We were recently asked to take part in some work with BBC Newsround, in conjunction with the Big Award – An Anti Bullying group our school currently works alongside. Some of our year 6 pupils have been interviewed in regards to the pressures of the modern world, social media and the like…as you can see from the video link at the bottom the children were a credit to their families and the school. Future media personalities clearly!
The Big Award group comes into school at least once a year to work alongside our children and staff to ensure we are up to date in terms of training and prevention of bullying within school. They support us at all other times in the year, should we need them. We are also mindful of the modern world and the pressures of social media – so are constantly training our staff and ‘Buddy’s’ to deal with these changing pressures.
Well done to our Evie, Caitlin, Eva, Elliot, Brandon and Robert, we are so very proud of you all. It was a pleasure to see them talk openly about their feelings, they are a credit to our school.
This is currently anti-bullying awareness week and we have our BIG representatives in school this Friday for a special assembly, we would love to see many of our parents/carers there for this. It is usually a very fun and interactive assembly. Children can also wear odd socks on Friday, which is part of their goal of raising awareness, children can make this fun by tucking their trousers into them!
