‘The United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child applies to every child whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, abilities, whatever they think or say, no matter what type of family they come from.’ Article 2. As a Rights Respecting School we know that all people need to be treated with respect and that we should care for others. Differences are to be celebrated and we know we are treated with equality. We all know bullying will not be accepted at our school.
Our Anti-bullying Ambassadors meet fortnightly with Miss Taylor and Miss Yates (our Anti-Bullying Lead teachers). They have an active role in spreading the word about bullying to the whole of the school by taking part in assemblies, creating their own child friendly anti-bullying policy and meeting with the governing body.
Anti-Bullying Week 2017
Anti-Bullying Week is co-ordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and takes place this year from 13th – 17th November and is supported by SafeToNet.
Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year. The theme this year is ‘All Different, All Equal’ with the aims:
This Anti-Bullying Week we want to:
- empower children and young people to celebrate what makes them, and others, unique
- help children and young people understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school, able to be themselves, without fear of bullying
- encourage parents and carers to work with their school and talk to their children about bullying, difference and equality
- enable teachers and other children’s workforce professionals to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ and celebrate difference and equality. Encouraging them to take individual and collective action to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves.
