Bullying Intervention Group Update

All of our Year 7 and 9 pupils were involved in two separate programmes during the first week of May. Our Year 9 pupils were involved in the SELMA project and learnt about hate speech and crime and were able to work in groups looking at case studies.

The idea of this was to help pupils to identify different aspects of hate speech and crime as well as to come up with ideas to change pupil’s viewpoints if they hear or see this happening in our local community. Over the summer term, Year 9 will be given the opportunity to work on a project surrounding tackling hate speech in the local community. We will keep you updated on this. Year 7 were involved in the “Nice Bus Campaign” which involved being able to identify different types of bullying, as well as the use of social media and how to spot signs of bullying. It placed emphasis on social inclusion and how to build solid friendships. Year 7 will also be working on different projects surrounding these issues and we will keep you updated as these develop.

Our Anti-Bullying signature wall has been painted white and is ready for everyone to sign. The Anti-bullying team are finalising the pledge, as to why we are all signing the wall and what it will mean to have our signatures on there.

For the second year running, we are proud to announce that we have been awarded the BIG award for excellence in challenging bullying. This has been achieved through the hard work of our pupils and the commitment they have in helping to tackle any forms of bullying.

As always if you have any concerns or questions or your child has disclosed anything to you at home, please let us know so we can deal with it promptly.
