week to coincide with our autumn second half value: Friendship. Through our ‘A Valued Me’ system, children learn about the importance of friendship by caring for others and recognising unfriendly behaviours. During Friendship Week, teachers talk about how children can be a good, considerate friend and how we can demonstrate this inside and outside of school. Throughout the year, through assemblies and PSHCE lessons, children are taught about the importance of kindness and how unfriendly behaviours should be shared and will be challenged by school staff.

Here is some of the wonderful work the children have completed where they have focused on what it is like to be a good friend, how we can be kind to one another and celebrating our wonderful friends.

We have also had visitors from One Day Creative, who have been delivering workshops entitled, ‘Change Starts with Us’. In the workshops, children worked in groups to discuss what bullying was and completed a freeze frame activity to show situations which could involve bullying. Children were then asked played some games themed around friendship. They discussed similarities and differences between themselves and their friends and recognised how these made us unique and special.
